SLEESTAK Start To Write New Songs; Upcoming Gigs

Greetings Doomsters,

We want to let anyone interested know that we will be playing a somewhat last minute show with Ravensthorn and Stone Magnum. It will take place October 21, 2011 at Cafe Lura, 3184 Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL, USA. Please join us if you are in the area!

While you are reading email, we'd like to give out some overdue props to the following entities for recently helping Sleestak attain world doomination: Hellride Music, Infernal Rock Radio, Shepherd Express, The Onion and A/V Club,, Born Again Nihilist, Temple Of Perdition, Aristocrazia, Cosmic Lava, Doom Metal Front, Metalstorm, and The Ripple Effect. Sorry if we missed you...

Just some minor news at the moment:

We're currently writing new material, hoping to record in spring or early summer. I'm not sure what it will be for (ep, full-length, etc) but what I do know is that it is absolutely CRUSHINGLY HEAVY along with some psychedelic moments. There is also some recent talk of a split 7" or 10" - but for now that will remain underwraps.

We have a bunch of new reviews of 'Altrusia' and soon to come interviews with The Obelisk and The Sleeping Shaman so make sure you check out our blog at and don't forget to browse the archives, you never know what you might have missed....

We'll be hosting the Days Of The Doomed preparty on June 21, 2012 with the venue to be announced very soon. So far, bands include Sleestak and Queen Elephantine with more TBA. Stay tuned on this bad mutha......

And lastly we'll be in attendance Dec. 1st at the Kyuss Lives!/The Sword/Black Cobra show here in Milwaukee at Turner Hall Ballroom. If you're going to this show and don't have the newest Sleestak cd, this will be a great chance to snatch up an exclusive free promotional copy that highlights the first half of the album. We'll be passing them out after the show!

Doom on,
