The Sleeping Revolt

BandAlternativeRock

It feels like home. It breathes. It remembers the accidental genius of a whisper, buzzes like electric sex, and sounds like a torrid summer love affair. Its urgent. Its honest. Its vulnerable. Its sexy. Its alive.

Biography

The Sleeping Revolt was formed in early 2004 in Wayne, NJ. Their sound has been described as indie/alternative/rock, but with music genres and subgenres being what they are, a definitive sound can only be determined after listening to the music. The band independently released their first LP The Conscious Spin in March of 2004 to much local buzz and received great response. In January they released their second effort, an EP, entitled, "Random Acts of Silence," which, along their live performances, produced fans and attention in the tri-state area. In August of 2006 The Sleeping Revolt released its short EP, "III" on Jacknife Records and will be followed up in April of 2007 with the 7-track EP, "Nightmares", produced by Tom Pisani. The Sleeping Revolt is Chris Ricci/Vocals, Brian Neil/guitar and vocals, Ian Stafford/guitar and vocals, Andy Bookstaver/bass guitar and vocals and Mike Scardino on drums.

"The new EP has a fresh new sound compared to past records, it's more defined, agressive, and tailored to show all of the members skills and talents at their peaks" ~ Mike Scardino

"The Sleeping Revolt is a band that puts out music they like and go for deeper meanings as opposed to some other music that is out right now" ~ The Beacon WPU

“The Sleeping Revolt, a Wayne, New Jersey, band with some solid intentions to take over the rock alternative universe. With the lastest release of their EP entitled "Nightmares," USA4real believes TSR has what it takes to make it at the next level. A solid label, a tour, and a little marketing will go a long way allowing the suits to sleep well at night with these guys signed to their label.” - USA4Real, Upstream Radio

Lyrics

For Tomorrow

Written By: Chris Ricci

So it came and went like a circus in your head.
It was soft to the touch while it lasted.
You would drain your breath for a second longer than you had to then strain to see it was leaving.

And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –
And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –

And we’ll slide into sleep with the fresh event still in our heads, but awake with a feeling of panic. Was it real or a dream or a misinformed reality?
We’ll just smile cos it felt so alive, so right.

And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –
And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –

And tonight we’ll toast to the things no one else ever sees.
To the strength of a secret that we never thought it’d ever be.
For today, for tonight, for today, for tonight, for today, for tonight,
for Tomorrow.

And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –
And tonight we’ll live as we never have before.
For today, for tonight, for tomorrow –

The Audition

Written By: Chris Ricci

Back to the wall, the clock struck midnight, turned the grey to gold.
So far away now from where we were, with just four little words, you said it all.

Now I’m on my way home.
Now I’m on my way home.

We’ll fade into a distant memory.
We’ll stay in tune with everything we thought we’d be.

I heard your words before you spoke up, finely placed between the syllables.
Save the dramatic breakdown for the nights you’ll spend crying alone.

Now I’m on my way home.
Now I’m on my way home.

We’ll fade into a distant memory.
We’ll stay in tune with everything we thought we’d be.

How did we get here?
Maybe we’re supposed to be here.
It’s either, sever, forever, never or ever after.
How did we get here?
Maybe we’re supposed to be here.
It’s either, sever, forever, never or ever after.

We’ll fade into a distant memory.
We’ll stay in tune with everything we thought we’d be.

Where did you think we’d be?
