We'd like to officially announce/invite you to a very special upcoming Chicago show! On Feb. 11th, we'll be performing with our gorgeous STRING QUARTET (made of of the incredible players that played on "Storyboards," etc.) at the brand-new LINCOLN HALL venue here in Chicago! SO excited about this! We've heard amazing things about LH and can't wait to play! It's owned/operated by the same folks at Schubas Tavern, so we're confident it'll be one of our favorite rooms to play.

We'll be joined by our incredibly gifted friend, MATTHEW PERRYMAN JONES! As well as our pals' excellent brand-new band THE ARTIFACTS. If you're not familiar with either of their music, you will love 'em both dearly by the night's end.

Check 'em out... they're all up right now and can be viewed anytime here: http://bit.ly/SALJBTV

Very rarely does a band strike the ideal equilibrium between indie credibility and commercial viability, but it’s a sophisticated scale balance that Sleeping At Last has mastered across the entire decade thus far. With its third national release Storyboards, the critical charmers from Chicago are just as comfortable calling upon legendary arranger Van Dyke Parks as they are appearing on “Grey’s Anatomy” with the goal of relating to its astute audience topping any accolade amassed on either side of the dial.

“We’re attracted to melodies that are pretty relatable and listen to music that is slightly obscure or under the radar, but find both sides coming together in an organic way,” observes front man Ryan O’Neal before bassist/keyboardist Dan Perdue interjects. “All of our favorite bands are always forward thinking and ground breaking, but also accessible, which is the hardest balance to find. But being forward thinking doesn’t mean anything if no one wants to listen to you and it’s obviously not all that exciting to sound like everything else out there.”
