Grand Rapids band Sleep Waker will release their second album ‘Alias’ via UNFD on July 23rd. Pre-save the record here. The band has also shared the video for the crunchy and mathematical track ‘110 Minutes’. Watch the visual, which finds the band in performance mode amidst digitized imagery below.
‘110 Minutes is one of the most energetic songs on the record. But it still holds the same melancholic theme of change brought from loss’, the band says. ‘This is a concept we decided to carry over from the new song ‘Distance.’ We felt that making one of the hypest songs on the record connect back into the story our past song, ‘Relief’ [from 2018’s Don’t Look at the Moon], all the while making this song relate sonically to DLATM with heavy, crushing, fast-paced riffs and constant background effects to build atmosphere. We really wanted to highlight that while Alias may have more melodic experimentation with songs like ‘Distance’ and Skin,’ a song like ‘110 Minutes’ is a perfect showcase of our signature heavy sound that we’re still developing while perfecting the newer elements’.
