THE BREAKING PATTERN
THE BREAKING PATTERN
After acquiring a strong local following through earlier music projects, lead singer Derek Hackman joined forces with several prominent musicians from across the Phoenix valley music scene to form The Breaking Pattern. In the Summer of 2015 the band emerged with a series of singles that were immediately received with high praise from fans and critics alike, immediately going on to sell out their first several shows and amassing a large online fan base. Their quick rising popularity caught the attention of legendary producer Cory Spotts (Lydia, BlesstheFall, Greely Estates) where the band went on to record their debut album. With a flair for poetics, the band’s wordy lyrical stylings have carved a passionate, cult-like following from the emo revival and indie pop movements. Coupled with melodic guitars and ambient soundscapes, the band has successfully lived up to its self-described “atmospheric-pop” genre.

SLEEPWAR
SLEEPWAR
Hailing from the desert expanse of Phoenix, Arizona, indie rock band Sleepwar pushes indie rock to another level by combining new wave and synth-pop influence with lyrics speaking to addiction, recovery and the inherent struggles of modern 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 unique sound that is both familiar and completely original. Fans of the five-piece rock outfit have likened their music to that of Tame Impala, the Killers, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and Local Natives.

Sleepwar’s self-released initial EP, When We Were, due for an early 2018 release, was recorded, mixed, and produced by Cory Spotts (Job For A Cowboy, The Maine, Bless the Fall, Greeley Estates) at BLUElight Audio Media in Phoenix, AZ.

Sleepwar was formed in 2015 when seasoned musician Roger Willis (Something Left To Learn, Namesake, Goodbye Tomorrow) sought a new project focused on songwriting and collaborated with aspiring 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 and drug abuse 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 alcohol and drug addiction. While the founding members of Willis, Woodbridge and Allen would remain constant, the band’s evolution from garage to indie rock new wave brought to the lineup several talented musicians, eventually finding balance with current drummer Brendan McGuinness and guitarist Mark Pfister.
