About the Band: Instead of Sleeping has built up a strong reputation as an independent rock band touring regionally on their most recently released self-titled studio effort, out in mid-2010. They are now touring to promote the release of their upcoming album, “The Reds The Blacks The Grays”. The band has been privileged to share the stage with notable national acts “fun” and “The Dear Hunter”. Since 2010, Instead of Sleeping has evolved into a multi-instrumental outfit comprised to two drum kits, horns, keys, and a myriad of other sound that transforms the band from a traditional indie-rock quartet into a swelling stage presence that captivates audiences up and down the East Coast.
