Sleepwalkers announce ‘Ages,’ out July 19th
Today, Sleepwalkers have announced the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Ages, to be released on July 19, 2019. With this announcement comes the title track available to stream now. The song “Ages” joins other album tracks to be released so far: “Wake Up,” “Never Enough,” “Reasons To Give Up In You,” and “Fault Is Me.” Listen to “Ages” above or wherever you stream or download.
Ages is available for pre-order now on limited edition crystal clear vinyl, black vinyl, and CD, plus a super bundle including your choice of album format with the “Fault Is Me” remix tape, logo enamel pin, and patch. All pre-orders of the album come signed!
Each track on Sleepwalkers’ Ages feels like the title song to some lost Hollywood production of the late 70s to late 80s, those formative movies that shaped young imaginations, touchstones of humor, struggle, romance and adventure. Through fourteen electrifying tracks, Sleepwalkers absorb the symbologies of American pop production and the iconographies of American rock performance with tremendous depth and feeling. Ages is a bona fide party record that is able to convey a mood of bittersweet elation through a series of well-aimed emotional arcs. The follow-up to their ‘60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), it feels equally effortless, backed by the band’s facility with the structures and language of pop music.
Behind this maximalist pop masterpiece are two brothers, Michael and Austin York, and Alex DeJong. Sleepwalkers are an astonishing live band possessing a sound both stadium-filling and soul-nourishing, proven over tours supporting J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Lumineers, and The Shins. Fantastic natural songwriting, personal experience amplified to a broad lyricism, uncompromising sincerity and uncompromising commitment to ‘having a fine evening,’ all of it steeped in the vernacular culture of Richmond, Virginia.
