Post-rock trailblazers sleepmakeswaves‘ are set to bring their brand new album “Made of Breath only” to The Gov on April 6th as part of their national headline tour with Caligula’s Horse, and opening for this powerhouse The Unset.
sleepmakeswaves have quickly evolved into one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative musical exports. Following tours with scene giants such as Karnivool, Cog, Underoath, 65daysofstatic, Opeth and a forthcoming run alongside prog legend Devin Townsend, the Sydney band’s unique instrumental epics and their energetic performances have seen them connect with a diverse and passionate audience of music fans.
‘Made of Breath Only’ is the band’s most ambitious record to date. Following a period of intense touring, relationship challenges, illness and set against the scene of a world in upheaval, the record reflects the band’s experience of darker emotions, balanced by the unprecedented reception to and joy brought from their musical experiences around the world over the past four years.
Recorded with renowned producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Powderfinger, Rage Against the Machine) in Byron Bay, the album features a progressive combination of sounds hinted at in lead single ‘Tundra’ which premiered on triple j. The record at once captures the band’s push to challenge and evolve, whilst retaining all the energy, melody and vibe they are known for.
Catch sleepmakeswaves, Caligula’s Horse and The Unset at The Gov on April 6th.
