TCOSS was birthed from the belly of Slaughter House Studios with a 7 track demo, 'Burrow in the Brain Owl', followed by 'The Children of Lions and Garudas' in 2008.

They fully tracked their next album before the heartbreaking death of Lisa Hunte. ‘Circuit Crooks’, released 2012, features Lisa on drums/piano/organ/voice. Dedicated in her memory, "You will always be our Bad News Betty”. Joel added new force as the pulse of 'She Dreamed a Drought', released 2014.

And now, ‘Softened Head’! Twenty Centuries of Stony Sleep released their new EP to a sold-out crowd at the historic King Eddy on October 19th, 2018. It was recorded with the infamous Lorrie Matheson at Arch Audio. TCOSS invited Jamie (of The Jamies) to lay guest vocals in the studio. The guys fell in love (and let’s be honest, missed the estrogen), and... Jamie joined the band! Come see what sultry female vocals add to TCOSS’ medieval junk harmonies.

“TCOSS feels like the Second Coming of nineties indie rock. You can imagine these guys spending late nights listening to Surfer Rosa, Slanted and Enchanted, and The Lonesome Crowded West” - IMVERYAPE

“Interesting and noisy group, somewhere between Modest Mouse and Guided by Voices, with hints of Sebadoh” - CKXU 88.3FM

TCOSS is Alexi Davis (vocals, guitar), Dwight Davis (bass, vocals), Graham Daniel (vocals, guitar), Joel Briggs (drums), and Jamie Gould (vocals, percussion).
