(c) Saint Slumber “Life is good. And we’re never going to take this– you know, playing live music– for granted ever again. You never know what show is going to be your last show."Joshua Perna Saint Slumber, the patron saint of synergy, corn, and phenomenal tunes, is gracing us with yet another summertime banger. Check out these teasers of "HALLELUJAH (NOTHING MATTERS)" from the band on TikTok and find out why I'm so excited about this. I can already tell it's going to be an absolute bop.

Welcome to the Church of Saint Slumber.

Last month, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Malibu x Saint Slumber x Moonroof live show in Philly. Needless to say, it was an incredible time. To tell you the truth, I was only familiar with one band going in: Saint Slumber. I've been following them since 2020. And by following, I mean that they haven't left my "On Repeats" since November 14, 2020. I had never seen them live before, but they topped my concert bucket list. So I was pretty excited for this one, folks. I was almost nervous-- how do you prepare for a show that's got YEARS of anticipation behind it? And on their end, having been away from the stage for over 800 days-- how can a band meet fan expectations after all this time? But the only question I had leaving Philadelph...

Release Radar’s Greatest Hits, Vol 3: 2021 Favorites & 2022’s Most Wanted (Saint Slumber, Mayko, THE HARA)

The last few months have introduced us all to some incredible music, I know. However, there are few artists who captivated me the way that Saint Slumber, Mayko & THE HARA have. Ever. So, if you take my advice at any point this year, here are three artists that I really need you to check out real quick. Trust me, it'll be well worth it. While there will be links and embeds galore for you to explore, here is a Spotify playlist with selections from all three for you to start out with: 2021's Winner: Saint Slumber's EP, how to lose your self. I’d honestly be really sad for you if you missed Saint Slumber’s late-December release last year. That is why I’m telling you about it now! :) Because how to lose your self is the best EP I heard in all ...

Saint Slumber Released an Off-Beat, Alt Pop New Single, “freak!” ft. 100+ of Their Fans

Saint Slumber has always been in a category of their own. They have a special blend of alternative rock and dark, electronic pop that I have never heard anywhere else. They're always doing something new that surprises me and this new single, "freak!", is no different. Blending over 100 fan voices into a choir for the track, Saint Slumber's latest release is more than a song: it's a force to be reckoned with. Check it out on Spotify below-- https://open.spotify.com/track/5oAnYRa5iZUjKG9wK0QIE5?si=Dppo0HlvSDaVufB36agPlw&utm_source=copy-link&dl_branch=1 In short, "freak!" is an offbeat anthem of total self-acceptance and is a welcome sight to see in my Spotify library. It came two long months after "never / nowhere", the last Saint Slumber single. "I don't know w...
