Sleeper Agent will hit the road with Cage the Elephant and Manchester Orchestra beginning May 27th.

Sleeper Agent band will be giving audiences a taste of what's to come when they release their debut album, Celabrasion, on mom + pop music this August.

Not only do they cite such musical artists as Jay Reatard, The Strokes, Pixies, T-Rex, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin as influences, they are also influenced by horror and sci-fi flicks, as well as stand-up comedians. "We just want people to listen to the music and have fun," says Smith. "It's pretty obvious that's what we want when you listen to the album." In regards to their song "Get It Daddy," My Old Kentucky Blog today said "this raggedy rouser chugs out of the garage firing on all cylinders, crazy legs and rubberneckin like so much foam over the rim, up in your grill with a level of unmitigated joy rarely heard since Jack and Meg got so serious... Keep your good eye on these kids, and good luck getting' this one removed from the old cranium."

Produced by Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, The Whigs) and recorded last July at Nashville's Tragedy/Tragedy Studios, Celabrasion reflects the easy camaraderie in this band. "We've all been involved in the Bowling Green music scene for years," Smith says. "As our other bands wound down, Justin and I decided to form another band in which we'd both sing. After a mutiny occurred with that line-up, we asked Alex to join as the new vocalist, allowing Justin to get back to playing drums. After several different musicians sat in for certain shows, we recruited Lee Scott and Josh Martin to fill out the rest of the missing parts."
