After hibernating for twenty years, Britpop legends Sleeper are back!

Original members Louise Wener (vocals, guitar), Jon Stewart (guitar) and Andy Maclure (drums) are joined by Kieron Pepper (previously of The Prodigy) on bass.

Sleeper enjoyed huge critical and commercial success in the mid 90s: achieving eight Top 40 singles across three top ten albums with well over a million sales. The band also had two tracks featured on the era defining soundtrack to Trainspotting: named as one of the best film soundtracks of all time by the likes of Rolling Stone. Sleeper garnered front covers across the music press and appeared numerous times on key music shows of the time like TFI Friday, Jools Holland and Top Of The Pops; an episode of which Louise Wener presented. Together, the band played the main stages of Reading, Glastonbury, V etc along with sold out touring across all of the UK and a support slot with REM at Milton Keynes Bowl.

The band’s first headline show in nineteen years was a sold out date at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, followed by a sell-out UK tour. Their music is characterised by astute, observational lyrics and big, hook driven melodies.
