Sleep Issue New Album Update… in Morse Code

0

Having already all but explicitly stated that they’re in the studio making a new album, Sleep have now released the following update via their official website:

.. -. .. – .. .- .-.. .. –.. . / -. . .– / – .-. .- -. … — .. … … .. — -. / ..— —– .—- –… / -.-. . / … .-.. . . .–. / -. . .- .-. .. -. –. / -.-. — — .–. .-.. . – .. — -. / — ..-. / -. . .– / .- .-.. -… ..- — / . -. –. .. -. . . .-. .. -. –. / .- -.-. -.-. — — .–. .-.. .. -.-. . —… / -. — .- …. / .-.. .- -. -.. .. … / .-.. — -.-. .- – .. — -. —… / …– –… .-.-.- —.. —– ….- ….- / -. –..– / .—- ..— ..— .-.-.- ..— –… .—- .—- / .– / .-. . .-.. . .- … . / -.. .- – . —… / ..- -. -.. . – . .-. — .. -. . -.. / .-. . -.-. — .-. -.. / .-.. .- -… . .-.. —… / ..- -. -.. . – . .-. — .. -. . -..

This helpful morse code translation site tells me this is what all those dots and dashes actually mean:

INITIALIZE NEW TRANSMISSION 2017 CE SLEEP NEARING COMPLETION OF NEW ALBUM ENGINEERING ACCOMPLICE: NOAH LANDIS LOCATION: 37.8044 N, 122.2711 W RELEASE DATE: UNDETERMINED RECORD LABEL: UNDETERMINED

Noah Landis, of course, is the keyboardist for Neurosis. The coordinates, meanwhile, are for a crosswalk right beside a Rite Aid in Oakland, CA, but I think it’s safe to assume that’s some kind of error on my or Google’s part and they’re actually in a studio someplace nearby. But who knows, maybe these dudes are baked enough that recording a new album in the middle of the street actually seemed like a good idea. I mean, they decided to release this update in morse code for some reason, so there’s no way they’re sober.

More news as we get it.

Thanks: A fucking dick
