Post-punk group The Sleeping have announced their first show in nearly 10 years. This show will take place at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar on Friday, February 17 with tickets going on sale on Friday, January 13 at noon EST.
According to The Sleeping vocalist Doug Robinson, there will be a “major announcement” during the show.
“It feels like it has been forever, but it’s finally here, and we’re finally able to share… our first show in almost a decade. What better way to make up for long lost time. We invite you to come be a part of this very special evening at the legendary Saint Vitus Bar. One epic night. Original lineup. You really won’t want to miss this show and the major announcement that comes with it.”
The Sleeping formed in Long Island, NY, in 2003. The original members, Cameron Keym, Sal Mignano, and Joe Zizzo, founded the band from the remains of Skycamefalling, a dissolved metalcore group, before taking Doug Robinson, formerly of the band Stillwelle, as their vocalist. The Sleeping have since toured with many different artists. That list includes Jimmy Eat World, Senses Fail, and Taking Back Sunday.
The band released four full-length albums and an EP between 2006 and 2010 under the Victory Records label. Beyond this, their music can be found on various video game soundtracks. These include Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam and Guitar Hero III, among others.
The Sleeping will be playing alongside Death Spiral at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, NY, starting at 7:00 p.m.
