SLEEP TOKEN will release the debut album ‘Sundowning’ on November 21st, via Spinefarm Records.
The second single “The Offering” is available digitally now – watch and listen to it HERE!
An exploration of intimacy… ritual… worship… how connecting with someone on a certain level inspires a sense of deeper, spiritual significance. In Sundowning, ‘The Offering’ is the moment the album dips below the horizon and everything becomes dark.
Two weeks ago, starting with ‘The Night Does Not Belong To God’, the opening track on forthcoming album Sundowning, Sleep Token began releasing the singles, in sequence, at sundown (GMT). ‘The Night…’ arrived on summer solstice when the sun was highest in the sky in London, and now, as it descends, the second single and second album track, ‘The Offering’, has been issued.

‘SUNDOWNING’ THE ALBUM
SUNDOWNING: “Sundowning, or sundown syndrome, is a neurological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with delirium or some form of dementia. The term ‘sundowning’ was coined due to the timing of the patient’s confusion. For patients with sundowning syndrome, a multitude of behavioural problems begin to occur in the evening or while the sun is setting…”
