Sydney post-rock legends sleepmakeswaves
have announced a very special 10th
anniversary tour of Australia this September and October.
Celebrating the 2008 release of their debut EP ‘in today, already walks tomorrow’ as well as ten years of touring, recording and releasing music, the band will feature founding member Jonathan ‘Kid’ Khor returning on guitar for these shows.
After September dates in Canberra, Newcastle and at Port Macquarie’s Wildwood Festival, the band will be joined in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in October by special guests all the way from Ireland, And So I Watch You From Afar. It’s the first ever Australian tour for the Irish band renowned for their boisterous live shows and the instrumental punk energy of ASIWYFA will make this one heck of an epic high-energy lineup.
It’s been a crazy ten years for sleepmakeswaves, the little Sydney quartet who dreamed big.
Hundreds of shows amongst 15 Australian tours, 5 European tours, 2 North American tours, 2 Asian & New Zealand tours.
Critical acclaim including 3 ARIA nominations, 2 AIR Award nominations and a nomination for a J Award, amongst highly rated reviews from Rolling Stone, The Music, The Independent and more.
Airplay including 3 songs added to triple j rotation, spending a combined 20 weeks in the CMJ Top 200 at US college radio and airing on BBC6.
Even a glimmer of brief commercial success with 2 ARIA Top 40 albums and a #1 spot on the 100% Independent Chart for ‘Made of Breath Only.’ They even cracked the Top 100 in Kazakhstan.
