Description

Once referred to as "the ultimate stoner rock band," SLEEP evolved in the early 1990s and has exerted a considerable, consistent influence on modern heavy music ever since. The group split in 1997 after the release of two hugely influential albums - "Sleep's Holy Mountain" and "Dopesmoker" - returning triumphantly in 2009 when it performed two UK shows as part of All Tomorrow's Parties' (ATP) The Fans Strike Back festival, playing "Holy Mountain" in its entirety along with selections from "Dopesmoker." The rabid fan response to the 2009 shows resulted in a run of U.S. live dates in September 2010 that immediately sold out. In celebrating the band's return, The New York Times referred to the trio as "excellent" and The Chicago Tribune called SLEEP "stoner-rock titans."
