Sleep On It are on the verge of a break out and this is not a band you want to, pun intended, sleep on.  The Chicago natives are heading out on tour with As It Is this Spring, bringing their explosive pop punk to a city near you. Drawing inspiration from the heavy hitters of yesteryear that are out doing 10 year tours, Sleep On It are updating everything you thought you knew about the genre.

Having recently signed with Equal Vision Records, the band are finding a new home next to all of your favorite bands.   After forming in 2011 and going through several line up changes, Zech, TJ, Jake, AJ, and Luka are excited to share the trials and celebrations of being a pop punk band with new and old fans alike.  Sleep On It even added a tab on their galactic themed website where you can email the band and tell them where you’re seeing them on tour.  They just might answer you back!  We love the personal touches and direct to fan interactions that the band is using to help make their fans feel like a part the touring life.  Be sure to catch Sleep On It opening for UK fan favorites As It Is and ROAM this Spring!  Check out the tour dates here and get your tickets if you haven’t yet.

Sleep On It just released the official video for “Memorial Day” which is featured on the “Music For Everyone” ACLU compilation benefit project.

Album Preview: For The Win “Heavy Thoughts” Out April 14th

San Diego’s own heavy pop punk band For The Win are set to release their most honest album yet this April.  “Heavy Thoughts” is due out April 14th on Artery Recordings and features the band’s most personal lyrics to date blended seamlessly with high energy instruments and vocal harmonies.  We got an early listen of the band’s new album and there’s no sign of a sophomore slump with For The Win!

The album kicks off with a declaration “This is a song for the beaten and broken,” and quickly shifts gears with guitars chugging alongside a steady drum beat on “Us Versus Them.”  Singer Kyle Christensen promises the listener doesn’t have to walk this world alone, which is the overarching message of this album.   Almost every song speaks from the heart about some of those thoughts that sit in the back of your mind all the time.  The first two singles from the album, “Crash And Burn” and “Dancing Shoes” show the dynamic writing both lyrically and musically from the band.

For The Win found the ideal balance between light pop sing along choruses and heavy breakdowns that we’re sure will get the crowd moving during their live shows.  There are a few stand out tracks on this album, “Nowhere To Run” and “How Can I (Get Back To You)” are two of them.  These are two of the more pop hook laden tracks on the album, but lyrically they have the right amount of weight to hold their own against the other tracks on a truly solid sophomore album.

For The Win showcase their softer side as well on the album with the closing track “Until The End Of Time.”   The final track starts as a slow acoustic jam questioning “Do I sit around and wait for change or move ahead to better days without you” and later moves towards a more bitter tone as the drums and a string section fade in.

All in all, these guys are proving that the next generation of melodic hardcore and pop punk are in very good hands. This is an album that not only passed the “driving test” (you know, the one where you plug in the aux cord and just drive aimlessly around town while blasting the album) but it also gets us excited for what’s next from For The Win!

Be sure to grab a copy of “Heavy Thoughts” when it drops April 14th on iTunes, Amazon, and through the band’s official webstore.  Pre-order bundles are available and feature exclusive merch and more!
