In 2021, Arms and Sleepers celebrated its 15th anniversary. This year, Mirza Ramic celebrated another milestone: 25 years since he
first arrived to the US as a refugee. Born in Bosnia & Herzegovina and having fled the war-torn country with his mother, Ramic immigrated to the US as a 13-year old and arrived to Tucson, Arizona in July 1996. The family would eventually make it to Boston, Massachusetts where Ramic would go on to meet the other half of Arms and Sleepers (Max Lewis), but the first two years living in the Southwestern US shaped the core of an American immigrant identity. Exactly 25 years later, in July 2021, Ramic sat down to write an album dedicated to the memories of first arriving in the US, far removed from everything he was previously familiar with and at the footsteps of a new life ahead.

That creative effort became Arms and Sleepers’ 13th studio album: former kingdoms, available for preorder now exclusively from SlyVinyl Records. Shipping targeted for June 2022.
