What’s up Insomniacs!


Sure, we’re passionate about music, mixing up heavy rock breakdowns with killer anthems, and always pushing ourselves to do better; but we’re the most passionate about encouraging people. We believe that no one should walk through this life alone, especially in their darkest hours. If you are a fellow insomniac going through a tough spot in life, struggling with some hardcore insomnia, we are here for you. Whether it’s through listening to our music, hanging with us at one of our concerts, or you just wanna send us a tweet in the middle of the night, we want you to know we are in this together, and WE ARE NOT ALONE.



by Pray for Sleep

We are insomniacs. Though we find ourselves on different journeys and from different places, we are united by our fight against a darkness that aims to make us slaves to sadness. When we feel lost on our own, music gives us permission to scream back. The bittersweet memories remind us that there is always good beneath the evil. And, even though the marks from our nails on walls may not be gone tomorrow, there is still hope . . . Because in this hardcore insomnia, WE ARE NOT ALONE.

News and Press

Check out our Rock on the Range Press Release!

Passion, dedication, killer riffs and heavy breakdowns earned Pray For Sleep a spot at this year’s Rock On The Range festival alongside bands such as We Came As Romans and Anti-Flag. Choosing to perform at ROTR rather than attend graduation, Pray For Sleep have proven they’re here to rock. Their encouraging anthems and catchy choruses combined with a “take-on-the-world” mentality fuels their message: We are not alone. Expect big things from these guys as they continue to make a positive effect in our scene. -@whitneyxpaxton
