    "Miasmal Smoke + The Yellow Bellied Freaks" starts its marching build with echoing drums and an organ bleeding out a nervous buzz. Epic and lonely, it's the score for the flickering light of a glowing soul that closes the door to Wintersleep's third album, Welcome to the Night Sky.
    Like its final song, the album built up gradually over the past two years. From a mass of ghostly melodies, half-finished lyrics and nervesplicing drum beats, it has shaped into the band's finest collection to date.

    Following the release of their 2005 self-titled sophomore album, Wintersleep spent months on the road touring through Canada, America and Europe. Upon return to their native Halifax, the band enlisted the ear of veteran producer Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian and Super Furry Animals), and hid themselves in studio for April and May of 2007. It was during this time that the ten tracks of Welcome... grew into their final stunning form.

    Each song in its own way points to the fact that sometimes looking too hard reveals things best left unseen. But still, hope grows beneath these sable clouds and distant stars, and a light that looms beyond them all. Until then, welcome to the night sky...

    "Ambitious and remarkably accessible. Not since Eric's Trip has a Canadian band managed to so successfully combine music that's both head-smashingly heavy and heart-achingly delicate."
    -FFWD, Calgary

    "The band blows the pants off crowds time and time again. ... one of the most unique sounds to ever come out of the Maritimes... this band will take the country by storm."
    -Chart Magazine
