On the 18th of December we are back in Paris for a show with Rothko and à moi at La Java.
The three EPs are all now available through iTunes, emusic, amazon, etc. 'Clocks and clones' EP is now available to buy on 5 track CD in a limited edition Pika Pika cover through our website at http://www.sleepingyears.com/shop.html or at Fnac, Forum des Halles or Bastille, Paris.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our recent French shows. We had such a good time at Toulouse, Nevers and Ivry Sur Seine.
Whilst we were there, the website Le Cargo filmed a video of Dale and Michelle playing 3 songs on the terrace of a 7th floor flat in the north of Paris. This will be uploaded to their site soon (keep watching our myspace page for details) but in the meantime you can see photos of the making of the video in our photo section at http://www.myspace.com/thesleepingyears
