The band were due to reform for four shows in August only – appearing at the Star Shaped Festival – but from there, things snowballed. They subsequently sold out the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in December and then announced another tour for March 2018…again a sell out.
On May 1st 2018 – a whole month too late to be an April Fool gag – the band made a massive announcement: they were re-entering the studio.
A new Sleeper album is now on the cards for 2019. It will be followed by another tour (dates and venues tbc)
A Pledge Music collaboration, fans can pre-order the new album in a variety of ways, ranging from the basic – download, CD – to the more extravagant – signed CD, signed vinyl and also a very limited blue vinyl LP. Those a little keener can even help fund the new project by buying other ephemera such as hand written lyric sheets.
