Stoner sludge / psychedelic doom metal behemoths SLEEP will be hitting the road again on a U.S. mini-tour this December.
There are nine confirmed dates at this time, as the trio continue live support for their recent album release, ‘The Sciences‘.
Speaking of releases, the band recently issued a vinyl version of the single “Leagues Beneath“, originally issued via the ‘Adult Swim Singles‘ program. Nearly 17 minutes in length, the track is almost an EP unto itself and has now been released as a 12″ vinyl single via Jack White’s Third Man Records.
The record is available in both aquamarine and standard black vinyl, both of which feature “a tentacled aquanaut nightmare etching” on the B-Side.
The black version was made available in stores on August 24th, and the aquamarine followed it in select locations including the Third Man storefront the following day (Aug. 25th).
