Sleeping Dogs are a band from New Zealand that are flying high on their own unique trajectory. With a sprawling national tour of their home country under their belts that lasted for the whole of 2011, and hot off the heels from recording their latest album earlier this year in the UK, they are set to tear up the main centres of NZ this June and July before they head overseas to conquer the UK and Europe in October.
Sleeping Dogs were born when Thomas Reid - singer, songwriter - received summons from the Rock Gods to start a new, epic rock band. Next to join was Rocky on the bass, and 2012 saw the welcoming of Tony Pantera on guitar and Jay Arthur on drums. Together they have but one mission - to bring rock to the music lover of today.
"Do you feel that 'Epic' is a word thrown around with such enthusiasm these days that it has become blocked by the filters of selective hearing and any associated meaning is sucked out of it? Then listen to this album. As promised, it will illustrate, then reiterate what 'Epic' truly means." - Petros, Muzic.net.nz
Sleeping Dogs hit the road this month with Wellington band Supermodel on a 3 date tour of New Zealand. The tour will showcase brand new material from both bands and all three shows will be filmed for a Live DVD release.
