Formed in 2009, ARIA award-nominated act Dream on Dreamer have had a successful, yet also trying career - from line-up changes, shifts in industry collaborations, health scares, to even facing legal issues to keep the band actively touring in Australia. However, through this arduous journey, the band has well and truly re-found its footing and is ready to conquer the heavy music scene. Since their inception, Dream on Dreamer hasn’t skipped a beat, with every release charting highly in the ARIA and iTunes charts. The band have also toured just about every market imaginable – from multiple expeditions to the US and Europe, as well as Russia, Japan, South East Asia, New Zealand, and of course their home turf of Australia. Supporting some of the biggest names in the genre (Avenged Sevenfold, Pierce the Veil, A Day to Remember, Sleeping with Sirens and more), the band has formed a strong fanbase, both at home and overseas, which is reected in their online and social media presence. More recently, Dream on Dreamer has continued to move from strength to strength, proven with the release of singles 'Don’t Lose Your Heart' and 'Stay' (which have racked up a combined 11,500,000+ streams across Spotify and YouTube). And this upward trajectory is set to continue with the band now gearing up to release their fourth studio record, ‘It Comes and Goes’. Recorded in-house with guitarist/producer Callan Orr, the band has come out with a well-rened bank of ris and catchy vocal hooks that are sure to leave a lasting impression. The band also teamed up with the formidable Dave Petrovic (who produced Dream on Dreamer's debut EP ‘Hope’) to capture vocals at a world-class production level.
After the massive worldwide success of the debut album Heartbound in 2011, Dream On Dreamer have released their much anticipated sophomore record Loveless to rave reviews.
- "...a refreshing mix of aggression and fond sentimentality, a combination that is rare to perfect but done so here." The Music.
- "Loveless is a fine follow-up to its predecessor." Kill Your Stereo.
Loveless was produced and mixed by guitarist Callan Orr, while vocalist Marcel Gadacz designed the artwork and imagery for the record. This DIY mentality is a rarity for such a young band within the Metalcore genre and illustrates the complete creative control that they have asserted on the new album.
Loveless is Dream On Dreamer’s first record as a five piece, a lineup change saw them add Chris Shaw (ex-House VS Hurricane) to bass, as well as the addition of new clean vocalist, Zachary Britt, into the fold. Britt made his debut with DOD as one of the headliners at Push Over Festival in March, before completing a 30 date European tour, which included the band’s first ever headline shows in Russia.
Relentless touring has become an uncompromising part of the Dream On Dreamer lifestyle. While lead vocalist Marcel Gadacz (Germany) and drummer Aaron Fiocca (USA) are not native to Australia, the entire band has spent most of the last two years playing shows around the world. They have toured multiple times across the USA, Asia and Europe, with stopovers in Australia to play the Soundwave Festival and headline dates in between. They’ve done massive tours ranging from 8-40 shows alongside the who’s who of modern metal and hardcore – Avenged Sevenfold, The Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack, Memphis May Fire, Sleeping With Sirens, We Came As Romans, Pierce The Veil and many more. On top of that, they’ve managed to release three EPs, an album and a DVD in a short space of time.
Loveless is the first time the band has been able to really focus on writing music with their intense touring schedule. The extra work and effort shows, and is a definitive statement about what they’ve learnt from the last three years of ridiculously hard work. Loveless is out now!
