Thank you, Schaul!

Folks, we have news for you. Schaul has decided to part ways with the band.
Here‘s what he wants to tell you:

Dear SG fan community,

I hereby announce with a heavy heart that in the future I will no longer stand behind the microphone for SG for personal reasons.

This was a difficult decision that I have struggled with for some time already.

The production for the new album is going well and I am sure that Chris, Phil, Marc and Ben will find a worthy replacement who will take the band to the next level.

I am grateful for the past 7 years in which I have been able to fulfill a lot of dreams, such as performing with bands like Amon Amarth or performing at international festivals like Metaldays.

In any case, I would like to thank all SG members who have played in the band during this time, Max, Manu, Jim, Jeff, Ben, Marc, Chris and Phil, for this incredible journey.

Look forward to the new album and continue to support SG as you have done so far!

We will definitely see each other again at one or the other concert, festival or anywhere else.

Cheerz

Schaul

We wish him all the best for all the future endeavors he will encounter. We thank him for all that he provided to the band during the past seven years.

Music in times of confinement

Like so many other musicians these days, we try to process the ongoing events into something positive, in our case, creative output.

From this week on, we release, in a spontaneous manner, more or less finished songs that are written in our times of confinement.
If you feel the itch to contribute something to the ideas, be it vocals, guitar- or even toilet seat solos, feel free to get in touch with us.
If not, you can simply listen to some brand new music.

Those songs are not intended to appear on a later Sleepers‘ Guilt album. All the ideas will be collected on our bandcamp page.
First song idea comes from Chris, who worked together with Phil on this one for the past few days. This song has no vocals nor real drums, so, if it calls to you, get in touch with us. Collaboration in any form is good in these days of isolation.

Enjoy the first song with the oh so creative title Solitude!

Rock Fossils documentary

You surely remember the super awesome show in an old iron mine we told you about.

Just today our friend, director Marcel Dostert (Visual Aberration), released a great rockumentary on the discovery of the Desdemonia fossil and the show we played on Saturday, November 16th 2019 in the iron mine in Rumelange in support of Desdemonia.

Find his brilliant documentary here and leave him some likes and nice comments!

Bass and guitars are next, so stay tuned for more news!

If you’re a fan of literal underground shows, you’re in for a special treat!

On November 16th we’ll have the honor to play a very special show with luxembourgish death metal veterans Desdemonia inside an old iron mine in Rumelange, Luxembourg. Triggered?

Palaeontologists at “Naturmusée” recently discovered a new species of fossil brittle star and decided to name it after Desdemonia!

The ticket for 15€ includes:
– Desdemonia show inside the mine w/ special guests Sleepers’ Guilt
– Presentation of a newly discovered fossil named ” Desdemonia”
– Mining train trip inside the mountain (approx. 10 minutes)

Trains leave from 19:00h at “Musée national des mines” in Rumelange.
Exact time of departure will be provided with ticket purchase.

There’s a limited amount of tickets (and by limited we mean really LIMITED!) so hurry over to Desdemonia’s webshop and grab those tickets as fast as you can!

Welcome, Ben!

After 7 months of songwriting and rehearsing, we were finally ready to hit the stage again yesterday at the Luc is a Wurstkopf Fest!

So big thanks to Mindpatrol and Pleasing for sharing the stage with us and of course to YOU, the wonderful people that make club gigs such an amazing thing!

Those who came to our show could already meet our new drummer. So please everybody, welcome Ben! He can’t wait to get out there and meet all of you!

Luc is a Wurstkopf – Fest aka. we‘re still around

*dustingoffournewsfeed*

Oh hello! You’re still here?! Well, so are we!

We’re ready to hit the stage again and what better opportunity to do so than a sausage party with our amazing friends from Mindpatrol and Pleasing!

On July 13th we’ll be back with a new line up and new songs for you guys at Mix N’Kawa Bar, Belval.

Our friends from Mindpatrol will play new songs in a new line up as well, so if you wanna join us celebrating a new chapter in both bands’ careers, mark the date!

Farewell and Welcome

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.flamingo.jpg

-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.

Cheers

Chris
