Armor for Sleep is an American band from Maplewood and Teaneck, New Jersey. Lead singer Ben Jorgensen recorded the first ever Armor for Sleep songs in exchange for $100 at a nearby recording studio, playing all the instruments by himself, after leaving the band Random Task, in which he played drums. The original line up of Armor For Sleep included two of Ben's high school friends AJ Resnick and Paul Abrahamian. Later on Ben and Anthony fired AJ and Paul, and asked Nash Breen, drummer of Prevent Falls, to join Armor for Sleep. Nash quit Prevent Falls and asked his cousin, P.J.
