SLEEPER AGENT's 'About Last Night' Released Today

About Last Night is OUT TODAY and that... is unbelievable. August 2012 was a pivotal month for us as a band. For the first time in two years, we had nothing to do. All of the tours, festivals, video shoots and meet and greets were gone. The "Celabrasion" was over. Alex and I moved into a quaint apartment, Scott began recording other bands, Justin started a new band, Lee bought a zillion vinyl records and Josh picked up odd jobs.

We had a moment to reflect and it was BORING! We immediately got together and knocked out 3 new songs: "Be Brave", "Bad News" and "Eat You Up". Something felt different. The silly group of kids who wrote "devil-may-care" anthems, wrought with sexual innuendo, were gone. It was terrifying and yet, it felt right. As we plunged deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole it became clear that we had something special on our hands. We kept our grip tight on what we had. Today, with white knuckles and a heavy heart, we loosen that grip and hand About Last Night over to you. Pick up a copy, learn every word and join the family. We can't wait to share the experience of About Last Night with you every night. See you soon.

-Tony Smith, Sleeper Agent

In celebration of About Last Night, tonight at 5:00 PM CST Sleeper Agent will appear at Mellow Matt's Music & More in their hometown of Bowling Green, KY for an in-store acoustic performance and signing.

Sleeper Agent is Alex Kandel (vocals), Tony Smith (guitar, vocals), Justin Wilson (drums), Lee Williams (bass), Scott Gardner (keys), and Josh Martin (guitar). About Last Night is the follow up the band'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 through out 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.
