The music world has been abuzz with the name Sleep Theory since its debut earlier this year. And it's no surprise why, with accolades from top publications and industry insiders such as American Songwriter, Billboard, Celebrity Access, Knotfest, and Loudwire. The band has also been making waves on SiriusXM's Octane, and with their impressive success in 2023, Sleep Theory is poised for an even greater 2024.

Since the release of their debut single "Another Way" in January 2023, which quickly gained attention on TikTok with 500k views in just 36 hours, the band has continued their rise to stardom. Their second single, "Gone or Staying," followed soon after, and with the release of "Numb," which you can watch the music video for here, Sleep Theory's success has skyrocketed. These three songs have generated over 25 million streams, and both "Another Way" and "Numb" have claimed the top spot on SiriusXM's Octane Chart. The band's popularity has even earned them a place in SiriusXM/Pandora's Artist Accelerator Program and Next Wave Concert Series this fall. "Numb" has also reached No. 1 on Octane's BigUns chart not once, not twice, but an impressive four times!

Sleep Theory's recent rise to fame may appear to be an overnight success to some, but the truth is that their hard work and dedication to their craft has been years in the making. Despite baseless rumors of being an "industry plant," the band's talent and perseverance are finally being recognized and rewarded.

Moore's passion for music has been a driving force since retiring from the U.S. Army a few years ago. He started Sleep Theory in 2019 as a solo project, blending hard rock, funk, and R&B into his unique sound. With a bit of luck and a chance meeting on Facebook Marketplace, Sleep Theory has since grown into a four-piece band. Their dedication and hard work have paid off with two No. 1 singles and a growing fanbase, allowing them to play to massive crowds.

The band recently wrapped up a successful summer tour with Set It Off and Shinedown and also had the opportunity to share the stage with other notable acts such as I Prevail and Badflower. The band's dedication and hard work have paid off with a growing fanbase, allowing them to play to massive crowds. Fans can expect more exciting news from Sleep Theory soon, as their extensive 2024 touring plans will be announced soon!
