DREAMING DEAD To Release Midnightmares On April 20th

February 29th, 2012

Los Angeles-based progressive/melodic death metal act DREAMING DEAD has set April 20th as the release date for their highly anticipated sophomore effort, Midnightmares. The follow up to 2009’s Within One, Midnightmares showcases DREAMING DEAD’s ability to meld elements of black, death, thrash and Schuldiner-inspired progressive metal into one thought-provoking and intense sonic assault. Midnightmares was recorded in part at the band’s home studio, with vocals, drums and mixing completed at North Hollywood’s Architeuthis Sound. Cover artwork for Midnightmareswas done by renowned artist Travis Smith (Opeth, King Diamond, Devin Townsend, et. al.). DREAMING DEAD are working with director Thomas Mignone and Peter Leininger (known for their work with Morbid Angel, Sepultura, Megadeth and many more) on a video for the track “Corpse Mtn.” Details on the video shoot are forthcoming.

DREAMING DEAD are proud to announce the addition of lead guitarist Stephanie Pickard.  She and singer/guitarist Elizabeth Schall form the most shredding female guitar tandem in metal today.

Pickard studied with Bruce Bouillet and Paul Gilbert of legendary shred band RACER X.  She became a Minarik Guitars endorsee at the age of 16.  Schall is a Fernandes Guitars endorsee.  She will perform at NAMM at the Fernandes Guitars booth on January 14 and 15.

A video of them playing together can be viewed here.

DREAMING DEAD have drawn comparisons to DEATH, DISSECTION, and OPETH.  In April, the Los Angeles-based band will enter the studio to record their new album Midnightmares.
