Unsigned & Streamed: For Sleeping Or Jumping

Posted by on April 12, 2012

Why should major label bands be the only ones who get love? Unsigned & Streamed is a new column where we stream a song from an unsigned band we at Metal Insider really dig.

This week, we’re giving a little extra exposure to Boston’s For Sleeping Or Jumping. Having met during their time as students at the Berklee College of Music, this five piece band has made a name for themselves in the Boston scene with their first two EPs and explosive live shows. The group even caught the attention of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman, who helped out with production on their latest EP Dead Languages along with producer Ryan Siegel (Glassjaw). While you can definitely hear The Dillinger Escape Plan’s influence, For Sleeping Or Jumping also put their own unique spin on math metal, blending chaos with melody surprisingly well. So without further ado, listen to the song “Bone Of Contention,” off of Dead Languages, in the stream below.

For Sleeping Or Jumping will be self-releasing (via their own label Auxiliary Records) their new EP Dead Languages on May 15. You can listen more songs and stay up to date on For Sleeping Or Jumping via Facebook and Bandcamp.

If you’re in an unsigned band and would like to participate in Unsigned & Streamed, email a link to your band’s music and a brief bio to tips [at] metalinsider.com for consideration.
