Prepare to embark on a journey with DREAMERS, with their unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene. Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Lennon and David Lynch, DREAMERS first sent their kaleidoscopic sound out into the universe with their self-titled debut EP (November 18, 2014) and now return with their highly anticipated follow up, This Album Does Not Exist, due in late Summer of 2015.

Their colorfully passionate music tugged at heartstrings and had tastemakers dancing around the room all in one fell swoop, with praise pouring in from the likes of Billboard, Spin, Alternative Press, Vice NOISEY, Guitar World, and major buzz from the blogosphere and HypeM heavy hitters like The Wild Honey Pie, Earmilk and Baeble. Their lead single "Wolves" has been in full rotation on SiriusXM's AltNation for over 11 weeks and has climbed the Alt18 Countdown (based on fan votes) - where it has remained for over 8 weeks. It has also received spins on KROQ and reached #2 on alternative specialty radio's FMQB and KKBB charts.The band has shared the stage with indie rock royalty including The Vaccines, The 1975, Bear Hands, Walk The Moon, Oberhofer, Broncho, etc. Not band for an unsigned indie band, huh?

Comprised of Nick Wold (vocals, guitar), Chris Bagamery (drums, backup vocals), and Nelson (bass, backup vocals) DREAMERS are (for the meantime) currently wandering in Brooklyn. With Nick and Chris having awoken in Seattle and Nelson in Maryland, they each found a contemplative solace in music, and first met in another life as part of four-piece band, Motive. After catching the attention of the likes of MTV2 and New York Times as well as opening slots for the likes of The Vaccines and Bear Hands, Motive eventually parted ways only to reform in this current life as a three-piece outfit, which would become DREAMERS.

DREAMERS' upcoming LP is a psychedelic collection of indie rock tunes that journeys through an array of experiences culminating one transcendental moment. With each track a mystifying journey and tale in itself, DREAMERS are ultimately here for one purpose - to help you follow your dream, whatever it may be.
