We are pleased to inform you that our boys Sleeping Bag have a new album! On their third LP, cleverly titled Deep Sleep, Dave Segedy has taken the band into heavier, more epic territory. The jangling guitars and fun whistle choruses are gone; obliterated in a full-on fuzz-guitar assault. Segedy’s signature pop songwriting style is still in full effect, but compared to the sunny disposition of the previous records “Deep Sleep” sounds downright tuff. Drenched in distortion & reverb, the album culminates with the nine-minute closer which is equal parts My Bloody Valentine & Weezer “Only In Dreams”. It’s quite an affair.
“Deep Sleep” will be released August 19th, and is now available for pre-order! The limited edition vinyl pictured above is hand-numbered out of just 500 copies on Kelly Green & Aqua Blue “A-side/B-side” vinyl.
As a special treat, the first 250 people who order will receive a free ltd. advanced flexi disc! Hand-numbered out of 250 copies, this green flexi features two tracks from the new Sleeping Bag album, which will be shipped to you 8 weeks before the album is released. So you’ll be the first to hear these new Sleeping Bag songs, long before they reach the masses. All you have to do is pre-order Deep Sleep on green/blue vinyl and the flexi will be automatically added to your cart. [One per customer folks…don’t be a dick.]
