Sleeping at Last is an emo/alternative rock band that was originally formed in 1998 in Wheaton, Illinois. Members of the band are lead singer, guitarist, and pianist Ryan O'Neal, bassist and keys Dan Perdue, and drummer Chad O'Neal. The group built a significant local following and opened for bands such as The Appleseed Cast and Switchfoot, attracting the attention of Billy Corgan, who got them signed to Interscope Records in 2002. Their major label debut, Ghosts, followed in 2003. National touring ensued, first opening for Zwan, then for Yellowcard, Something Corporate, The Format, and Bleu. They received airplay on Fuse TV and their song "Quicksand" was featured in the third season of Grey's Anatomy. Their third full-length, Keep No Score, was released independently. On November 29, 2008, it was announced that Chad O'Neal would be moving on to pursue other interests.
