‘The Sciences': Sleep’s First Album in 20 Years
Stoner metal band Sleep released the genre’s definitive text in 1998, when Dopesmoker made its way to the world. Now, Sleep is back, with their first full-length release in 20 years. And naturally, The Sciences has come to us all on 4/20, when more people listen to Sleep than any other day of the year.
I dunno what to say about The Sciences since I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but I do know it was something of a short-notice release. And when the band was asked in 2014 what a new album would hypothetically be like, the response was that it would be an “amalgamated effort of decades of riff immersion,” which is probably as good a description as any.
The Sciences is now streaming on your platform of choice, including Spotify below. And you can read a little bit more about the project over on NPR Music right here.
