Bands usually find their groove in a subgenre, and their career blooms. For Sleep Token, the ability to expand and throw out the rule book was the force that set them into stardom.
The album comes out on the 19th of May. Worship.
That didn't take too long after opening for Northlane!
The mysterious masked band, who just finished their first ever tour of Australia alongside Northlane, have mentioned that they will be releasing an "offering" at 1800 BST Friday Morning, which is Saturday morning at about 3am AEST here.
We came, we saw, we worshipped. Northlane's Obsidian album tour wrapped up with a completely sold-out Tivoli show in Brisbane, and the vibe could not have been higher. This was one of those nights where the venue was full from as soon as alt. took the stage and it never let up.
