About in today already walks tomorrow:

sleepmakeswaves‘ 2008 debut in today already walks tomorrow was the first glimpse of the Australian band on the global stage. Indeed, the viral success of lead track one day you will teach me to let go of my fears made such an impact that it catapulted the band to the top end of The Silent Ballet’s 2008 end-of-year list, clocked over 50,000 downloads and earned them a loyal following around the world. Such a reaction for a band only newly minted in their homeland suggested something special about their approach – with music so immediately evocative that it speaks to people on a universal level.

sleepmakeswaves’ dramatic and sumptuous approach to their craft is brilliantly showcased on this diverse record, which blends powerful, dynamic guitars and strings with impeccably constructed electronics. At times heavy and climactic; at times understated and quiet, but always with a keen sense of melody and songcraft at the heart, in today already walks tomorrow truly merits the descriptions ‘lush’ and ‘cinematic’.

Previously only available digitally and as a limited import CD outside of Australia, the album will be re-issued worldwide excluding Australia and New Zealand on Monotreme Records, including a CD edition and a deluxe 180 gm black vinyl edition of 500 copies that includes a free poster and album CD in a printed card wallet inside – the first ever vinyl pressing. All orders from the label’s web shop will also include free sleepmakeswaves pins and stickers whilst supplies last.

Last year the band’s 2011 ARIA Award-nominated full-length debut album And So We Destroyed Everything was also re-issued by Monotreme Records in deluxe 2-CD and 2LP editions, and we are proud to be bringing more of sleepmakeswaves’ fantastic music to a wider audience.

The band’s current lineup of guitarist Jonathan Khor, guitarist Otto Wicks-Green, drummer Tim Adderley and bassist Alex Wilson have spent the better part of the past 3 years touring the world, including performances at SXSW, Dunk! Festival and touring alongside bands such as Karnivool, Boris, 65daysofstatic, Tortoise and more. They have earned a devoted following around the world, for their innovative and expansive music, coupled with an electrifying live show that has seen them sell out venues across their homeland. Recently, Kat Morris, the director of Europe’s leading festival for new music, ‘The Great Escape’, included sleepmakeswaves in her ‘top 5 Australian bands’ list.
