ABOUT SLEEP TOKEN:
2023 was the year of Sleep Token and 2024 is looking to be much the same.

The album has generated 400 million streams, whilst standout single “The Summoning” has generated 150 million streams alone, causing the track to trend on Twitter and take the #1 song spot on a host of international Spotify viral charts, as well as being selected as a “YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise,” featuring on YouTube’s homepage, viewed by millions of people every day.

The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact that ST has never played a headline show in the UK that didn’t sell out, “Aqua Regia” picking up consistent airplay on the Radio One “Future Sounds” show hosted by Clara Amfo, plus huge pop star Demi Lovato sharing Sleep Token’s music with her 153 million Instagram followers, Sleep Token consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.

And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media can’t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the band’s every move; NME note, “Sleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish. It’s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community that’s dedicated to studying the band’s creativity. While they have the same fervor as any other fandom, there’s still a notable difference.” Elsewhere, Metal Hammer called them “the most exciting band in metal right now.”

ABOUT EMPIRE STATE BASTARD
Having recently released their widely celebrated debut album Rivers of Heresy, Empire State Bastard is led by Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro) and Mike Vennart (Biffy Clyro live guitarist and solo artist, ex-Oceansize), and features the legendary Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Testament, Mr. Bungle) on drums, with Naomi Macleod (Bitch Falcon) rounding out the live line-up on bass. The concept for Empire State Bastard emerged when Neil and Vennart would spend downtime on tour sitting at the back of their bus sharing the heaviest, most avant-garde and confrontational music they could find. Now, a decade on from its conception, the project has finally come to fruition with the release of Rivers of Heresy, a collection of songs which adventurously probes slamming hardcore in the vein of Siege; the frenetic, visceral thrash of Slayer; the claustrophobic sludge of Melvins; the freeform vocal dexterity of Mike Patton; and the gargantuan stoner riffs of Sleep. Empire State Bastard is a band that’s rooted in the tradition of metal’s forefathers but informed by more recent waves of leftfield aggression.

“Take Me Back To Eden: A Serene Journey Through The Dreamscapes” Album Review

PHOTO CREDIT: SLEEP TOKENS FACEBOOK

It was a sleepless night, and I found myself wandering through the otherwordly soundscapes crafted by Sleep Token on their latest album, “Take Me Back To To Eden.” As the notes gently reached my ears, I was whisked away into a tranquil realm where emotions melded with melodies, and time lost its grip on me.

From the very beginning, Sleep Token’s genre bending style of alternative rock and progressive metal had me transfixed. The album is a musical kaleidoscope that creates an eidos of mesmerizing vocals, atmospheric guitars, and roaring synths. Its a sonic landscape that is both captivating and introspective.

The opening song, “Chokehold,” embodies the quintessential essence of their eerie, emotionally charged, and melodically captivating metal style. The track serves as a testament to the band’s undeniable talent, showcasing a fusion of colossal, rhythmic riffs and pulsating grooves.

Front and center is the captivating, enigmatic, frontman, Vessel, whose croon possesses a vocal gift that can only be described as angelic. Each note he delivers is infused with raw emotion, drawing listeners into a world of pure enchantment.

To complement the journey, the accompanying animated video takes us on a visually stunning and unsettling ride. We find ourselves engrossed in a dark realm, where a formidable arachnid creature, adorned in imposing armor, wields an imposing axe high above its head. Emerging from the shadows, this strange and ominous beastie exudes an aura of mystery and intrigue, further deepening the song’s enigmatic atmosphere.

Prepare to be enthralled by the artistry of Sleep Token’s “The Summoning.” This progressive metal gem effortlessly surpasses all expectations set by their previous surprise hit, “Chokehold,” striking a harmonious balance between brutality and melody.

In this masterpiece, Sleep Token showcases their unparalleled ability to seamlessly blend disparate elements. The result is a delightful fusion of heaviness and funkiness, where neither aspect overshadows the other. The cohesion of the track is nothing short of impressive, a magnum opus that flawlessly intertwines various musical dimensions.

The Summoning” elevates every element to extraordinary levels, taking the listener on an exhilarating journey. From the devastatingly powerful instrumentals in the intro and breakdown to the irresistibly groovy outro, Sleep Token demonstrates their musical prowess. Vessel’s vocal performance mastery shines brilliantly, marking a new pinnacle in his career.

“Take Me Back To Eden,” exudes an exquisite sense of sophistication, thanks in no small part to the artful inclusion of piano throughout the record. The gentle interplay of piano with the supple vocals and tender guitars in tracks like “Aqua Regia” elevates the musical experience to a whole new level, infusing it with a touch of refinement.

The talented ensemble of Sleep Token venture into diverse musical territories, masterfully blending elements of harsh vocals in “Ascensionism,” blackgaze in “Vore,” and metalcore in “Rain.” Remarkably, despite the wide array of styles, the album maintains an impressive cohesiveness that ties it all together seamlessly.

One of the stand out moments of the album for me is the song “The Apparition.” With its ghostly atmospheric rendition. It serves as a brief respite amidst the captivating chaos of the surrounding tracks. Its in these serene moments that Sleep Token showcases their ability to balance intensity with tranquility, evoking a sense of emotional catharsis.

The album’s closing track, “Euclid,” showcases versatility, driving the song towards a breathtakingly beautiful climax. Meanwhile, the incorporation of sweet acoustic guitar melodies in “Are You Really Ok?” adds an celestial quality, causing the song to soar with a resonant allure.

Take Me Back To Eden” stands as a remarkable body of work, skillfully uniting various genres under the Sleep Token banner. The band’s ability to navigate through this melody mosaic with finesse and precision is truly commendable, creating an album that leaves a lasting impact on listeners.

Lyrically, Sleep Token explores themes of vulnerability, loss, and self-discovery, inviting listeners to dive deep into their own retrospection. The enigmatic nature of the band adds an extra layer of intrigue, leaving room for interpretation and personal connection.

“Return To Eden” offers a refreshing take on the bands signature sound, exhibiting a refined and evolved musicality that takes listeners on a captivating odyssey.

While “Return To Eden” is an immersive and captivating album, it may not be everyones cup of tea. Its themes tropospheric and often melancholic nature requires a certain mood and mindset to fully appreciate. However for those willing to embark on this sonic pilgrimage, prepare to be jolted from the depths of your musical slumber. This melodic symphony will surge through your veins, injecting life into your dormant senses.

RECENT PRESS:
“It’s an ambitious, emotional monolith of a record, with all the hallmarks of future classic status” (5/5) NME

“…if you allow yourself to be fully immersed in Sleep Token’s world, the sonic rewards are plentiful” — Kerrang!

“Homer’s Odyssey couldn’t help but envy the colossal journey this album takes” — The Skinny

“This is a record that not only expands the band’s universe and continues to prod metal’s boundaries, but considers what it means to be human. Otherworldly they may be, but there’s the deepest empathy within” — Metal Hammer

Do You Wish That You Loved Me? Sleep Token Release Intriguing New Video

Sleep Token has dropped a new single/video for the masses to devour, DYWTYLM. For a modern day love ballad Its unique in that it sounds otherworldly and inhuman. It grows on you the more you listen to it. It’s courageous and impressive when a band creates diversity in their music. Sleep Token’s collection of songs are eclectic. Sleep Token’s front man Vessel just might possess the best voice of this generation. His vocal performance delivers emotive and powerful dynamics that range from haunting whispers to soaring falsetto. His baritone crooning is euphonious and mesmerizing in all of its complexities and nuances.

Sleep Token are from London, England. They’ve been doing the band thing since 2016. The group are an anonymous, masked collective led by a frontman using the moniker Vessel. The cryptic ambiguity gimmick has been done before S.T. and its a fun novelty until it isn’t. Concealing your true identity behind a mask is when things get really interesting. Be it for stage fright, biohazards, or so people can just focus on the music, hiding one’s visage is an aesthetic choice that for “obvious reasons” has gained new relevance. I for one, am rooting for the band to keep their identity a mystery as long as possible. It adds a fun element of obscurity and intrigue!

ST’s music is characterized by a unique blend of ambient soundscapes, metal riffs, and melodic vocals that together create a powerful and emotional experience for the listener. In terms of musical style, Sleep Token’s sound has been compared to the likes of Tool and Deftones with an emphasis on atmospheric and ethereal elements. They are a visual art performance act. ST’s lyrics explore themes of spirituality, mental health, emotional vulnerability and love.

Sleep Token has jolted the mainstream with their pop infused metal-core hooks, pulling off an almost impossible feat.

Their 2023 headline shows across Australia, US and Germany completely sold out in 2 days. Their new album Back To Eden set for release on May 29th via Spinefarm Records is their most highly anticipated installments to date. The band has amassed millions of fans they’ve indoctrinated “worshippers.”

Their videos are a tasteful blend of avante-garde and abstract. This four piece ensemble exudes upper echelon musicianship, creativity and originality.

It is clear that this group is carving a path directly across the music industry that cannot be ignored. I look forward to watching this bands success unfold.

It’s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community that’s dedicated to studying the band’s creativity. While they have the same fervor as any other fandom, there’s still a notable difference,” while Metal Hammer called them “the most exciting band in metal right now.”

With fan worship more intense than ever, and worldwide interest and intrigue growing at runaway speed, Sleep Token are set to reach bold new heights with studio album No. 3, Take Me Back To Eden, set for release on May 19 via Spinefarm.

Take Me Back To Eden — an hour-plus of music across 12 distinctive tracks — is Part 3 of a trilogy, a spectacular chapter-closer in the ongoing Sleep Token saga — a saga that kicked off in earnest with debut album Sundowning (2019).

Eden features probably the heaviest moments thus far recorded by Sleep Token (i.e. “Vore” + “The Summoning“), along with some of the most immediate and certainly the most emotional (i.e. “Aqua Regia“+ “DYWTYLM“), with a slew of other tones, textures, and tangents touched on in-between.

TMBTE sees Sleep Token boldly re-confirming a  true  love of the epic (the title track is eight minutes plus), while further exploring and developing those elements that keep the music removed from any kind of pack, howling at a moon that’s all its own.

TAKE ME BACK TO EDEN TRACK LISTING:
“Chokehold”
“The Summoning”
“Granite”
“Aqua Regia”
“Vore”
“Ascensionism”
“Are You Really Okay?”
“The Apparition”
“DYWTYLM”
“Rain”
“Take Me Back To Eden”
“Euclid”

Pre-orders are now available across various formats, including four stunning limited vinyl pressings, exclusive cassettes, and other merch items such as t-shirts, long-sleeves, and hoodies. Pre-order here.

Meanwhile, standout single “The Summoning” has already generated some 16.5 million streams globally, causing the track to trend on Twitter and take the #1 song spot on a host of international Spotify viral charts, as well as being selected as a “YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise,” featuring on YouTube’s home page, viewed by millions of people every day.

The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact that Sleep Token has never played a headline show in the UK that didn’t sell out, “Aqua Regia” picking up airplay on the Radio One “Future Sounds” show hosted by Clara Amfo, plus huge pop star Demi Lovato sharing Sleep Token’s music with her 148 million Instagram followers, Sleep Token consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.

And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media can’t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the band’s every move; NME notes “Sleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish.
