Australian post-rockers sleepmakeswaves have announced they will release their latest album, It’s Here, But I Have No Names For It, through Bird's RobeMGM and Dunk Records on April 12. You can watch a hilarious animated  trailer for the new album below.

At the same time the trio have also announced they will headline Belgium’s Dunk Festival on May 11, and co-headline North America's PostFest in Indianapolis in July. Further shows will be added. The band will kick off their world tour in Australia in April, playing shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with support from Taiwanese math rockers Elephant Gym and fellow Australian post-rock veterans Meniscus.

The band have made the following statement:

“The instrumental band sleepmakeswaves

 Decided rock music they must save

 In the year twenty twenty four

 Fans were clamouring for more

 So they dropped a new record

 It’s a rave!

The mysterious phase of nothingness, crucial to the smw creative process, is over: our new album is finally done. Thank you so much to all our listeners for your patience. It has been a slow but intense labor of love and we are proud of the songs on this record, and grateful for the many people who helped bring it to life. Hope to see you on the road in 2024, more show announcements to come, and we truly hope the new music we’re about to release resonates with you in the same way it does with us. 

 Love smw"
