While recently discussing Sleeping At Last's plans for the upcoming year, we asked ourselves - what's the one thing we love to do more than anything, and wish we did more of? the answer was quite clear: More music. A lot more music...
With that in mind, we came up with a project that we're calling, YEARBOOK.
WHAT IS IT?
We will write, record and release 3 brand-new songs EVERY month for an entire year! That's 36 new songs in total, broken down into twelve 3-song digital EPs that will be available monthly!
As a nod to its title, this project will feature many, many special guests and friends throughout the YEARBOOK year. Accompanying all of this brand-new Sleeping At Last music will be new artwork each month by the incredible artist, Geoff Benzing!
WHEN IS IT?
Each of the 3-song digital EPs will be available one by one, on the 1st of every month for $3.00 via www.sleepingatlast.com. The first is titled "October" and will appropriately release on October 1st, followed by "November" on November 1st and so on, for one year.
Because writing music is what we are most passionate about. YEARBOOK is by far the largest, most exciting and creative undertaking we've ever attempted and we couldn't be more thrilled about it! It will not only allow us to write and release way more music than ever before, but it will also allow us to experiment with many, many different kinds of sounds and ideas. When we sit down to discuss making a full-length album, there's a lot of effort that goes into making a very cohesive and streamlined body of work... which is something we still very much appreciate, however for a project as large as YEARBOOK, it allows us to fully stretch out creatively and explore anything we're curious about, during a one year span.
Our only criteria is to make music we're proud of.
So, there you have it! Thank you so much for listening to our music and for supporting us in the ways that you have over the years - it is what makes this project possible! We sincerely hope you enjoy this new collection of Sleeping At Last music!!
There's a LOT more news surrounding YEARBOOK, so we will write real soon with lots more stuff to tell you about!
It's going to be an exciting year!
