|After six years, Sleepless Nights are back with a new single, Crystal Mountains, and the announcement of a new EP.
In case you aren’t familiar, in the mid-aughts Sleepless Nights carved out their reputation as one of thehardest working bands on the East Coast of Canada. By their final tours in 2009, when the group was put on indefinite hiatus, Sleepless Nights were playing an entire new, unreleased set of songs. There was a miffed attempt at capturing them in 2011, but no recordings were ever completed.
In June 2016, approaching the 10-year anniversary of their breakout EP, Hang Up, Sleepless Nights reconvened for a weekend of recording in Toronto at Taurus Recording with Thomas D’Arcy (Small Sins/The Ladies and Gentlemen, k-os) to archive four of those songs. With former member Matt MacDonald (The Superfantastics) joining them in studio, the band recorded an EP that chronicle the now seasoned musicians returning to their roots.
Keith Hamilton will be out on September 15th but you can pre-order now.
