SLEEP TOKEN ANNOUNCE DETAILS OF THIRD STUDIO ALBUM, TAKE ME BACK TO EDEN, SET FOR RELEASE ON MAY 19TH VIA SPINEFARM – PRE-ORDERS, PLUS NEW MERCH, LIVE NOW
2 MILLION MONTHLY LISTENERS ON SPOTIFY ALONE
YOUTUBE TRENDING ARTIST + #1 ON SPOTIFY VIRAL CHARTS
With fan worship more intense than ever, and worldwide interest and intrigue growing at runaway speed, Sleep Token are set to reach bold new heights with studio album Number Three, Take Me Back To Eden, set for release on May 19th via Spinefarm.
Take Me Back To Eden (an hour-plus of music across 12 distinctive tracks) is Part 3 of a trilogy, a spectacular chapter-closer in the ongoing Sleep Token saga – a saga that kicked off in earnest with debut album, Sundowning (2019).
‘…Eden’ features probably the heaviest moments thus far recorded by Sleep Token (i.e. “Vore” & “The Summoning”), along with some of the most immediate and certainly the most emotional (i.e. “Aqua Regia” & “DYWTYLM”), with a slew of other tones, textures and tangents touched on in-between.
TMBTE sees Sleep Token boldly re-confirming a true love of the epic (the title track is eight minutes plus), whilst further exploring and developing those elements that keep the music removed from any kind of pack, howling at a moon that’s all its own.
TAKE ME BACK TO EDEN TRACKLISTING:
02 The Summoning
04 Aqua Regia

11 Take Me Back To Eden
Pre-orders are now available across various formats, including 4 stunning limited vinyl pressings, exclusive cassettes and other merch items such as t-shirts, long-sleeves and hoodies. https://SleepToken.lnk.to/TakeMeBackToEden
Meanwhile, standout single, “The Summoning”, has already generated some 16.5 million streams globally, causing the track to trend on Twitter and take the #1 song spot on a host of international Spotify viral charts, as well as being selected as a ‘YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise’, featuring on YouTube‘s home page, viewed by millions of people every day.
The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact that ST has never played a headline show in the UK that didn’t sell out, “Aqua Regia” picking up airplay on the Radio One ‘Future Sounds’ show hosted by Clara Amfo, plus huge popstar Demi Lovato sharing Sleep Token’s music with her 148 million Instagram followers, Sleep Token consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.
And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media can’t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the band’s every move; NME note, “Sleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish. It’s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community that’s dedicated to studying the band’s creativity. While they have the same fervour as any other fandom, there’s still a notable difference.” Whilst Metal Hammer called them “the most exciting band in metal right now.”
