Sleepwave is the new band from former Underoath singer Spencer Chamberlain, featuring new band mate Stephen Bowman. Epitaph is pleased to release the much anticipated debut album from Sleepwave, Broken Compass, on September 16. Visit Alternative Press to hear the first track "Through The Looking Glass" http://www.altpress.com/features/ent..._song_premiere
With Chamberlain at the helm, Underoath became a major force in the post-hardcore scene, with two gold albums, multiple Grammy nominations, and crossover success unusual for bands in the scene. Now come Sleepwave with their debut album Broken Compass, the next step in the evolution of Spencer Chamberlain. With an even more melodic, accessible sound, sacrificing none of the intense songwriting that garnered Underoath and a massive following, Broken Compass is sure to put Sleepwave on the map from day one; work*ing with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice and Men), the band has crafted an album of intense anthemic rock.
Alternative Press put Sleepwave on the cover of their Most Anticipated issue in 2013, and described the band as "unbridled alt-rock , harkening back to the amped-up mania of classic songs by Smashing Pumpkins and Filter.” Sleepwave has already taken their fervent live show to The Used and Taking Back Sunday tour this spring and to festivals like their recent performance at Rock on the Range in Columbus, OH. Sleepwave will tour as support this summer with Nothing More. Headlining dates for Sleepwave including a record release show in Anaheim, CA have been announced.
Fans are invited to pre-order Broken Compass by visiting: sleepwave.merchline.com.

Not for me, but it's cool that he's making music again.

i think this sums up the majority of people's opinion on this project from what i've seen
01:50 PM on 07/14/14
The chorus is pretty intense and enjoyable.

Don't love it don't hate it , "isn't that just all apart of the process?"
01:56 PM on 07/14/14
Not bad, a lot more radio-friendly than Underoath.
01:58 PM on 07/14/14
I forgot that I was listening to music, while listening to that song. That being said, I'm all for Spencer making music and maybe making some waves on the ol' radio.

Seeing how I loved Spencers clean vocals in Underoath I guess it makes sense that I like Sleepwave, but I honestly think this album is going to be fantastic! I've already been able to see them live twice and they sound even better live. Especially when Spencer adds in a scream or two.

sounds like linkin park...

Heart strung on the clothing line
Absolutely love it, especially the Nine Inch Nails vibes. One of my most anticipated of the rest of the year.

I get that he's tired of screaming, but I'm not tired of *hearing* him scream. This isn't bad but it's not what I'd want him to do next.

Dante's is a bar attached to a strip club in Portland, located directly across the street from the biggest club venue, the Roseland Theater - I wonder if that's going to feel weird for Spencer.

its not too bad. Love him as a vocalist, but I wish it was slightly more aggressive. That being said, this is a single so
