|Hailing from the US, One-man band BEER SLEEP has signed a licensing deal with Epictronic for the reissue of his album “Honesty is Violence”, due for re-release on July 29th, 2022.Signing statement:|
I’m ecstatic that I’ve signed a deal with Epictronic to help release the new Beer Sleep album, “Honesty Is Violence”. The music’s sole purpose is to be enjoyable. Are there themes and ideas in the music? Of course. But the goal is to never push an agenda or an ideology. Enjoyable, timeless music; that’s what Beer Sleep is.BEER SLEEP speaking of the album:
Sonically, it’s pure. There are no loops or sound effects beyond what would easily be capable at a live show. Most of the compositions are improvised in some way or another with vocals, guitars, and drums tied together by a drowning obsession with music and its theories. It’s simultaneously a studio album and a live set.Thematically, it’s dark, sarcastic, self-aware, and even nihilistic. It’s for anyone who has felt the many confusing emotions of being a human or can’t ignore the painfully obvious sarcasm that is life itself. Is it good or bad? Does it make sense? Is it fulfilling? Can you be honest with yourself and others? You could drive yourself to madness pondering these infinite possibilities. We are all confused and scared of life, and life is probably afraid of us.You’re the one who doesn’t listen to the radio; you hate the radio. You’re the one who doesn’t watch TV; it’s scripted. You’re the one who doesn’t go see a movie; it’s made by people who don’t understand you. You’re the one who doesn’t go online; it’s not real enough. Forget it. Put on a record, have a Beer, and go to Sleep. The ship of life is forever sinking, so you might as well enjoy the ride.Combining classic, alternative, metal, post-punk, and dark/gothic influences, Beer Sleep creates variety with something personally raw, fresh, progressive, catchy, yet hauntingly familiar that spans multiple sub-genres.
