Hey I’m quoted in this article. Word :) sleep on itttt

POZ Showcase: Sleep On It

propertyofzack:

Sleep On It has their band roots planted firmly in Chicago, but each of the members comes from various states across the country. The intensity of their live performance is off the charts – drummer Luka recently suffered a partially collapsed lung after a house show [don’t worry, he’s fully recovered and now has +1000 more punk points for it]. Mosh along responsibly to Sleep On It’s blend of pop-punk/alt-rock and stream “Cope” below, a track off their latest EP Everything, All At Once which is available for purchase on Bandcamp.

Please list all of your band members and their roles in the band.
John Cass-Vocals
AJ Khah – Bass
Luka Fischman – Drums
TJ Horansky – Guitar/ Vocals
Jake Marquis – Guitar / Vocals

What’s your hometown (or what are your hometowns)?
Chicago, but none of us are originally from here.
 
How did the band come together? How long has it been?
John and Jake started the band in 2012, and the full line up came together about a year ago.  
 
How have you grown since you started?
We’ve learned how to communicate, and that has made us better songwriters. We understand each other and our different styles as musicians.

What sets you apart from other bands? 
We don’t focus on being any one particular genre; we like to pull styles from different genres to write our songs.
 
What’s the best part about being in your band?
I think the best part about Sleep On It is that it allows us to express ourselves in way we could no other way. There is a sense of passion we put forth that spreads from member to member.
 
More times than not, influences tend to bleed through. What bands are currently inspiring the music that you’re making?  
I think there’s a core set of bands like Brand New, Balance & Composure, Yellowcard, The Movielife, Queen, Saves The Day, and Fall Out Boy. More recently, I would say Manchester Orchestra, Moving Mountains, and Armslength.
