Al Cisneros, Matt Pike, & Jason Roeder, rolled into Madison WI this past April 20th to celebrate the holidays at the sold out Majestic Theater. It was an amazing show… at least what I remember about it. *cough cough*
With support from ambient instrumentalist, Mono, this was Sleep’s first performance in Wisconsin in over two decades. The sounds of NASA space control echoed thru the theater as Sleep prepared to take the stage. And as expected, a rather large cloud hovered over the head banging crowd as the doom masters powered thru some of the heaviest riffs this planet could handle. I don’t know what it’s like to spend Christmas with Santa or Halloween with Michael Myers, but spending 4/20 with Sleep was a once in a lifetime experience. And if you were wondering, No, Matt Pike did not wear a shirt.
Sleep Set List:
Sleep will perform at the Decibel Metal and Beer Fest today in Philadelphia thus wrapping up their short tour. The banf has recently hinted at recording a new album, but no official announcement has yet to be made. Metal Insider will keep you updated.
