Album Notes
When you think about cities renowned for their rich musical history, Fargo, North Dakota is probably the last place that would come to mind. The sprawling midwest metro area, located in the middle of nowhere, has produced few noteworthy musical acts. The town does, however, possess a bustling, tight-knit underground music scene, where bands are able to craft their own sound away from the trends and hipper-than-thou attitudes that often permeate larger cities. Out of this small, down-to-earth community has come Sleeping in Gethsemane, a monstrous three-piece poised to put Fargo on the map.

Their debut album, The Great White North, features nine tracks of masterfully played post-rock that is beautiful yet heavy, crushing yet delicate. Likely influenced by their geographical surroundings, one could hardly ask for a more fitting soundtrack to the barren, rural North Dakota landscape. When listening to songs like “Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc” or “They Are All Perfect,” it’s not difficult to envision yourself standing in the middle of the windswept, snow-blown prairies of the Great Plains. Comparisons to bands like Russian Circles and Explosions In The Sky are almost inevitable when discussing Sleeping in Gethsemane, but such name-dropping is doing the band a disservice. Sleeping in Gethsemane are their own band doing their own thing, and while they’re impressive enough on record, they’re at their best live. The dynamic interplay between guitarist Brandon LaPlante and bassist Brandon Schiwal is humbling to witness as the pair navigate their way through mind-bendingly intricate compositions, backed up by Heilman’s impeccably tight and impossibly powerful drumming from behind the kit. The band’s unique chemistry is awe-inspiring, and it’d be foolish to pass up an opportunity to see them destroy the stage.

Highly recommend this album! For fans of old Mars Volta mixed with strait up rock.
