The intrepid duo of Edmonton’s Sleepwraith are releasing their debut album “Day Terrors” on January 17, 2020.

This is the first album from Sleepwarith in what is expected to be a series of releases under the name. The songs and overall flow of the album feel like a journey that takes an emotional toll on the listener, with dynamic parts and unexpected turns. To Sleepwraith it’s important to create music with levels of intricacy that you might not notice on the first listen. Sleepwraith explains their motivation behind writing the album:

“We created an album with little thought as to how it would be received, instead of focusing on making an album that we would want to hear. We’ve always felt that making art with this starting point has created some of the most genuine music out there. Hopefully, our fans enjoy music for the same reasons we do and enjoy this album as much as we do.”

The first single from this album is ‘The Aphelion Complex’, described by the band as an angry trip to the infirmary with soaring melodies and heavy intricacy. Sleepwraith expands on the lyrical themes present:

“The main inspiration is the need to expel the demons within and contain them in an art form. We use this inner turmoil as a starting place, and try to make it into something beautiful. It’s painful and sometimes disgusting, but it’s also therapeutic.

‘The Aphelion Complex’ is streaming on Sleepwraith’s on YouTube and website
