It's time to WAKE UP! Sleeper Agent have announced more tour dates in support of Celabrasion, their mom+pop music debut album. The album is available at the end of summer.
If you've not heard the band yet, Sleeper Agent make hook-laden scuzzy garage-pop rooted in both soul and Southern rock - all fueled by drummer Justin "Keyser" Wilson's manic rhythms and the dueling harmonizing vocals of vocalist Alex "Kidd" Kandel and guitarist Tony "Tutone" Smith, who is also the band's songwriting force of nature. Citing such musical artists as Jay Reatard, The Strokes, Pixies, T-Rex, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin as influences, Sleeper Agent are also influenced by horror and sci-fi flicks, as well as stand-up comedians. "We just want people to listen to the music and have fun," says Smith. "It's pretty obvious that's what we want when you listen to the album." Produced by Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, The Whigs) and recorded last July at Nashville's Tragedy/Tragedy Studios, Celabrasion reflects the easy camaraderie in this band.
