Sleep Will Rock First Ave. Saturday June 1st


Doom metal masters Sleep will be stopping in the Mainroom at First Ave on Saturday June 1st. Bringing the noise with Sleep on this tour will be heavy rockers Big Business.

Years after the release of Volume One in 1991, Sleep’s Holy Mountain in 1992 and Dopesmoker in 2003, Matt Pike hard at work with HIGH ON FIRE and bassist / vocalist Al Cisneros with OM, heavy music needed one of its essential minerals back.

In 2009, falling in on either side of NEUROSIS drummer Jason Roeder, SLEEP, like a wooly mammoth awoken from centuries of frozen slumber, once again walked the earth. You could almost hear the universe sigh in relief that SLEEP was back. 2014 saw SLEEP release a single-sided 12” with a new song, The Clarity, giving fans a glimpse of what would hopefully be more to come. And so, the wait began . . .

All good things take time. In 2018 SLEEP fans were given a reason to break out their finest and get it lit because record stores all over the world were now stocking THE SCIENCES, Sleep’s first full-length album of new recordings since 1998. The sonic titans have reaffirmed their place at the top of the riff pyramid.
