Pop-Punk & Pizza #93: Jake Marquis of Sleep On It

Chicago’s Sleep On It was about 10 dates into their, “Pride & Disaster Tour”, when the whole country began locking down because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Guitarist and vocalist, Jake Marquis, explains what that was like for the band at the time and also what they’ve been up to since the lockdown began in mid-March. I’ve always thought Jake was a genuinely cool guy and he proves that in our conversation. We touch on lighter topics as well including movies, fitness, food and of course, music. Jake also explains what the writing and recording process was like for their most recent album, “Pride & Disaster.” By the way, Sleep On It’s lead vocalist, Zech Pluister, chimes in on the conversation a little too!

Sleep On It’s latest single, “Stay At Home”. They will be donating money from streaming to The World Health Organization.
