Sleep 2010 = Al Cisneros, Jason Roeder, Matt Pike.
Sleep

The rumors are true. After initially reuniting for a "final show" at ATP The Fans Strike Back, followed by an announcement that the band would appear at ATP NY, Sleep is BACK with a vengeance! What's more? BrooklynVegan and Osiris will present the return of the gods of stoner doom, Sleep, at Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Sept 8th. Tickets are on sale now.

The NYC show is part of a string of dates for the band, who will return to the road (!) with an appearance at ATP NY, alongside Iggy & The Stooges, Sonic Youth, sunn o)))/Boris, and many esteemed others. They'll be performing their Holy Mountain album as well as "selections from Dopesmoker and more".

Lichens, who toured with Om in 2009 will open the show at Masonic Temple, and the gig Sleep are playing the next day at Chicago's Logan Square Auditorium. In Portland Sleep will play as part of Music Fest NW.

Sleep 2010 is looking a bit different from Sleep 2009, as Chris Hakius has definitely thrown in the towel and will be replaced by Neurosis bruiser Jason Roeder behind the kit. Full tour dates and some videos from the 2009 show, below...

Brooklyn Masonic temple is a great choice. they don't have to obey sound laws and you can smoke pot in there. I hope they have an hvac team ready to clean the place out. counting down to drop out of life...

this is so much cheaper than ATP, which is good for my broke ass. Glad I finally get to see them without spending a ton of money

So much cooler than ATP because you won't also see The Stooges, Mudhoney and The Scientists in the same night??? Um....ok.

F. It's sold out as far as I can tell. I know I'm super late, but if anyone knows how to get a ticket or if someone has an extra, please please please for god sakes e-mail me. I'm travelling all the way from Utah-got a plane ticket already. If I miss this I might cry.
