With fan worship more intense than ever, and worldwide interest and intrigue growing at runaway speed,Â Sleep TokenÂ are set to reach bold new heights with studio album Number Three,Â ‘Take Me BackÂ ToÂ Eden’, set for release onÂ May 19Â viaÂ Spinefarm.
‘Take Me Back To Eden’Â (an hour-plus of music across 12 distinctive tracks) is Part 3 of a trilogy, a spectacular chapter-closer in the ongoingÂ Sleep TokenÂ saga â€“ a saga that kicked off in earnest withâ€¯debut album,Â ‘Sundowning’Â (2019).â€¯
‘Take Me Back To Eden’Â features probably the heaviest moments thus far recorded byÂ Sleep TokenÂ (i.e.Â VoreÂ &Â The Summoning), along with some of the most immediate and certainly the most emotional (i.e.Â Aqua RegiaÂ &Â DYWTYLM), with a slew of other tones, textures and tangents touched on in-between.Â
The new recordÂ seesÂ Sleep TokenÂ boldly re-confirming aâ€¯trueâ€¯love of the epic (the title track is eight minutes plus), whilst further exploring and developing those elements that keep the music removed from any kind of pack, howling at a moon thatâ€™s all its own.Â
Meanwhile, standout single,Â The Summoning, has already generated someÂ 16.5 million streamsÂ globally, causing the track to trend onÂ TwitterÂ and take theÂ #1Â song spot on a host of internationalÂ SpotifyÂ viral charts, as well as being selected as aÂ â€˜YouTube Trending Artist On The Riseâ€™, featuring onÂ YouTube‘s home page, viewed by millions of people every day.
The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact thatÂ STÂ has never played a headline show in the UK that didnâ€™t sell out,Â Aqua RegiaÂ picking up airplay on theÂ Radio One â€˜Future Soundsâ€™Â show hosted byÂ Clara Amfo,Â plus huge popstarÂ Demi LovatoÂ sharingÂ Sleep Tokenâ€™s music with herÂ 148 million InstagramÂ followers,Â Sleep TokenÂ consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.
And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media canâ€™t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the bandâ€™s every move; NME note, â€œSleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish. Itâ€™s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community thatâ€™s dedicated to studying the bandâ€™s creativity. While they have the same fervour as any other fandom, thereâ€™s still a notable difference.â€ Whilst Metal Hammer called them â€œthe most exciting band in metal right now.â€
