Crowd Surfing on NYE w/ 50,000 Of Our Closest Friends

Here's a quick glimpse at what the weekend was like, then we can quickly talk new year's resolutions. (If anyone has crowd surfing footage, will you post it to youtube & put the link on our facebook page? That'd be most baller of you!)

Let us quickly clear up some rumors that are hanging out there (totally our fault, it's probably time to bite the bullet and hire a publicist, again...our fault)

RUMOR #1 - Yes. There is a record deal sitting in our inbox from a label, but we HAVE NOT SIGNED IT.

RUMOR #2 - We are planning the release of new music 1st quarter of 2012, HOWEVER these next songs are actually from the vault. They were recorded during the JAG sessions. (Most have never been heard). Originally we were just going to let them sit in the digital abyss but on a recent road trip we busted them out and soon after decided they should definitely be released from their captivity...

How about we do SS New Year's Resolutions in another blog post later this week! (One of our resolutions is to BLOG, often!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Make it count. -SS-

New Christmas Single for FREE!

It's late! Or early? It all runs together when we get to spend time in the studio. Crafting the new album? Yes. Getting stoked for JAG 2012 Tour? Yes! Playing on New Years Eve 2011 for 500,000 people? YES! We wanted to give everyone a new song to say "THANK YOU" for the past 3 years of AMAZING support! It's a Christmas tune we put together that mashes up Oh Come Emmanuel and Joy to the World, download your copy by clicking the link and then help spread the word via twitter, facebook and email!

We're consistently humbled and amazed by every last one of you that pushes our music. Thank you for believing in us!!!

"I Was Wrong" Official Video

We're so excited to announce the release of our first official music video! I Was Wrong was featured on the WB's hit show, The Vampire Diaries late last year and has been gaining momentum ever since. We can't thank all the Vampire Diaries fans enough, you guys have made so much possible for us, thank you thank you thank you! Please take the time to share the video on Facebook (it's that convenient little button below at the end of this post) and tell all your peeps on Twitter (another convenient little button down there). Without further ado:

We'd like to give a HUGE thanks to our good buddy, Ryan Booth, who shot this video for us. His talent is beyond measure and we're so grateful for him. Make sure to go check out his work HERE. We came up with the concept and shot the video all in one day down in Houston, TX. It was a BLAST! And we only dropped/broke 1 camera while doing it. Look for that video soon. The most impressive thing about this video is that Chris did all his own stunts.

Sleeperstar Goes International

At the tail end of last year, the hit CW show The Vampire Diaries featured one of our songs "I Was Wrong" in a very epic scene between two of the main characters.  Six months and 24,986 downloads later our music is starting to spread exponentially quicker than we had ever previously experienced!  The appreciation for the show and its incredibly loyal fan base has been talked about many times over in our camp.  Thank you all so much for pushing the song and the album, and for doing it in such an amazing way.  Please keep it up!  If you missed the scene and want to check it out, just go to youtube and search the words "sleeperstar vampire."  (We'll be honest, the fact that you can search "our band name" + the word "vampire" kinda makes us happy)

Pre-Production On Sleeperstar's New Album Has Begun!!!

What's tentatively being called "The Light, The Sound, The Fire" is in its beginning phases.  Yes we're talking to labels (they started calling us because you all are pushing our music to your friends!) but REGARDLESS it is safe to say you can expect "tL tS tF" in your hands in 2012!!

Upcoming Tour Dates

We're doing a handfull of shows in the US in April and May.  For details on upcoming dates visit the "Tour" section of our website:

Plans for the "Just Another Ghost" National Tour are under way and the tour is set to begin late August of 2011! Don't worry, the tour dates will be released with plenty of time to get tickets before they sell out!

Big D NYE show!

We had an amazing opportunity to play at the Big D NYE show in Dallas this year! We entered into a contest, which YOU, the fans, voted on and we WON!!  This is the biggest New Years Eve party in Dallas, put on by WFAA Ch 8, American Airlines Center, and Winstar Casino.  It was held in Victory Park, right outside American Airlines center, and 35 thousand people were at the show!! It was craaazzzy!! I couldn't even see where the sea of people ended. On top of that, a portion of the performance was broadcast live to half a million people! For sure one of the craziest, most awesome experiences we've gotten to be a part of.  I had my camera with me to take a few images, I wish I would've gotten more, but my head was really focused on performing and not photographing.  Thanks to WFAA, Winstar Casino, and American Airlines Center for putting on such an amazing event. And thank YOU to everyone who voted to have us on this show, it was amazing and we are humbled that you would vote for us!

Our good buddy, Steven Samuals (GRO's tour manager), was kind enough to help us out that night. So official:

SS Lyrics: "I Was Wrong" (from CW's Vampire Diaries)

Have you purchased your copy of "I Was Wrong" from iTunes or Sleeperstar's online store?! Here are the lyrics:

"I saw you fell asleep while you were reading // The pages on your face you had been weeping

And I saw, what it was // That I had done

Last night we fell apart and broke to pieces // Our love was in the hall all packed in boxes

And I saw, what it was // That I had done... to you // I Was Wrong, I Was Wrong"
