Many things occured during the last month in camp Sleepy. A band is always a quite fragile construct and as time goes by, changes need to be made to keep the project alive.
But one step at a time:
–Max, founding member and drummer for Sleepers’ Guilt left the band. We decided together to go seperate ways due to the ominous differences. We seperated in good terms without bad blood, yaddah yaddah, you know the hackneyed saying. But in our particular case, it really fits. We wish Max all the best for his future.
-So, as we are without drummer at the moment, our main priority is to find a new one. We took the decision to stop playing live for a moment now. Not only because the lack of a drummer, but also to focus on our next full lentgh album. We’ ve written a shitload of songs and we are still in the writing process. We never had so many songs written for one album. (and we’re still writing a bunch more) This time we’ll have much more choice to pick only the best songs. We’ll keep you informed on the whole process…
-Last but not least we want to welcome Marc Froehling on board as our new guitarist! He played with us live shows since juli and as time went by, the feeling was just right to take him on board.

So there you have it. We’ll hope to complete our line up as soon as possible. The following step will be the recording of the next album. After that we’ll be ready to hit the road again.
Wow, you didn’t hear from us for quite some time!

We decided to record two songs. It feels to be back at it and breathe some studio air. More details about those two songs will follow soon.
On the pic you can see Phil tracking his bass.
And most important thanks to all our fans out there!!! Without you this would not be possible 🙂
We will be busy over winter to prepare new stuff for you guys and we are looking forward to see you all again in 2018!
