Sleep Token are a masked, anonymous collective of musicians; united by their worship of an ancient deity crudely dubbed "Sleep", since no modern tongue can properly express it's name.
This being once held great power, bestowing ancient civilisations with the gift of dreams, and the curse of nightmares.
Even today, though faded from prominence, 'Sleep' yet lurks in the subconscious minds of man, woman, and child alike. Fragments of beauty, horror, anguish, pain, happiness, joy, anger, disgust, and fear coalesce to create expansive, emotionally textured music that simultaneously embodies the darkest, and the brightest abstract thoughts. He has seen them. He has felt them. He is everywhere.
Sleep Token, led by the perpetually tormented Vessel, creates music that brings to the fore our most submerged thoughts and feelings, coaxing them from the desolate, terrifying caves of our subconscious mind.
The band's heavy metalcore roots can be observed in their releases “Placebo" (January 2018), "Enigma” (2016), and a seven-track EP titled Peaceseeker (2016). The addition of the track "I Can Feel Eternity" (December 2018), featuring Ben Carey for the first time as lead vocals, marked the band's noticeable shift in genre.
In the spring of 2017, the band was chosen to play So What?! Music Fest through a contest held by festival founder Mike Ziemer.
Census is constantly working to evolve and mature their sound by writing music with purpose and providing others with a platform to be involved.
