The Dreaming

A heart of metal, a soul of darkwave and a punk-rock attitude, The Dreaming is a mix of all these stirred with a passion that creates product that is truly "Etched in Blood". It is more than an album title. It is a mantra. A commitment. A covenant with each other and their fans. It describes everything that went into finding the perfect line-up to produce the best sound of its kind. The result would be the album they believed in to the point of even releasing it on their own terms.

A heart of metal, a soul of darkwave and a punk-rock attitude, The Dreaming is a mix of all these stirred with a passion that creates product that is truly "Etched in Blood". It is more than an album title. It is a mantra. A commitment. A covenant with each other and their fans. It describes everything that went into finding the perfect line-up to produce the best sound of its kind. The result would be the album they believed in to the point of even releasing it on their own terms.

This band emerged from L.A. with an underground following that had them debuting at Number One on Downloadpunk.com where they remained for two months. They've consistently invaded Myspace's "Top 10 unsigned Metal/Punk/New Wave" charts. They were a staple at such legends as The Whisky a Go-Go and The Roxy. In 2007 they rocked the Hot Topic stage at Warped Tour.

After holding up the launch of the album due to the courtship of various indie labels, The Dreaming made a commitment to stay true to themselves and their music and went completely DIY, creating Dream Corpse Records. Produced by Kent Hertz (Godsmack, The Pink Spiders), "Etched in Blood" is a masterpiece of these five musicians' talents. Christopher Hall, former frontman of platinum-selling artist Stabbing Westward, brings vocals that range from passionate whispers to heart-wrenching explosions as the guitars of Jinxx and Carlton Bost shred catchy blends of ferocity and merciless passion which are tied together with the bass of Brent Ashley and drums of Johnny Haro culminating with epic and melodic edge, pummeling the listener with unbridled aggression.

When these tracks are performed live, the five completely separate and unique energies multiply a hundred-fold to give each song a life all its own and has the crowd moving non-stop from beginning to end. Until the album's release this past January, people east of the Rockies had not experienced the dynamic that is The Dreaming. However, again the band met the challenge of going it alone to get the record on tour. Teaming up with the Massachusetts promoter, Locobazooka, they set out on a grueling three-month trek to share the thing that means the most to them in places as obscure as Maplewood, MN and Cookesville, TN to rock & roll meccas like Asbury Park, NJ and Chicago, IL. At every stop they left new fans in their wake.

Back home in L.A., The Dreaming signed with DEEP Distribution/BCD Music Group to get Etched in Blood into major retailers, which included a strong push from Hot Topic. The same day the disc hit stores, Sticks & Stones was selected at "Spotlight Song of The Week on Reverbnation where the band flew to #180 out of over twenty-thousand bands in the "rock" genre in a little over two months. Moving on the tenacity and commitment of fans for promotion and their collective drive to succeed, The Dreaming stands at the threshold of a new age of the music industry unwilling to compromise not only working outside the box but leaving the box in the nearest dumpster. At every step along the way, The Dreaming adds another page to the legend that is "Etched in Blood".' « hide
