Dreamers to Release New Single SCREWS 5/25 + Announces Headline U.S. Tour
The L.A.-via-Brooklyn trio DREAMERS, are set to release new single, "Screws," a sensually charged track driven by pounding drumbeats and lyrics that perfectly channel the frenzy of the mental and physical unraveling of a relationship. The song, to be released Friday, May 25, will also be featured on the band's upcoming EP due early summer. The single coincides with the announcement of the band's 31 city U.S. headlining tour kicking off onSeptember 13 in San Diego, CA, and features support acts Weathers, label-mate morgxn, and Rad Horror on select dates.
"Screws" is the first follow up to DREAMERS' debut album, This Album Does Not Exist, which debuted in 2016 and spun off three singles that charted at the top of theBillboard Alternative chart, including the top 10 Alt radio hit, "Sweet Disaster."
"Screws," says lead singer, Nick Wold, "is a tortured love song about losing your mind -- the lyric is I'm lying naked and my brain has lost its screws. We really wanted to make a passionate song in the style of early 90's industrial music, which often dealt with the darker sides of romance, while bringing it into the world of 2018 sonically. It came out of the crumbling of logic and reason that love can bring, twisted dreams and memories, ghosts and insurmountable walls that can be created in a mind left to its own devices. I had a strange feeling at the end my last relationship, that I was most lonely when I was with her."
Before DREAMERS hit the road this September with openers Weathers, morgxn, and Rad Horror, the trio (vocalist/guitarist Nick Wold, bassist Nelson and drummer/vocalist Jacob Wick) will make their debut appearance Bonnarooperforming Thursday, June 7. The band will continue to release new music throughout the summer leading into their headlining tour.
Los Angeles-via-Brooklyn trio DREAMERS have spent the past few years touring non-stop, playing everywhere from tiny bars and massive arenas to festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot and Firefly. Along the way, Nick, Nelson and Jacob have shared stages with the likes of Stone Temple Pilots, X Ambassadors, The 1975, Bleachers, Atlas Genius Catfish and The Bottlemen, Weezer, and The Griswolds, while garnering coverage from Fader, Entertainment Weekly and Paste, among many others. In 2016, the band released their debut full-length albumThis Album Does Not Exist, which spawned a national radio hit, the electro-sprinkled pop gem "Sweet Disaster," which hit No. 7 on the Alternative radio chart and was spotlighted on SiriusXM's Alt Nation for several months. Three other songs also charted nationally: the '90s throwback "Drugs," the crooning "Wolves (You Got Me)," which initially charted on Alt Nation in late 2014, when DREAMERS were still unsigned, and the soulful, brisk power-pop of their single "Painkiller." The band recently wrapped a tour with All Time Low, and are gearing up to release their new single, "Screws," on May 25th with more new music to be released throughout 2018 and a fall U.S. headlining tour.
Weathers is Cameron Boyer, guitarist Cameron Olsen, bassist Brennen Bates, and drummer Cole Carson. Having gone through some challenging events over the past two years, Boyer wanted to process his struggles through songwriting. He felt compelled to make feel-good songs about self-value, self-discovery, and about being betrayed and moving on. When Boyer and Olsen began writing new songs in January 2017, what emerged was "this messy, glitchy sound," Boyer says, adding that a 1958 Silvertone guitar bought from a garage sale is played on nearly every song, and gave the music what the album's producer Tim Pagnotta (WALK THE MOON, Neon Trees) called a "ratty, acoustic" feel. Weathers' full-length album Kids in the Night will be available June 22nd and EPs Kids in the Night Part 1 andKids in the Night Part 2 are available on streaming platforms now.
