Stoner metal heroes Sleep announce new album, The Sciences, and it’s out tomorrow

on April 19, 2018, 5:12pm

If J. Cole dropping a surprise album on 4/20 didn’t already have your bong quivering, the announcement that stoner metal legends Sleep would be doing the same most certainly will. The album, titled The Sciences, was first teased in November of last year, when the band posted a message in morse code saying they had almost finished recording. After much anticipation, the six-track LP arrives tomorrow via Jack White’s Third Man Records. Update: You can now stream the album in full here.

Sciences marks the outfit’s first new song since they shared “The Clarity” via Adult Swim Singles in 2014. It’s also their first LP since the storied Dopesmoker, which was unofficially released around the turn of the century before receiving a proper reissue in 2012.

In support of the new album, which contains songs like “Marijuanaut’s Theme” and “The Botanist”, Sleep will be headlining a massive tour of North America and Europe. See the full list of dates, as well as The Sciences‘ artwork and tracklist, below.
