Wednesday 29th August, 2012

Sleepy Sun announce Spine Hits Expanded Tour Edition,
with bonus ‘Live in Vancouver’ album
- European Tour dates approaching! -


 

“For their third album, the San Francisco psych-rockers hit the button marked “classic” and deliver a killer set of rock songs in the grandest tradition – from Jimi Hendrix, to the Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath to Queens of the Stone Age.” - 4/5 The Times

“It’s clear San Francisco is still a haven for expressive, powerful and above all cool music, and Sleepy Sun fly the flag with style” – 8/10 The 405

"Sleepy Sun are at their best when they revel in both light and dark, unleashing throatily riffing guitars to disrupt pastoral interludes." – NME


Earlier this Summer, Sleepy Sun completed a full European tour in support of their fantastic third album ‘Spine Hits’, taking in ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festival and both the Primavera festivals in Spain and Portugal.

For their return visit this September (see below for full schedule), today ATP release a special edition of ‘Spine Hits’ that will come with a free download of a newly released performance entitled ‘Live In Vancouver’. The live set captures their unrivaled live show in it's full glory - recorded at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret earlier this year - and is available now via Amazon, iTunes and the ATP Store.

No strangers to the open road Sleepy Sun are a rambling band - a certifiably vagabond unit that have built quite a reputation among American and European audiences as fine-tuned, ironclad locomotive and candy sweet heavy pop machine. In doing so catching the attention of Arctic Monkeys, Black Angels, and Low Anthem who have all personally asked them to join them on their own continental drifting jaunts.
