SLEEP MILLENNIUM is the brain-child of award-winning artist/songwriter turned DIY film-maker, Josh Schroeder (guitars, keys, lead vocals). He is joined by the talents of, Jarred Venti (bass, keys, vocals), Ronan Baker (guitar, keys, vocals) and David Aizuss (drums). The group carries the sonic torch of arena-acts from a bygone era as they explore the present day musical landscapes for a sound that is uniquely their own - with a mind bending multi-media live stage show.
In May of 2018, Sleep Millennium released their epic full-length concept album "Let Us Begin The Future," an album 5 years in the making on their own Granfalloon Records. The band subsequently partnered with the acclaimed micro brewery Vagabond Brewing Co. to produce the "Blood Moon Wit Bier" a blood orange-infused Belgian style Wit that is distributed via the brewery. Coinciding with the release of the album and beer, the Summer of 2018 marked the first annual Blood Moon Music Festival presented by Sleep Millennium, featuring the band and a host of other talent from the Pacific Northwest. Sleep Millennium proudly presented the festival as "Oregon's Artists First, Artist Curated, Artist Run Independent Music Festival."
"Evoking the mind expanding themes of surrealism and the feeling of child-like discovery, The Sleep Millennium have cobbled together the most impressive DIY video ever for The Sky Is Zero." - Shayen De Silva, Happy Mag
