Sleepwalkers is one of the more unique bands around right now. Based out of Worcester, Massachusetts, the 4-piece band has made a huge impact with the release of their 7-song EP entitled “Your Hell Looks Like Heaven to Me”. The band also features former members of bands like Short Ride and Lifeloss.
"Your Hell Looks Like Heaven to Me" is amazing. I downloaded it from their bandcamp a couple of months ago when I found out that I’d be playing a show in Cambridge with them. I thought the demo was great, but it was really the live performance that hit it home. If they’re playing your area, don’t miss out on the experience. The EP isn’t overly long, and I suppose that is my one criticism. Regardless, each song is awesome and showcases superb musicianship. Musically, I suppose you could make comparisons to bands like Bars, Converge, Botch, and maybe Twelve Hour Turn.
These guys are all amazing musicians, performers, and people. Getting the chance to hang out with them all at Bard College the other weekend was great, and I look forward to having more opportunities like that in the future.
