Pride & DisasterSleep On It

Sleep On It have announced their new full length album, Pride & Disaster, out September 13th via Equal Vision Records. The official video for the first two singles "Under The Moment" and "Hold Your Breath" can be viewed below.

Pride & Disaster is the follow-up to 2017’s Overexposed, and features additional production by Kyle Black (State Champs, Pierce the Veil, All Time Low). With Pride & Disaster, Sleep On It harnesses the strength and vulnerability of the human spirit. Over the course of ten songs, they makes a case for enjoying life, even when times are tough, and never shying away from your truth.

“One of the big things we focused on when making this record was not only writing sad songs,” Pluister says. “Going along with the theme of growth, we wanted to show that there is more to life than just being sad. As hard as life is, there are still good days, and we really wanted that thought to be present in this record. It doesn’t seem fair to us to only portray the hard times.”

The positivity found throughout Pride & Disaster adds a silver lining to an album that is also unafraid to address the problems that many, including the band, face with mental health.

“We’re trying to be better every day,” says guitarist TJ Horansky. “And that’s what a lot of our songs are about. We want to be better people. We want to improve ourselves, and we want to help the people around us improve as well.”

Sleep On It ready Pride & Disaster with new single "Under The Moment"

August 6th, 2019

Based off the 1st single "Under the Moment" from their forthcoming LP Pride & Disaster, Sleep On It continue to progress and polish their melodic pop rock / pop punk sound. This new single brings the energy, melodic sensibility, pop bounce and sing along hooks of other Chicago native bands Real Friends and Knuckle Puck, while not sounding too far removed from the pop punk of the early/mid 2000s. Very reminiscent of what Fall Out Boy sounded like on their earlier albums, when they were still playing anthemic pop punk and before they unfortunately went straight up radio pop. Curious to see how the rest of this LP shapes up, and will have more to say after I hear the whole thing. Don't sleep on this upcoming LP due out early next month...cheesy pun intended.
