First of all we wanna thank you for all the uplifting comments towards both sides regarding Schaul‘s departure from the band! It reflects our very own attitude towards the situatioun as there are no hard feelings at all! We never stuck our heads in the sand and we are more than ready to record some of the best material we ever wrote.
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!
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.
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!
To celebrate this new “Desdemonia fossil”, join us literally into the depth of rock for a very exclusive live show.
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!
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.
