Hailing from the industrial-hub of Pittsburgh, PA, comes indie-rock band Instead of Sleeping. Comprised of Shaun Sweeney (guitar/lead vocals), Jeff Binando (bass/backup vocals), Woody Wright (guitar/keys/auxiliary percussion) Corey McClaine (drums); this four-piece has been demanding attention of the Steel City and beyond with their signature blend of contemporary indie rock since their 2010 inception. They released their first effort, a self-titled full-length in March 2010 and followed it up with their Just Hear to Listen EP soon after in January 2011.

During their years together, Instead of Sleeping has evolved from a hookah-bar jam band into a multi-instrumental outfit. Now showcasing two drum kits, keys, and a myriad of other sound that transformed the band from a traditional indie-rock quartet into a swelling stage presence. The fellas built up a strong reputation as an independent rock band touring regionally on their third studio effort, The Reds, The Blacks, The Grays, which dropped in the Spring of 2012. The band has been privileged to share the stage with notable national acts fun., The Dear Hunter, O’Brother, and Good Old War.

Instead of Sleeping is set to release their next album titled Young Lungs in the summer of 2014. They headed out to Chicago to work with renowned producer/mixer Marc McClusky (Weezer, Bad Religion, Ludo, Let Live) on their new full-length project. The band credits McClusky for refining their musical chops, stating, “We learned more about music and songwriting in the sixteen days that we spent with him in SAE Institute than we ever had in our entire lives. He really challenged us to write outside of our comfort zones. While this was terrifying, going through a creative and musical gauntlet, we came out of it with an album that we couldn’t be more proud of.”

Instead of Sleeping plan to release their debut single from Young Lungs in early April. Keep up with band online for teasers, new music and exclusive updates.
