I have been a pretty big of The Sleeping since I first heard their initial release titled “Believe What We Tell You” and have followed them for the past five years or so that they have been on Victory Records. In that time they have released two very solid releases “Questions and Answers” and “What It Takes”.
Even though both releases garnered great reviews and underground buzz, The Sleeping have yet to be able to break into any sort of mainstream success. After giving their newest album titled “The Big Deep” a once over I can definitely say that this album is more than solid, but once again lacks that big hit single that will break them into the spotlight.
Honestly at this point I think The Sleeping seem perfectly happy creating the music that they want and have built up a very loyal following from that attitude. If you are a fan of the past couple CDs you should dig the new jams. And if you have yet to site down and listen to The Sleeping you definitely owe it to yourself. Check out the video for their newest single below:
They are also hitting the road with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, PM Today and Finger Eleven in the upcoming months. Check out the tour dates at: www.myspace.com/thesleeping
