Sleepy Vikings tour dates

Tampa, Florida’s Sleepy Vikings has announced two weeks of tour dates (with more to come) in support of its upcoming debut album They Will Find You Here, scheduled for release on May 10th via the New Granada record label. “Calm,” the first single from They Will Find You Here is available for download now.  See below for tour dates.

Sleepy Vikings has previously and dubiously described its sound as “southern shoegaze,” but this tag is really just window dressing for hick towns and beer plus Pavement and Sonic Youth. This is a band that accepted an invitation to play its first show before it even had a set of music to play, so fitting into a genre is not a top priority.

What really is tops is the band’s music. The songs on They Will Find You Here are filled with dreams and nightmares that have already caused the local press in Florida to call Sleepy Vikings “…a swooning squall” (Orlando Sentinel) and note that the band is “…king-hell committed on blazing a trail” (Miami New Times).
