The Black Sleep
The Terror Drug That Wakes the Dead!
Named after the 1956 cult movie classic, The Black Sleep started taking form in spring 2011. Sarah Deathriage and Mouse Kuhtier musical partners in crime wanted to try something different. After one drunken night they had an idea, “What if we played with a stand-up bass?” and so they started the hunt for a stand-up bass player, only to unwittingly respond to an add posted by former friend/band mate, El Chuy. Even though El Chuy had a brief stint in DeSade years ago, it was truly fate and the first writing sessions of The Black Sleep had this amazing chemistry. The trio however were not so fortunate with drummers and after a few months of trying out people, it was Dubs that was the natural fit. In less than 30 days, these veteran musicians rehearsed, rewrote, got tight and became something completely new. Donned “Cow-Punk-Noir” by a regular fan. Immediately, The Black Sleep began working hard to be seen all over the Phoenix area while simultaneously recording their debut EP “Zombie Box” released December 16, 2011 The Black Sleep plan to continue evolving, writing, playing shows and pushing the envelope and carving their own sound into the music wall.
