Biography

Astoria, New York NY, United States (2008 – present)

SleepCrime fuses potent melodies with downtuned riffs inspired by classic heavy metal and the ramshackle spirit of grungy, hard-driving rock. The band formed in Astoria, New York at the end of 2008. Michele Lombardo (vocals & guitar) and Lauren O’Reilly (drums) have been writing music together since junior high, most recently in the all-girl punk/metal trio Bettie After Midnight. Andy Marino (guitar) and Matt Lambert (bass) first collaborated in the deeply unsettling hardcore band Sayonara.

SleepCrime’s debut album Everything Secret Degenerates is the nine-song result of more than a year’s worth of recording in such exotic locales as Brooklyn’s Savaria Studios, the living room of an upstate ski lodge, and Lauren’s bedroom, where she functioned as the sole engineer and arbiter of bad takes. The album’s title is taken from a declassified FBI file documenting the use of murderers as informants, a policy that informed the band’s self-taught DIY digital recording process in ways too disturbing to address here.

SleepCrime spent 2009 honing its live act in the far-flung dives of the northeastern United States. Currently, the band is writing songs, booking shows, and applying its DIY ethos to creating unique hand-made merchandise, from shirts and panties to lovingly crafted pint glasses.
