Tour Dates:: Wintersleep

 

Hey, you. Do enjoy the music of the band Wintersleep? And do you live on the planet earth? If you answered both of those in the positive, then you’re in luck because there’s a definite chance that you can see Halifax’s busiest band live this fall. That’s assuming you haven’t already seen them play, because the band has done almost nothing but tour since their last album, Welcome to the Night Sky was released in 2007.

 

Thankfully for all of us, this 5-piece melodic rock machine has a new album out, New Inheritors, and they’re getting ready to wear out the pavement again. I have to admit that I wasn’t grabbed immediately by New Inheritors like I was by Welcome To The Night Sky, but it’s definitely grown on me. I can certainly appreciate the effort of not just putting out an album full of Weighty Ghost‘s - these new songs feel like the logical evolution of Wintersleep’s songwriting. Things are perhaps a bit darker this time around and not as boisterous, but there are still plenty of really solid songs that reveal more on each listen.
