Team Sleep reunites members of Deftones, Death Grips for new album

Remember Team Sleep? That was the short-lived, experimental rock project with singer Chino Moreno (Deftones) and drummer Zach Hill (Death Grips).

The Sacramento supergroup put out its self-titled debut in 2005 and then, after lots of rumors, never returned.

Well, it was just a hibernation. The band is back together to record an in-studio performance at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY. The extra good news for fans: said in-studio performance will be in front of a live audience.

You can pre-order the album and order tons of swag through this PledgeMusic page, as well as preview a couple new songs. Oh, and buy a ticket to that super intimate recording session for $500.

A message from the band:

Please join us as we create our next record in Woodstock, New York. We’ll gather at Applehead studios, near the base of the Catskill mountains to eat, write, play and record. For a long time, business people, logistics, careers, adulthood, families and the House Republicans have thwarted us, but we’ve continued to make music. At the same time, the creative process has become increasingly fragmented and dehumanized. With that in mind, we’re very excited to get together with our dear friends, hang out, play music and have a unique experience in a beautiful place. We’d like you to be there, too. Your participation will be essential to the independent creation and release of the live performance and our forthcoming studio record; we look forward to seeing you.
