Waking the Sleeper Signs Record Deal with – Rock Avenue Records USA (Los Angeles, Ca.)
Waking the Sleeper is extremely excited to be working with Rock Avenue Records USA. The label is very pleased to have signed this Wichita, Kansas based female fronted metal band as well.
The band currently consists of Regina “Raven” Turney (Lead Vocals/Keyboard), Shon “Gunnie” Gunderson (Keyboard/Backing Vocals), Juni Iwasaki (Lead Guitar), and Ryan Stebb (Bass). Raven (formerly of Apparition) and Gunnie formed the band in the summer of 2016 and began seeking out their perfect lineup. The next two members joined in December, lead guitarist Juni Iwasaki (formerly of Without Sacrifice) and Ryan Stebb (formerly of Librium). They are in the process of finalizing their drummer. (The Drummer is to be announced with the album release.)
With shows scheduled throughout the summer and into fall, Waking the Sleeper is looking forward to hitting the road, seeing their fans, and making new ones along the way. Raven and Gunnie’s idea was to form a powerhouse of metal that is unique in the ability to utilize all spectrums of metal, that includes Raven’s vision of not only taking the music to a new level, but also implementing a full live production with dancers and various themes.
Waking the Sleeper has been taking the world by storm, and has already performed alongside national artists such as Dope, Combichrist, September Mourning, Davey Suicide, Drowning Pool, and more! In addition, they played at the 2017 Rocklahoma alongside national acts such as Def Leppard, Soundgarden, The Offspring, The Cult, Jackyl, and Slaughter.
Waking the Sleeper’s debut album ‘The 7 Deadly Sins’ is being released in two separate parts. Part 1 was released just over a year ago on April 1st, 2017 and currently is being re-mixed for the new release. There will be special packaging done for the (NEW) two part album. The band is in the studio now making the adjustments and the release of the (NEW) Part one is due in approximately 60 days. (Keep posted for the initial announcement on Metal Babe Mayhem.) Their first single, “Changes In Me,” hit number one on Rock Rage Radio and other charts in the USA for over a month and continues to receive rave reviews.
