Illinois and the greater Chicago area have produced some of the finest pop punk and emo bands of the last two decades. From genre giants such as Fall Out Boy and The Academy Is… to modern day bands like Knuckle Puck and Real Friends the Prairie State has been a factory for alternative music.
The latest band to come out of the scene is Equal Vision Records band Sleep On It. Last year, the band released their debut EP "Lost Along the Way" and are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut full length studio album. Currently they’re on the road with As It Is, building up a live fan base in the US with their high energy sets. Their most recent EP was recorded and produced in part by State Champs lead vocalist Derek DiScanio. They also just finished up a run of dates opening for Four Year Strong.
As you can see, Sleep On It are currently getting mentored by some of the biggest names in modern pop punk and with a bright future ahead of them, now is the time to catch them.
