Years after the release of Volume One in 1991, Sleep's Holy Mountain in 1992 and Dopesmoker in 2003, Matt Pike hard at work with HIGH ON FIRE and bassist / vocalist Al Cisneros with OM, heavy music needed one of its essential minerals back. In 2009, falling in on either side of NEUROSIS drummer Jason Roeder, SLEEP, like a wooly mammoth awoken from centuries of frozen slumber, once again walked the earth. You could almost hear the universe sigh in relief that SLEEP was back. 2014 saw SLEEP release a single sided 12" with a new song, "The Clarity," giving fans a glimpse of what would hopefully be more to come. And so, the wait began....
All good things take time. In 2018 SLEEP fans now have a reason to break out their finest and get it lit because record stores all over the world are now stocking THE SCIENCES.
