Sleep Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

Following a near month-long stretch of European live dates, currently underway, stoner metal icons Sleep will play four special U.S. shows next month in Florida, Washington, and California.

The performances come in celebration of the epic deluxe reissue of "Dopesmoker," released via Southern Lord Recordings earlier this month. Entirely remastered from the original smoke-encrusted Ampex reels, the reissue features an unreleased live recording of one the band's greatest live performances -- "Holy Mountain" from San Francisco's I-Beam in 1994 -- as well as a brand new artwork by long time Sleep artist Arik Roper.
