From the desert of Phoenix, Arizona, SLEEPWAR combines new wave and synth-pop influence, with lyrics speaking to addiction, recovery, and the struggles of life.
Sleepwar is led by Roger Willis (vocals) with Tim Woodbridge(producer, keys), James Allen (bass), Mark Pfister (guitar), and Brendan McGuinness (drums).
Utilizing lush synthesizer soundscapes, Sleepwar produces a sound that is both familiar yet unique. Fans of the five-piece rock outfit have likened their music to that of Tame Impala, the Killers, Imagine Dragons, and Local Natives.
Sleepwar was formed in 2016 when seasoned musician Roger Willis (Something Left To Learn, Goodbye Tomorrow) sought a new project focused on songwriting and collaborated with producer Tim Woodbridge, who had been composing with vocal placement in mind. Willis shared their rudimentary recordings to longtime friend James Allen, who immediately loved the new sound.
Allen joined Sleepwar as bassist and co-lyricist, where his former struggles with addiction became the foundation for early songs like “The Jaywalker.” Though Allen’s words drew from his personal demons, the lyrics would resonate with Willis and Woodbridge who had experienced both personal and familial addiction. While the founding members of Willis, Woodbridge and Allen would remain constant, the band’s evolution brought to the lineup drummer Brendan McGuinness and guitarist Mark Pfister.
