As Sleep Token announce a UK tour for January, including a date at Liverpool Arts Club, Getintothis‘ Nedim Hassan looks ahead to what looks set to be an unmissable event.
Fresh from an extensive US tour, the mysterious Sleep Token will embark on a series of UK dates later this month, including a date at Liverpool’s Arts Club.
Little is known about this masked, anonymous set of musicians, other than their commitment to an ancient deity known as ‘Sleep’.
Their enigmatic leader, Vessel, has indicated in existing interviews that their mesmerizing brand of cinematic post-rock combined with metal is a means of serving this deity.
One thing that is certain, given the depth of their debut album offering, Sundowning, and the immense impact it had during last year, these are shows that will be unmissable.
They even performed a Maida Vale Radio 1 session prior to the release of their first album.
However, be warned, if you want to experience this unique act then get your tickets early; every one of Sleep Token’s previous headline shows has sold out.
Sleep Token will play Liverpool Arts Club on January 27.
Full tour dates are:
Thursday January 23 Trinity Centre Bristol
Friday January 24 Colchester Arts Centre
Saturday 25 January Birmingham the Mill
Monday January 27 Arts Club Liverpool
Tuesday January 28 St Luke’s Glasgow
Wednesday January 29 Riverside Newcastle Upon Tyne
Friday January 31 Islington Assembly Hall
