The Sleep-Ins Take Girls And Outer Space On The Road Fall Tour Starts October 22nd

Work visas be damned, The Sleep-Ins will bring their soaring indie rock to Southeastern audiences this fall. The band, which formed in Sydney and is now based in Asheville, NC, will begin a U.S. tour in October at the Poetic Shangri-La in Goldsboro, NC with two sit in members. AJ Donahue and Jeremy Dean will fill in for Josh Schuberth and Stefan Pope. The tour will be promoting The Sleep-In’s Songs About Girls and Outer Space which is due out October 19th.

While The Sleep-Ins probably won’t be lighting anything on fire on their 11-date tour of the US Southeast, they will be putting their all into every high-energy performance. They’ll also be bringing along some great pieces of musical machinery. Beautiful-sounding tube amps, a finicky MiniMoog, and “Hot Cake” guitar pedals give this quartet of audio engineering degree holders their roaring indie rock sound.

The rock n roll gods brought this band together, in, of all places, a guitar shop in Sydney, Australia, where Chad Corley was looking for a job shortly after relocating from Indiana. He and Stefan Pope discovered they were on the same musical wavelength - a sound that would define the Sleep-ins — is a soaring, melodic and often thundering indie rock with a cerebral nod to the Pixies, Polvo, Shellac and The Shins.
