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 Doug Robinson, former singer/guitarist of the band Stillwelle.
They’ve toured with everyone from Taking Back Sunday to Bayside to Senses Fail to Jimmy Eat World. 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. They released four full-length albums on Victory Records between 2006 and 2010 including Questions And Answers, Believe What We Tell You, What It Takes, and The Big Deep as well as Connect Sets: The Sleeping EP.
The Sleeping is Doug Robinson (vocals), Sal Mignano (bass), Joe Zizzo (drums), and Cameron Keym (guitar, keyboard).
