Below is our complete Oh, Sleeper news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Oh, Sleeper were the victims of some thievery while on tour in Cleveland, Ohio. Here's the official word from bassist Lucas Starr:
"Well, we've been back on the road for two days now. Things were going awesome. We got to Cleveland, Ohio tonight to start the Artery Tour tomorrow night. We decided to find a movie theater to see the new Keven Spacey movie, 21.
"After the movie was over, we went out to our van and the driver side door's lock was busted. All of our personal belongings were stolen from us. All of the laptops, cell phones, phone chargers, ipods, ipod transmitter, books, money, cameras, backpacks, cash box, all of the band's money, briefcases, jackets, our GPS, and many other belongings were taken from us. It's very unfortunate, and very discouraging.
"As of now, we plan on continuing the tour. If anything changes, we'll let you know first-hand. Please keep us in your prayers, and pray that I will have mercy if I ever find the dude who stole our stuff."
Demon Hunter will launch their "Stronger Than Hell Tour" this summer in support of the band's brand new album for Solid State Records, Storm The Gates Of Hell.
"The Stronger Than Hell Tour will definitely be an amazing experience for everyone involved," said singer Ryan Clark, who co-founded Demon Hunter with his guitarist brother Don shortly before the release of their self-titled debut album in 2002. "We can't wait to play some new material and get to know more of our amazing fans."
"I can't tell you how excited we are to get back out there on the road and play some new songs along with the crowd favorites," added Don, who recently attended the 2008 Grammy Awards as a nominee in the graphic design / packaging category (Ryan Clark was nominated last year and the year before).
The Stronger Than Hell Tour will feature special guest Living Sacrifice, the legendary metal band whose alumnus went on to join bands like Evanescence and P.O.D. This will be their first tour since reuniting.
The tour lineup is rounded out by Demon Hunter's labelmates in Oh, Sleeper as well as The Famine (featuring former Demon Hunter guitarist Chris McCaddon) and North Carolina's Advent.
"The members of Demon Hunter are ecstatic about the lineup," said Ryan Clark. "It features many of our old friends in both reunited and amazing new bands. For us, it's a bit of a family reunion."
Demon Hunter recently completed a video for "Carry Me Down," the second single from Storm The Gates Of Hell. The group was named one of "10 Artists to Watch" by AOL Music and featured on the cover of Revolver for their 2006 "Christian Metal" story. Demon Hunter's fans are some of the most dedicated in heavy metal. Check out their MySpace page to see the Demon Hunter logo tattoos that adorn many of their bodies.
