Sleepless is a new print and online zine, a tape label, and distro for underground heavy, psychedelic, hardcore, and experimental bands throughout the Rust Belt region.

We hope to cover independent underground heavy music from Buffalo to Chicago, Pittsburgh to Louisville, and everywhere in between with band interviews, show and album reviews, photos, and other exclusive content-but in order to do that, we need some help.

Issue #0 was released in Dec. 2011 and is making its way across the region, but as a collaborative DIY project we rely on donations and cheap ads to cover the cost of printing and distribution.  In order for this project to exist it requires collaborative effort, and that's something we think is really cool.

Please consider making a small donation to help us get Issue #1 off the ground. You'll get some pretty cool rewards in exchange and you'll help make something happen.  You'll also get recognized on our online space: sleeplesszine.blogspot.com

Thanks,

Sleepless Zine // Dec. 2011
