To be in a moment like this with all of you beautiful people, is something beyond what we would have ever imagined. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity. – Alex Wilson, sleepmakeswaves

If ever you needed reminding just how good and life-affirming live music can be – this one’s for you. Australian instrumental post-rockers sleepmakeswaves have announced the release of Live At The Metro – a momentous recording of their epic show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre in June 2015.

Originally recorded for triple j radio’s Live At The Wireless broadcast, the album features highlights from the band’s final show of their 55-date world tour in support of ARIA-nominated and J-Award nominated second album Love of Cartography.

The set list features album singles including Great Northern and Something Like Avalanches as well as a classic show-closing performance of A Gaze Blank And Pitiless As The Sun from their debut album ...And So We Destroyed Everything.

Headlining the Metro Theatre in their hometown was a high watermark for the band, whose classic Love of Cartography-era lineup features on this recording (Alex Wilson, Otto Wicks-Green, Tim Adderley & Jonathan ‘Kid’ Khor).

The emotions and excitement of the occasion are reflected clearly on the album – as the band take turns delivering heartfelt thanks and reflections on their journey, they are met with the cheers and tongue-in- cheek jeers of a rapturously supportive (and quintessentially Aussie) crowd.

Live At The Metro will be released on Friday 12 November on CD & 2LP through Bird’s Robe Records
