SLEEP To Reunite For Two UK Shows

Acclaimed San Jose, California stoner doom metal band SLEEP will apparently reunite for two UK shows in May 2009. The details are as follows:

May 09 - Minehead - Butlins Centre - Minehead, Somerset, UK
May 10 - Minehead - Butlins Centre - Minehead, Somerset, UK

Active during the 1990s, SLEEP earned much critical and record label attention from early in its career. Critic Ed Rivadavia describes them as "perhaps the ultimate stoner rock band" and noted they exerted a strong influence on heavy metal in the '90s. However, squabbles with the band's record company had contributed to SLEEP's breakup by the end of the decade.

SLEEP featured in its ranks current HIGH ON FIRE guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike.
