Team Sleep is planning on dropping its first record in ten years this year and it seems like we're drawing ever closer to the finish line! Last year the group hit up the studio to knock out some new tracks and now the team is back again at Applehead Recording to do some more. Vocalist for the group Chino Moreno said in an interview with Rolling Stone the material being tracked was written over the last few years and for fans not to expect a tour… which kind of sucks, but hey. New record!
“A lot of this stuff is actually newer stuff that we’ve written in the last couple years. All those guys pretty much have day jobs and live in Sacramento – and I live in Oregon now – but recently we were able to get together and got a lot of stuff finished.”
“I’m not really too interested in starting another touring cycle and doing all the stuff to try and sell and market the record. I feel like the music has this timeless quality to it. I’d love to just put it out and have it be on some legacy shit; just let it do what it does."
There's some quality footage floating around of the tracking sessions, such as Gil Sharone tracking drums:
Oh, and then there's some jam footage guitarist Todd Wilkinson uploaded to YouTube:
Oh this sounds so, so good! Despite the ten year gap I don't think we're going to be disappointed in the slightest.
