Yes, I know neither band is straight up metal but both have a lot metal influence. Should be ready to roll around Feb/March.

---------------------------------------------

The decision to have Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and sleepmakeswaves co-exist on a single piece of polycarbonate was made on the spur of the moment, without much thought for time or expense. But like most good ideas, it has developed a momentum all of its own, with all involved spending the last few months zealously writing and recording to see the split out by early 2009.

The release will find both bands delving deeper into their latent electronic influences and refining their songwriting, with Tangled's dark experimentalism offsetting the cinematic exuberance of the sleepmakeswaves half. But most significantly, the split will foreshadow bigger and better things for both groups. It will be a precursor to Tangled Thoughts of Leaving's debut full-length, slated for late 2009, and a similar sleepmakeswaves release that exists in the more distant future. Release details, tracklisting and artwork coming soon.

Yeah we are just trying to sort out the format for the bitch right now. As awesome as vinyl is, it is fucking expensive and you need to get a separate vinyl master done too. There will definitely be a CD release which will a limited edition, but if there is a vinyl release it will be extra limited. Will keep you posted.

We are working on sleepmakeswaves getting over here... more a matter of when not if. It's a costly exercise when you can only play so many shows over here.

TToL recording progress is going well - we're about 80% complete on our part. We'll have two songs on their, one is a 15 minute epic featuring our most brutal ending yet.

Gig this weekend at the Hydey with Eleventh He Reahes London:



We'll be playing an hour long set and really jamming out on some shit.

We are wrapping up the recording this weekend hopefully and will be mixing it next week. I've heard the sleepmakeswaves half, and it sounds very nice.

As for vinyl - it's definitely coming out on CD first. Hoping to launch it in late March.

If a) they sell quickly and b) we make some money off the CDs in a hurry we will definitely be looking at putting the vinyl release together shortly after (as long as we can fit the stuff on one 12" - each band has about 20 minutes of material and that's about the point where sound quality starts to take a beating on vinyl).

Will hopefully have some artwork, tracklisting and release date news in the next couple of weeks.

The last Tangled Thoughts of Leaving gig for a few months is on this Saturday May 2 at the Rosemount Hotel. Our drummer James is moving away so this is his last gig with us. Be there early (we play at 9:20) to help us send the little bastard off in style.


Our new split CD with sleepmakeswaves has been getting some sweet reviews, including being Drum Media Single of the Week a fortnight or so ago (even though it's not a fucking single.... go figure). Here's some snippets about TToL's half:

"....they've added a whole new dimension to their music and clawed themselves nearer the top of the 'most underrated bands in the country' category" - OzProg.com

"Building throughout its length with delicate touches of ivory and angular cymbal wrangling, it?s a lush, weaving composition that?ll sweep an unsuspecting listener right into the eye of a hurricane of harsh riffing and brazen complexity unlike any other. It?s an aural experience to behold, and up there with one of ?09s most intriguing musical moments." - sputnikmusic.com



We also have some new Tangled Thoughts of Leaving merch on sale at our webstore:
