|The Sleeping formed in 2003 on Long Island. The band was founded by Cameron Keym, Sal Mignano, and Joe Zizzo from the remains of metalcore outfit Skycamefalling. After auditioning twenty-two potential vocalists, they came across Douglas Robinson, former singer/guitarist of the band Stillwelle.
Their live performances are known for their emotive, high-energy and tight-knit sound. They’ve toured with everyone from Jimmy Eat World to Taking Back Sunday to Bayside to ALEXISONFIRE. Their music has been featured in video games including Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, Madden NFL 07, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Guitar Hero: World Tour, and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.
The band made their debut on One Day Savior Recordings with Believe What We Tell You which led them to a record deal with renowned indie label Victory Records for three full-length albums between 2006 and 2010 including Questions And Answers, What It Takes, and The Big Deep.
The Sleeping is Douglas Robinson (vocals), Cameron Keym (guitar, keyboard), Sal Mignano (bass), and Joe Zizzo (drums).
