Equal Vision Records has just welcomed Sleep On It to its ranks. The band's first release under the label will come Oct. 21. 

The EP titled Lost Along The Way will feature five tracks, including "Unspoken,"which you can stream exclusively at AltPress now. The EP was recorded with producers Seth Henderson (Real Friends, Knuckle Puck) and Derek DiScanio of State Champs. Pre-orders for the EP are available now at sleeponit.merchnow.com

“Over the course of the last year we have all experienced a lot of loss in different ways,” says vocalist Zech Pluister. “Friendships fading, relationships ending, loss of family members. All of the songs on this release have something to do with wanting to be remembered, missing someone and questioning the losses we've all been through in some way or another.”

Guitarist TJ Horansky adds, "For me, 'Unspoken' is about dealing with the aftermath of losing a close relationship. I think most of us tend to bury parts of ourselves within other people that we let close to us, so dealing with irrevocable hurt and the inevitable change that accompanies growing up stings that much more. Zech and I generally split lyric writing; This song was especially inspiring to write because we have both been through similar situations and had a lot to say together."
