LIFE IS NOISE is proud to announce the return of seminal stoner/doom trio Sleep to Australian shores in January, as well as their first ever performances in New Zealand. The band will be slinging bong-rattling riffs to venues in Wellington and Auckland before crossing the Tasman to play shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Few can compare to the monolithic sounds of Sleep. The band set a new framework for stoner-metal enthusiasts through worship of the walloping tone of ‘70s tube amps, Iommi-esque riffwork and marijuana. Dopesmoker changed the genre as we know it, turning weed into its own religion as listeners followed the smoke to the riff filled land.

Seeing Sleep live is an experience that blows eardrums and minds alike. Witnesses to the band’s appearance at 2014’s Meredith Music Festival (or the associated Australian tour) will attest to the mind-bending tones and tar-soaked grooves emanating from a ludicrously oversized wall of amplifiers. The experience is akin to drenching yourself in resin, allowing the music to slowly burn and dance through you like a wandering flame.

Sleep arrive in New Zealand and Australia in January, 2018. Be sure to grab tickets quickly, as the rare chance to see these titans of metal won't last for long

Best show I ever been to! I could feel Al's bass in my gut!
Sleep is awesome on records, but live was an elevation beyond anything I've ever felt in their groove before. Bands in town is dumb. This was a Wednesday show, not Saturday the 4th. Being a Wednesday show at the electric factory, this show started off behind the eight ball. But Sleep were outrageously amazing. I'd see them a million times more.

The Van Buren is a great place for a show and SLEEP was outstanding from start to finish.
