Sleep Announce Spring U.S. Tour With Big Business

Stoners, rejoice — Sleep are touring the States this Spring.

Fresh off of Matt Pike’s recent Grammy win for High On Fire’s Electric Messiah, stoner metal titans Sleep will be hitting the road in the US this Spring, with Big Business joining them. The bands begin the tour in May, and moves outside and around major markets like New York, LA, and Washington DC.

How the band’s performances will be affected by Matt Pike’s recent foot injuries will be interesting, though one assumes that Sleep’s significantly slower pace will make playing easier for Matt than it would in High On Fire.
