Welcome to Instead of Sleeping's Purevolume!
Instead of Sleeping is a Melodic Indie Rock band from Pittsburgh, PA. Instead of Sleeping has had the opportunity to share the stage with various national acts and tour up and down the East coast on a regular basis. The band First formed in 2008 as an Instrumental outfit and a year later started to experiment with adding vocals. In 2009 The Band released the EP, "Illud Tempus." One year later, in early 2010, Instead of Sleeping Released a self titled full length album. This full length was comprised of darker melodies of the band with a dash of a few bright songs sprinkled into the mix. The band quickly realized after this album that they wanted to switch it up a bit and go into a different direction. Through the years between 2010 and now Instead of Sleeping has went to the workshop and experimented on their own by recording self demos and taking the songs back to the drawing board to bring the best of the best to the table for the album, "The Reds, The Blacks, The Grays."
The Reds, The Blacks, The Grays will be the bands largest stepping stone due to the amount of time and preparation that has been laid out on the line for this EP. This is 2012 and over the years that Instead of Sleeping has had to grow and share experiences, it is now time for the new album. The time for this album is vastly approaching, keep your ears and eyes open on Sep 21st for the Digital Release of, "The Reds, The Blacks, The Grays."
