Sleep On It

Lost Along The Way EP

Pop-Punk Trailblazers

ROCKS LIKE: Mayday Parade, Acceptance, Yellowcard

WHAT'S DIFFERENT: Sleep On It added frontman Zech Pluister to their Chicago-based lineup in early 2016, making this EP both their Equal Vision debut and the introduction of their new vocalist. The band have also put a little more pop in their punk with an emphasis on catchy choruses (especially on the emotional earworm “See You Around”).

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Sleep On It are leading the charge in the next wave of pop punk (with a little help from State Champs’ Derek DiScanio as a co-producer), armed with unforgettable hooks and captivating lyrics that weave through moments both high-energy (“Unspoken”) and slowed down (“Let Me Go”). 

OUR PICK: “See You Around”
