European juggernauts Dreamshade have returned with a polished sound and the drive to make a name for themselves in the active rock scene. Since their inception in 2006, the quintet have steadily released new music that has allowed them to tour the world. The band released their first EP, To the Edge of Reality, in 2008. The EP quickly gained much well-deserved attention, and landed the band on the roster of some of the most popular European music festivals, such as Metal Camp Open Air, Summer Breeze Open Air, and Metalfest.
Dreamshade’s constant touring soon captured the attention of Spinefarm Records/Universal Music, who signed them in 2010. In 2011, the band went on to release their debut full-length, What Silence Hides. As they toured heavily on the new record, they also released music videos for “Wide Awake,” “Eternal,” and “Miles Away”. The new record fueled their ever-hectic touring schedule, which went on to include the Finnish Metal Expo, Germany’s Rock Hard Festival, the Czech Republic’s Basinfirefest, and Bulgaria’s Kavarna Rock Fest.
In Fall of 2012, Dreamshade was finishing up their second album and touring Switzerland on their new singles. Their second full-length, The Gift of Life, produced by the band along with Jacob Hansen, was released in January 2013. After this release, the band went on to tour the US, Europe, and Asia, all the while maintaining their European fanbase that brought them to the forefront of the genre.
Dreamshade has returned with a brand new record, Vibrant. In what is proposed to be their seminal work, the band reflects upon relationships of all kinds. The band recognizes the effects that familial relationships, romantic relationships, and long-lasting friendships have upon one’s life. Recognizing that shifts in those relationships can either strengthen or weaken a person, the new record is a call to learn and grow from inevitable change.
Vibrant will be released via Artery Recordings on December 9th of this year.
