mom+pop music's Sleeper Agent today announced live U.S. dates this spring supporting Ben Kweller, kicking off March 20th in Hartford, CT. The Bowling Green, KY natives and Rolling Stone "Band To Watch" will also perform both weekends of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 15th and 22nd.

Released on September 27th,
Sleeper Agent's riotous debut album Celabrasion (Buy Link) quickly garnered immediate features and stellar reviews from the blogosphere straight to the top of the national music media. The band toured nonstop last year and will continue to do the same in 2012.

Sleeper Agent craft hook-laden scuzzy garage-pop rooted in both soul and Southern rock. Citing the musical influence of The Strokes, The Pixies, T-Rex, and Jay Reatard, the band describes their music as akin to "The Ronettes on speed." "We just want people to listen to the music and have fun," says guitarist and vocalist Tony "Tutone" Smith.

Early champions of the album, SPIN Magazine, described the album as, "A dozen deliriously catchy gems... the sound of high fives and Makers Mark spilling from the speakers." Celabrasion was produced by Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, The Whigs) and reflects the easy camaraderie in the band.

In December, the band premiered a new song, "Not Never," produced by Courtney Taylor of The Dandy Warhols in the latest installment of Nike Sportswear's video series, ALWAYS ON, featuring WNBA star Lindsey Harding. Sleeper Agent wrote the song exclusively for the series. Fans can download the free MP3 here:
