New Sleeper Agent Album About Last Night To Be Released March 25

Sleeper Agent today announced that their highly anticipated second album, entitled About Last Night, will be released on March 25th on RCA Records / Mom & Pop.

“About Last Night is the product of countless hours spent writing, rewriting, recording, hoping, toiling, questioning, and ultimately pushing ourselves as a band as far as we could go,” said Sleeper Agent’s Alex Kandel. “It’s a record that I can hear our band’s history in…every heartbreak, every victory, every night spent in the van, every audience we’ve been in front of are woven into the melodies and fabric of the songs.”

About Last Night was born after principal songwriter Tony Smith started scribbling together song skeletons on tour. The group fleshed out those compositions after decamping their tour bus and shacking up together in a log cabin in Middle of Nowhere, East Kentucky. Instead of killing each other in their secluded camp, they watched The Godfather, cooked family dinners, and emerged five days later with 10 solid tracks. The songs were recorded in Nashville and Charleston with producers Jay Joyce and Eric Bass. About Last Night is the follow up to their 2011 debut Celabrasion.

Tonight, Sleeper Agent returns to the road for an extensive U.S. tour with New Politics and Magic Man. The trek kicks off tonight in Houston, TX and will wrap up on February 19th in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets are on-sale now. The band has also been confirmed to perform during the music portion of South by Southwest 2014 to take place March 11 – 16 in Austin, TX.

About Last Night will follow up Sleeper Agent’s heralded debut album Celabrasion, which was released by Mom + Pop in 2011 and immediately garnered the affectionate attention of the blogosphere straight to the top of the national music media – leading to prominent features on the pages on SPIN, Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Guitar World, Los Angeles Times, and many more. Rolling Stone hailed them as a “Band To Watch” and the group was named the #2 Best New Band in the annual Rolling Stone Reader’s Poll. Sleeper Agent also won MTVu’s Freshman Award in February 2012 and singer Alex Kandel was one of six artists to be nominated for Rolling Stone’s “Women Who Rock” contest in 2012. The band toured nonstop throughout 2012, sharing the stage with Weezer, Fun., Grouplove, Young The Giant, Ben Kweller, The Joy Formidable, Manchester Orchestra, Circa Survive, Company of Thieves, and more.

Sleeper Agent is Alex Kandel (vocals), Tony Smith (guitar, vocals), Justin Wilson (drums), Lee Williams (bass), Scott Gardner (keys), and Josh Martin (guitar).
