It’s been a hell of a year for everyone’s new favorite masked metal crew, Sleep Token.
With the release of their record Take Me Back to Eden, the band has synthesized a truly unique, fully realized step forward for heavy metal. We dig it so much, we’ve deemed it one of the best heavy metal albums of the year. You can read that perfect, unimpeachable list of albums here.
Anyways, as a real show of achievement to everything the band has accomplished, the band have announced a headlining show on May 22nd, 2024 at the iconic New York City music venue Radio City Music Hall.
In an Instagram post, Sleep Token writes,
“Come May 22nd, New York City shall gather in Worship at the esteemed Radio City Music Hall.
Those wishing to attend may register their interest at www.teethofgod.com to obtain their unique access code, in preparation for the exclusive presale window – which begins Thursday at 10am EST.”
To say this is a huge achievement is an understatement. Radio City Music Hall has long been referred to as “The Showplace of the Nation,” standing in New York City for nearly a century. It’s been a venue that’s featured some of the greatest artists of all time, including Pink Floyd, Lady Gaga, the Grateful Dead, and plenty of other legends in the space.
For Sleep Token to be headlining a show there really speaks to just how fast they’ve blown up. Just a year ago, they were a mere support act, and have now blossomed into one of the biggest draws in heavy metal. It speaks to the drive and dedication to their vision that they’ve been able to rise up this quickly. As for the identities of Sleep Token, including who singer Vessel actually is? Here’s what we think.
Check out the Instagram post below, as well as a pretty kickass poster for the gig that we definitely want. Tickets go on sale this Thursday at 10am EST.
