Ones To Watch: Q&A
Armor For Sleep’s upcoming full-length, The Rain Museum, is 17 years in the making. It’s a concept album built around a post-apocalyptic world where weather no longer exists on planet earth and people come to a mysterious museum in the middle of the desert to look back on what life used to be like. Originally planned as the follow up to What to Do When You Are Dead, the album had been shelved due to “bad advice” leading the band in another direction. Fast forward to the global pandemic of 2020, and the events of the real world encouraged Jorgensen to revisit the concept. Concurrently, his marriage of eight years began to fall apart, leaving Jorgensen to further infuse the science-fiction story with elements of his real life. The result is a beautiful and devastating 12 song collection that draws upon the best elements of Armor For Sleep’s catalog while incorporating elevated songwriting and composition. After a fifteen year absence from the studio, The Rain Museum will undoubtedly prove to be well-worth the wait for old and new fans alike. You can preorder The Rain Museum now.
In anticipation of The Rain Museum, Armor For Sleep just wrapped up a tour with Dashboard Confessional and Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness for the “Hello Gone Days” tour. They will also be performing at When We Were Young Fest in October, joining a stacked line-up of influential artists from the scene that Armor For Sleep emerged from.
