Sleep Reveals "Dopesmoker" Re-Issue Artwork

As previously announced, Southern Lord Recordings will release a deluxe reissue of "Dopesmoker" from stoner metal icons Sleep.

This reissue is entirely remastered from the original smoke-encrusted Ampex reels, and features an unreleased live recording of a live performance -- “Holy Mountain” from San Francisco’s I-Beam in 1994 -- as well as brand new artwork by long time Sleep artist Arik Roper. Check out the artwork at this location.

In conjunction with its release, Sleep will be headlining the 2012 edition of the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands before departing on a 24-city tour of Europe and the U.K. commencing May 3rd in Wroclaw, Poland.
