Welsh 5 piece DREAM STATE are off on their biggest ever UK headline tour to date, through March and April 2019. They will be playing 24 shows in less than a month, including a London Underworld show on April 17th and a Welsh return to Cardiff at Clwb Ifor Bach on 22nd April (the tours final date).
The band have also released new song Hand In Hand
"Hand In Hand is a single for our listeners; our family. To all those who need something they can lean on, we want the music and lyrics to help you feel less alone with what you're dealing with mentally. Despite all of us feeling the same way, we can still live our lives and make something of it. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, you just gotta give all you got!"
"We have a lot of fan mail on a day-to-day basis of people telling us about the experiences and the dark head spaces they find themselves in. Unfortunately, it's impossible to reply to everyone, so this song is a way to say we’ve heard you and this is our response to what you’ve told us."
From DREAM STATE vocalist CJ on the single/video - "We are really stoked about this tour! It’s our biggest headline tour yet and we are excited to see all the fans again. We’re hitting a few new
places, so we hope to expand the team a bit more and just have a good time. We will be dropping a lot of new music so can’t wait to express these new songs on the stage."
"We are also happy to share a song with you and its a cover of “Crawling” by Linkin Park. It is part of the “Songs That Saved My Life” compilation being released this Friday on Hopeless Records. Linkin Park helped shape us as people and musicians and their music aided us during the darkest times and helped inspire the music we make today."
"We are currently in the throes of album writing and we are so happy on how it’s all coming together. We are currently working hard on getting this album out, so we can tour in more countries and reach out to as many people as possible, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions and we can’t wait to show the world what we have to offer."
Live wise, the band have just finished touring the UK and Europe with The Amity Affliction, having previously toured the UK with As It Is, played shows in Europe with Baby Metal and played at their first Download and 2000trees Festivals this summer.
