Sleep Signals
Blending elements of hard rock and modern metal, Sleep Signals has garnered a dedicated following across the US in a very short period of time. Along with their high-energy live performance and relentless tour schedule, the band had help from the release of their debut full-length album, Open Your Eyes. Their highly anticipated sophomore effort, Transitions, has a 2/26/16 release date. 
Sure to please fans of rock and metal alike, the five-piece group from Minneapolis, MN set out to meld their roots in metal and hardcore with a catchier and hook-driven anthemic feel. That sonic dichotomy can be heard all over Transitions. While many of the album's tracks explore deeper and more thematic material, you’re as likely to hear a song about partying or life on the road. 
A rigorous, upcoming tour schedule finds the band playing almost daily throughout the first half of 2016. It is giving Sleep Signals the chance to bring their unique blend of catchy hooks, 80's-inspired guitars, and heavy breakdowns to a long list of venues. Catch them at a show near you…

When You Blew It! frontman Tanner Jones describes the influence of the band’s Orlando, Florida hometown, he notes that everything feels like osmosis, a process that sees a solvent moving through a semipermeable membrane from a lower concentration into a higher concentration.
