Sleeper Agent today announced live U.S. dates this spring supporting fun. The run of dates will kick off on February 29th at Higher Ground in Burlington, VT and wrap up in Little Rock, AR on March 11th at Juanita's. Shortly after, the band will hit the road supporting Ben Kweller through April. 
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:

Recently deemed "Buzzworthy" by MTV and "Rookies of The Year" by Rolling Stone, Sleeper Agent is Tony "Tutone" Smith (guitar/vocals), Alex "Kidd" Kandel (vocals), Justin "Keyser" Wilson (drums), Lee "Grizzlee" Williams (bass) Scott "Saga" Gardner (keyboard) and Josh "Junior" Martin (guitars).

They played hard and I took close to a hundred pictures before the magic moment presented itself. The 3yearold wanted to hang on the monkey bars, something usually preferred by her older sister. She looked so cute up there swinging and smiling that I couldn't resist. I called over the 5yearold and had her jump up on the bar next to her sister. By the time I snapped the picture the little one had been hanging around for about 3 minutes too long and her fingers were starting to slip. designer wedding dress designer wedding dress Good mommy blogger that I am cheap brides dresses cheap brides dresses , white prom dresses white prom dresses it didn't exactly keep me from snapping a few last shots.
