"Sleep Signals Bring a Stadium-Sized Approach to Metal and Hardcore on Record and on Tour"

Blending elements of metal, hardcore and hard rock, Sleep Signals has garnered a dedicated following across the US in a very short period of time. Along with their extremely high-energy live performance, the band had help from the release of their debut full-length album, Open Your Eyes, as well as the singles and videos for "Never Walk Away" and "Here's to You."

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 Open Your Eyes. While many of the album's tracks explore deeper and more thematic material, you're as likely to hear a song about partying and life on the road.

The first single "Never Walk Away" is about never backing down, while finding your place in the world. A high-energy and positive track, the accompanying music video highlights the band's dynamic and potent performance style. Focusing on the band playing through the track in an isolated, desert landscape, it puts complete emphasis on their vigorous, high-powered style.

On the other end of the spectrum, the lyric video for second single "Here's to You" showcases the band's more socially conscious side. Addressing society's obsession with obtaining the "plastic perfection" portrayed in the mainstream media, the song's dexterous and multifaceted assault is all about breaking away from that mindset. Like the best hard rock anthems, it is all about being yourself, being individual.

A rigorous, upcoming tour schedule finds the band playing almost daily throughout June and July. 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...

Minneapolis-based Sleep Signals is on the Focus on the Lines tour, supporting their new full-length release, Open Your Eyes.

Blending alternative rock and elements of arena rock with post-hardcore, Sleep Signals put on a high energy and visually stunning performance in St. Louis. Backlit with vertical, mulit-colored light bars and using light boxes at the front of the stage lent a dramatic aura to their set. This stunning display was punctuated by the animated Paul Kreuger’s powerful vocals, which spanned from the occasional gutteral scream to soaring highs.

Although only two years old and with two new members on bass and drums, Sleep Signals performance was that of a much more established band, promising a steady rise in popularity and recognition. They seem destined to make an easy transition to larger stages and venues in the near future.

Sleep Signals released their independent debut album, Open Your Eyes, in February 2015. You can find it on iTunes. - National Rock Review


JPS Production/Booking out of Columbia, MO may be the new kid on the block as they have not even celebrated their first anniversary yet. However this is only a label and instead have taken the approach of go big or go home.

In the past week and half they have brought two major tours through smaller venues in Columbia including Grammy award winning Saliva and Sleep Signals. Sleep Signals, out of Minneapolis Minnesota and on DIY record label, is currently on their two week “The Focus on the Lines Tour”. Tonight they take the stage at a neat venue, The Social Room, with two very well-known local Columbia Missouri groups.

DarkBelow5Dark Below, a local group from Columbia Missouri, took the stage to get the crowd going for a great night of music. Dark Below consist of Josh Campbell-lead vocals and guitarist, Josh Grove-backing vocals and bassist, Coty Penn-guitarist, and Brett Markovich-drummer. Dark Below is riding a musical high as they are fresh off their last show opening for Saliva. They are set to release their new EP in late July. This energy was brought to the stage and the crowd fed off of it. As Dark Below wound down their set the crowd then became anxious to see the headliner who was set to take the stage next in a different approach to the bill.

Once all the gear and lighting was in place, everyone was ready for Sleep Signals to tear the roof off. As the stage lights dimmed and their intro begin to play their light sets lit up to only show glimpses of the bands backs. This changed quickly as their light systems took over the stage. Sleep Signals, led by Paul Kreuger-lead vocals, Robert Cosgrove- backing vocals and guitarist, Colin Smith- backing vocals and guitarist, Chris Schwab- bassist, and Zach Stadler- drummer. The energy mixed with their amazing style of music made for a show the Social Room will not forget. With the crazy light and smoke setup they brought to the crowd an arena style feel in a small club venue which allowed for a more personal connection between the band and fans. Sleep Signal left the stage knowing two things, they will be back to Columbia Missouri and that everyone in attendance was wanting more.

DarkBelow4The biggest challenge of the night was for the closing act who had to follow two amazing performances. The Many Colored Death though took that challenge and smashed all doubts. The energy Brent Moore lead vocals and guitarist, Preston Rodgers backing vocals and bassist, and Shea Spence- drummer brought to the stage had Sleep Signals members jamming along in the crowd. The Many Colored Death was not just a group who got up there and said hey and here is the next song, but instead would joke a lot between themselves and their regular fans. The craziest part of their show was watching Shea smash the drums with no regret. There is only one other drummer that I’ve seen be that crazy on drums, Twisted Brown Trucker during a Kid Rock show. Each member fed off the other’s energy keeping the crowd alive in the early hours of the morning.

Overall, this is a show I will not forget. The energy that all three bands brought to the stage helped rock the small venue like we were in a big concert hall. The bands also used the small venue setting to interact with the fans before and after their sets, which was great to see. This may have been a midweek show, but that did not keep everyone from sticking around to the end to see three great acts give their all.

Minneapolis hard rock quintet, Sleep Signals, have garnered a dedicated following through relentless touring, their explosive live performances, and their ability to blend catchy hooks with their high-energy songwriting style. 

2017 continues to be a huge year for Sleep Signals, which started with the release of their new single, "I'll Save You", on 1/27/17, along with an accompanying music video that was premiered by Vevo. The single was produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Justin Rimer (Saving Abel, 12 Stones). 

 The band followed up the single returning to the studio with Justin Rimer to finish up their new album, "At the End of the World", which dropped 9/7/17, and features guest appearances from Marty Mccoy of Bobaflex and Josh Brown of Full Devil Jacket. A music video for the single, "Drive", picked up 40k views in the first two days of being released. 

 Founded in 2014, the band hit the road in early 2015 and has since played over 175 shows in 26 states, sharing the stage with bands like Seether, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, In Flames, Saving Abel, Bobaflex, Ill Nino, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Alesana, Volumes, Capture the Crown, The Browning, Letters From the Fire, and 3 Pill Morning. 

 Sleep Signals released their second EP, "Transitions", in early 2016 and followed it up with US tours with heavy hitters Screaming for Silence, Lydia Can't Breathe, and Elisium. The band has played several festivals including Northern Invasion, Showdown Festival, SXSW, and Heart of Texas Rockfest.
