The following press release was also issued about the band:

"As the yawning divide between plastic mainstream mediocrity and wild musical artistry grows ever wider, this has becoming a thrilling time for fans of heavy music. Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, progressive protagonists Sleepers Awake are the latest and possibly greatest band to fly a fiery flag for originality, invention and unstoppable creative urges.

"Formed in 2005, this obscenely gifted quartet have placed constant evolution at the very core of their collective being and the results so far have been nothing short of jaw-dropping. The band’s first album, Priests Of The Fire, emerged to great acclaim among the progressive and post-metal underground and made it plain that this was a band with no interest in kowtowing to current trends.

"Now poised to unveil their masterful second album Transcension, Sleepers Awake are passionate visionaries, blessed with a desire to make music that transports the listeners to higher planes of consciousness and exhilaration.

Drummer Christopher Burnsides also adds: “If there is one particular overarching philosophy that guides Sleepers Awake, it is that music is primarily a vehicle to emote and provoke thought. All of these different elements weave around a central desire to write epic tunes. We are not the soundtrack for umbrella drinks and palm trees. We seek to express a desperation that we all share. It’s hard to articulate, but ideally our music is going to hit you in the gut and latch on to you, inviting you in for more careful scrutiny. We hope that we leave people feeling the sort of longing that we try to ameliorate by writing music. We want to dump our issues onto the world. And while writing is catharsis, performance is celebration! We also very much enjoy visiting new places and people and drinking lots of shitty beer!”
