Indie rock band Sunsleeper have announced their sophomore album While You Can, due for release on October 7 via Rude Records.
The upcoming album, recorded and produced by Brett Romnes (Oso Oso, Hot Mulligan) and mastered by Will Putney (Counterparts, Knocked Loose), explores the darkness of anxious unfulfillment, substance abuse, and the trials of being a band in the era of constant comparisons and chart data.
“The title of the record is pulled from a lyric on the record; ‘Feel what you can while you can,’” explains vocalist Jeffrey Mudgett. “It’s a reminder to be present and enjoy the vastness of existence while you can. Life is fleeting, and if you’re always looking forward or backward, you’ll miss the now.”

Alongside the announcement, Sunsleeper has shared new single “Stay Home” with a new music video that can be watched below. On the track, Mudgett explains, “I’ve always struggled with living in the present moment. I often find myself either romanticizing the past or living for what the future could bring. This can be a detriment to those closest to me.”
He continues, “This song chronicles the ebb and flow of being caught up with future minded thinking, and the realization that everything I need is in the present moment. The song was inspired by my wife Megan who just so happens to be the music video director, DP and editor.”
