The shores of Long Island, NY are known for producing some of the most influential names in rock. Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Straylight Run, and many others have been born into notoriety out of the Long Island scene. Just as it looked like all hope was lost and every band was becoming faded carbon copies of one another, Long Island‘s latest export, THE SLEEPING, comes along to shake things up and insert sincerity and originality back into underground rock. Punkbands.com said “[THE SLEEPING is] varied and interesting, hitting every genre from prog rock to hardcore, back to a pop sound and then off the wall to ambient party sounds with layered, ghostly vocals.”

The Sleeping will be emabarking on a full european Tour with support of Boston’s finest Therefore I Am.
These days, people put bands together looking to cash-in on a particular "scene." They cobble together a slick MySpace page, hire an agent and a "fan"-ager and quickly develop an inflated sense-of-entitlement. And while that's one way to go about it, there is also the old-fashioned DIY model: form a band with friends in a basement, tour your butts off until your songs and stage-show have something unique and powerful to offer and build a real following.
This was the roadmap for bands like Boysetsfire and Snapcase back in the day. And this approach has meant everything for Therefore I Am, whose fiery and impassioned hard / melodic rock mix defies easy categorization. Think about the fearlessness and self-reliance of boundary-breaking bands like At The Drive In and Thrice and you'll begin to have some idea of what Therefore I Am is all about, having developed on the road and in the rehearsal room.
