The Sleeping Adds Keyboard Player

The Sleeping (Victory Records) has announced the addition of organist/keyboardist Christopher Evans to their line-up. Here's a statement from the band:

"Anyone who saw us on our last tour with Envy On the Coast, Secret Lives and The Gay Blades saw a mysterious figure off to the side of the stage behind a whole set of keys while we were playing our set. Well now it's time to shine some light.

"We brought our friend Chris on the tour with us to experiment some Organ/Keyboards on a couple new tracks as well as some old ones.

"Things went really well and we felt that Chris' personality and talent belonged right here in this band. He immediately fit right in and became a perfect addition to this family."
