sleepmakeswaves re-release ‘in today already walks tomorrow’

Sydney’s sleepmakeswaves have recently returned from their first US and European tours, which included Austin’s SXSW festival and a co-headlining appearance at Belgium’s Dunk Festival alongside 65daysofstatic.
Following the success of their album “…and so we destroyed everything” the band have announced they are re-releasing their debut EP ‘In Today Already Walks Tomorrow’.
Upon its release in 2008, ITAWT was touted as one of the most promising “post-rock” debuts of the year, anchored by fan favourite ’one day you will teach me to let go of my fears.’ Acclaimed online music community The Silent Ballet listed the track in their top 30 songs from 2008 alongside releases from Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Earth and The Samuel Jackson Five
The re-release comes with the news that yet more dates have sold out on the band’s Australian tour with Karnivool in July.

SLEEPMAKESWAVES have announced an extensive Australian tour, celebrating the recent success of their debut album ‘…and so we destroyed everything.’

The band’s “(hello) Australia” tour sees them visiting 6 states in February and March, before heading overseas to showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas and then embarking on a headlining European tour, including co-headlining Belgium’s Dunk! Festival, alongside Pelican, This Will Destroy You and 65daysofstatic.

sleepmakeswaves’ debut album “…and so we destroyed everything” has gone from strength to strength since its release in late 2011 through independent label Bird’s Robe Records. After just 1 week of release, the album was the top selling record on Bandcamp worldwide and remains one of the highest selling Australian releases. The first single from the release, a driving melodic anthem titled ‘(HELLO) CLOUD MOUNTAIN,’ has been receiving airplay on Australian radio including Triple J, FBi, Edge, RTR and RRR and as far afield as the BBC.
