"Under The Moment" was produced by Mike Green (All Time Low, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Set It Off). Speaking to the track, Zech Pluister said, "At its core, the song is a cry for help. I spent a lot of the last year struggling with my depression and anxiety, and without even realizing it I had fallen deeper than I really even noticed into those things," he said. 'Take my hand pull me again' is a plea to anyone listening. The song also really tells the story of the struggle between the denial of those mental health issues, saying you're fine, lying to loved ones to cover for yourself; and asking those same people for help from under the crushing weight of each day."
Pride & Disaster is the follow-up to 2017's Overexposed, and features additional production by Kyle Black (State Champs, Pierce the Veil, All Time Low). Since the release of Overexposed, the Chicago four-piece has toured with the likes of State Champs, Waterparks, With Confidence, Broadside, and This Wild Life, and made appearances at a number of festivals including Riot Fest, Slam Dunk, and the Vans Warped Tour. Following Overexposed, Sleep On It was named one of Kerrang!'s ' Hottest Bands of 2018', and was featured on the 2018 Warped Tour Compilation album.
With Pride & Disaster, Sleep On It harnesses the strenght and vulnerability of the human spirit. Over the course of ten songs, they make a case for enjoying life, even when times are tough, and never shying away from your truth.
"One of the big things we focused on when making this record was not only writing sad songs," Pluister says. "Going along with the theme of growth, we wanted to show that there is more to life than just being sad. As hard as life is, there are still good days, and we really wanted that thought to be present in this record. It doesn't seem fair to us to only portray the hard times."
The positivity found throughout Pride & Disaster adds a silver lining to an album that is also unafraid to address the problem that many, including the band, face with mental health.
"We're trying to be better every day," says guitarist TJ Horansky. "And that's what a lot of our songs are about. We want to be better people. We want to improve ourselves, and we want to help the people around us improve as well."
Sleep On It is comprised of Zech Pluister (vocals), TJ Horansky (guitar/vocals), Jake Marquis (guitar/vocals), and Luka Fischman (drums).
