Dream On Dreamer Disband

2020-02-11 by SteakByrnes | 30 Comments
Australian post hardcore/metalcore band Dream On Dreamer announced that they are disbanding after 11 years as a band. They released a statement on the band's Instagram page as follows:

The spirit of this band has always been to create and perform music whole heartedly with all of our attention and passion. After 11 years it seems we are at a cross road where other areas of our personal lives require that care and attention to be focused. So it is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the end of the era that has been Dream on Dreamer.

We will never take for granted the incredibly rare gift that we have been blessed with, the experiences we have gained through music, the connections we have made with people and the community we have been so lucky to create and be apart of. This band has shaped us all personally in such a strong way. For all of this we feel greatly indebted to our fans.

We are so proud of the music we have created. We feel so fortunate to have such a supportive fanbase and hope you can continue to support us as we make this transition in our lives. ❤️ DOD


The band is releasing a final album and going on a farewell tour in April and May across Australia before they go their separate ways. The tour dates are:

02/04 Cairns - Edgehill Tavern
03/04 Townsville - Dalrymple Hotel
04/04 Gladstone - Harvey RD Tavern
09/04 Ipswich - Racehorse Hotel
11/04 Brisbane - Crow Bar
16/04 Kellyville Ridge - The Ettamogah
17/04 Newcastle - Small Ballroom

01/05 Adelaide - Lion Arts Factory
02/05 Perth - Badlands
09/05 Hobart - The Altar
15/05 Melbourne - Corner Hotel

Their last album is titled "What If I Told You It Doesn't Get Better", and they've released the first single from it called 'Feel So Empty'. There is no release date for the album so far.

I'm super upset about this, but at least they're giving us an album before leaving. Wish they could make it to the states for the tour too but that'd be asking too much lol

Song is very good, Zach's vocals are pure bliss

Digging: PVRIS - Use Me

Only talented member in the band is Zachary, and he was better in The Dream To Chase.

Releasing a final album after announcing break up a bit strange. Let’s hope Young Lions stick together, they must be due another album soon too

Song is not bad, but very similar to something you’d hear on AMO.

If this was 2016-2017 sput I would've had to name the news article something punny like that

makes sense, their last 2 singles were utter trash. I'd also wish The Word Alive would disband too, they've also fallen far from grace.

I liked their last album, but I agree on The Word Alive they should've packed it in a while ago

Few things. Dream On Dreamer's cover of "A Thousand Miles" to this day is still great. Them calling it quits is a bummer, but I'd definitely be down for them doing a comeback album a few years down the road if they choose to do so.

Reading the comments about The Word Alive: "Empire" was great, "Deceiver" was incredible (talk about a CRAZY impressive first LP), "Life Cycles" had cool songwriting but wasn't great technically, "Real' was great technically but had iffy songwriting, "Dark Matter" was a direction change that was disappointing but still a good album, and "Violent Noise" had 2-3 decent tracks on an otherwise not-so-good album. Their next album "MONOMANIA" (so far) is sounding better than "Violent Noise", but not by much. I'd love for them to take a year or two off from touring to really crank out a great album

Real was their last great album, Life Cycles was my favorite, and I agree with the rest of what you said minus the Monomania stuff because I'm not really interested in jamming it so I haven't heard the new singles
