sleepmakeswaves announce new single ‘Super Realm Park’ from forthcoming new album

Super Realm Park is the new single from the new sleepmakeswaves album ‘It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It’ due out Friday 12 April.

From the band:

“Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the new single from sleepmakeswaves.

The main riff and synth on this track was inspired by F-Zero, the old school Nintendo 64 game. We developed and refined the concept into the first half of the track to bring in some late 90s influences.

We hit a few walls with how to close the track, until one afternoon in 2020 at an apartment in Erskineville, we suddenly realised it needed a slow, crushing, hypnotic wall of noise. We can’t wait to play it live.”

Australian instrumental post-rockers sleepmakeswaves have announced they will tour Australia, Europe and the USA in support of their new album ‘It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It.’

The band released an animated video to announce the new album and its planned release date of Friday 12 April, along with details of the first single ‘Super Realm Park.’

The band will kick off their world tour in Australia in April, playing shows in Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane with support from Taiwanese math rock legends ELEPHANT GYM and fellow Australian post-rock veterans MENISCUS.

sleepmakeswaves will then return to Europe in May to headline Belgium’s Dunk Festival, and North America to co-headline PostFest in Indianapolis in July. Further shows will be added.

The new album ‘It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It’ was produced by the band themselves, at Golden Retriever Studios in Sydney, Australia. Written during the pandemic, it was originally recorded during 2022 just before the band embarked on a 3 month tour for their previous EP trilogy ‘these are not your dreams.’ Further recording was completed in 2023, including string arrangements by Simeon Bartholomew (SEIMS). The record was then mixed by Andrei Eremin (Closure in Moscow, Tash Sultana, G Flip, Luca Brasi) in Philadelphia USA and mastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering in Boston USA.

The band released a statement to fans, saying:

“The instrumental band sleepmakeswaves

Decided rock music they must save

In the year twenty twenty four

Fans were clamouring for more

So they dropped a new record

It’s a rave!”

The long and mysterious phase of nothingness, although crucial to the smw creative process, is finally over.

We’re excited to share that we’ll be back for a short run around the east coast of Australia in support of our new album. We don’t get out that often these days so with every tour we’re focusing on lifting the production and the staging to provide an unforgettable and earnestly intense experience. We hope you’ll join us, and the amazing Elephant Gym and Meniscus with whom we have the honour of sharing the stage on this lineup.

On top of that, after no less than 10 years, we’ll be back at the incredible Dunk Festival in May. And after 8 long years away, we’ll be back in the USA, performing at PostFest alongside some absolute legends of the game. We can’t wait. xx
