DREAM AWAKE Release New Video ‘Heavy Heart’


Rising melodic metalcore crew DREAM AWAKE release their sophomore EP ‘Don’t
Hold Your Breath’, on Friday 18th August. Before then, the hotly-tipped
quintet have set loose their new video single ‘Heavy Heart’ –

 

Pulling from the layered intensity of In Hearts Wake, and the heaviness and
atmospherics of The Amity Affliction and Northlane, Dream Awake take from
their predecessors and have refined their own compelling sound that is
fierce, dynamic, forceful, and utterly engaging.

Formed in 2014 and hailing from Belfast, the band wanted to create a sound
that brought together the heavy and technical qualities of the genre, but
also offered the listener something fresh that they could more tangibly feel
and access. After reshaping their initial set and drafting in additional
members, Dream Awake have more than fulfilled their early manifesto. The
melodic metalcorers dropped their debut single, Burdens, at the end of 2014,
before going on to release their first EP, Pathfinder. The release helped
the band to pick up press recognition, key support slots and prominent
festival appearances. To date, Dream Awake have shared stages with Napoleon
and Carcer City, as well as playing prestigious festivals such as Download
and Sunflowerfest.

For their upcoming EP, Dream Awake went to work with highly regarded
producer, Daniel Kerr of Avenue Studios (Our Hollow Our Home, Create To
Inspire, Shields). The release, entitled “Don’t Hold Your Breath”, features
five engrossing cuts and a guest appearance from Wes Thompson/Napoleon. The
record is jam packed with juggernaut guitars, dual-attacking vocals and
blast-beat rhythms that will pummel the listener into submission from the
get-go. The band recently wooed audiences at this year’s Download Festival,
and now Dream Awake are poised to transcend from the underground. Be sure to
hit up the band’s social sites for further dates and tour announcements.
