I'm not sure what kind of "post" Armor for Sleep
occupies. Is it post-hardcore, post-emo, post-screamo, or post-emo/hardcore/screamo? Whatever. The truth is, since its 2003 debut, Dream to Make Believe
, this quad from New Jersey has extended its reach far beyond simple categorization and has even been the featured subject of a DVD (A Comprehensive Guide to Touring
). Incidentally, we can assume that their bones have been made based on fan support which is of the ever-increasing type. So here they are, on the road again, with their next full-length effort, What to Do When You're Dead
, promised for late February on Equal Vision Records. Reflective, youthful, energetic; however you want to peg it, Armor for Sleep knows how to deliver.
Armor for Sleep performs with Boys Night Out, Chiodos, and Action Reaction at 7 p.m. Sunday, February 5, at the Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $12. Call 954-564-1047.
