The Skinny: Math metal/mathcore group For Sleeping or Jumping are gearing up to drop their new Ben Weinman co-produced EP, Dead Languages on May 15th. Weiman, mastermind behind the Dillinger Escape Plan, might have helped with production duties, but he also performed some instrumentation on the new effort. Said Weinman of the band: “For Sleeping or Jumping couldn’t be a better band name at a better time in music.” Well Ben, we couldn’t agree more and that’s why we’re super-pleased to offer this stream of the first single “Beardrops”.

The band hails from Boston, Massachusetts and consists of lead vocalist Gio Coviello, guitarists Ryan Leist and Tom Cawley, drummer Taylor Pile and bassist Eric Messii. Dead Languages is their sophomore effort and follow up to the 2010 self-titled debut. This new offering finds the guys experimenting wildly with moods, momentum and melody, multiple times within each song. Let’s call the tunes radical and unpredictable and use “Beardrops” as a perfect example. Now get your stream on and be prepared for the full EP!
