Sleep “nearing completion of new album”
Doom metal legends Sleep have updated their weedian.com website to have nothing but the band's logo and morse code (as pictured above). Translated, the morse code reads this:
INITIALIZE NEW TRANSMISSION 2017 CE SLEEP NEARING COMPLETION OF NEW ALBUM ENGINEERING ACCOMPLICE: NOAH LANDIS LOCATION: 37.8044 N, 122.2711 W RELEASE DATE: UNDETERMINED RECORD LABEL: UNDETERMINED
So it sounds like Sleep's first album since Jerusalem/Dopesmoker is on its way! Thanks to Zac Lux for the tip.
Sleep play two of the "Grand Ole Opera" shows at Brooklyn's Pioneer Works tonight (7/14) and Saturday (7/15) (tickets). They also have upcoming festival appearances, including next week's FYF in LA, Psycho Las Vegas, and Austin-area fest Sound on Sound.
