The Big Sleep releasing new album Tuesday, playing Knitting Factory Thursday (2/2)

Last month, we had the opportunity to check out Brooklyn-based indie band The Big Sleep film footage for a new music video at The Fort in anticipation of their upcoming album Nature Experiments. The album is their first release since 2008's Sleep Forever, and from what I heard them play that night, Nature Experiments is going to be a really exciting record. As a collaboration between Frenchkiss Records and Goodnight Records (Goodnight is handling the vinyl release), you can preorder the album from iTunes for its release on Tuesday (1/31) and the vinyl release over here. The vinyl won't be released until February 14, but comes in both single and deluxe versions.

To celebrate the album's release, The Big Sleep will be performing a hometown show at the Knitting Factory on Thursday (2/2), for which some tickets are still available. Be sure to pick up a pair and see the band perform some new songs, and hopefully they still have "Murder" in their repertoire. Check out the tracklist for Nature Experiments, a video for the album's awesome first single "Ace," and the Big Sleep's upcoming shows below...
