More exciting news!

Sydney post-rockers SLEEPMAKESWAVES have been nominated for an ARIA Award for ‘Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album.’

Their second album ‘Love of Cartography’ has recently been released and hit several milestones which are pretty cool for an instrumental band – the album debuted at #31 on the ARIA Chart and #6 on the AIR Chart (#2 on the 100% Independent Chart behind Sia) & was also recently nominated for an AIR Award.

Recorded in Byron Bay at Studio 301 with producer Nick DiDia (Karnivool, Pearl Jam, Powderfinger), the album’s 10 tracks range from the epic bombast of ‘Perfect Detonator’ to the delicate and subtle electronic flourishes of ‘A Little Spark.’

Following a successful Australian headline tour in July & August (including over 600 people at each Sydney & Melbourne show), sleepmakeswaves will join Dead Letter Circus on tour in December.

sleepmakeswaves recently released a new video for their single ‘Great Northern’.
