Ben Roth, Joe Fuscia, and Kory Gable all joined You, Me, and Everyone We Know in 2014 and stayed with the band until their breakup earlier this year. Now those three musicians have formed a new band, Sleepy Limbs. YMAEWK were sort of somewhere between Myspace pop punk and emo revival (for example, they had an EP on Topshelf but also went on a Glamour Kills tour), and Sleepy Limbs are thankfully embracing the former and not the latter. Their debut self-titled EP comes out on September 22 via Know Hope Records (pre-order), and it sorta sounds somewhere between Weatherbox and The World Is. We’re premiering the video for “Float On” (which, no, is not a Modest Mouse cover). It stars the band performing in a house, and things get kind of horror film-esque. Watch, and stream another song from the EP, below.
They also have upcoming shows, including one in their hometown of Lancaster, PA and a couple in NJ. They play Brooklyn on October 30 at Goldsounds, opening for The Promise Hero (tickets). All dates are listed below.
