Considered being one of the throne heirs of Scandinavian Melodic Metalcore/Post-Hardcore acts such as ADEPT, and IN FLAMES, the Stockholm based Post-Hardcore/Metalcore quintet AWAKE THE DREAMER is coming back strong this summer. After featuring on multiple tours across UK and Europe in recent time the band is following up 2017’s successful single ‘Vigilant’ with their new self-release ‘Believe’ on June 29th 2018 taken from the upcoming yet untitled debut album.

In 2018 AWAKE THE DREAMER appeared on selected festivals in Germany, Austria, Sweden and apart from a few headline shows supporting Napalm Records Post-Hardcore heroes ADEPT together with Japan's Metalcore stars CRYSTAL LAKE in Germany/Switzerland. Also in August the Stockholm boys featured on the exclusive Scandinavian dates in Sweden and Norway opening for Australian Tech Metalcore legends in NORTHLANE before going to Tokyo, Japan for an exclusive appearance at the True North Festival.

AWAKE THE DREAMER have since Japan been silent and spending time in the studio finishing the upcoming album that is told to be dropping later this year including 10 tracks via Arising Empire.

“We are super stoked to have joined forces with Arising Empire and it surely feels like the perfect choice for us. We’ve been working on this album for a long time now and with a ridiculous amount of other labels interested, we felt like a German label, Arising is where we should be.” explains singer and bassplayer Benjamin Turesson.

Despite that the band not yet have released their debut full length, they’ve toured across the world multiple times, including UK, Europe, Japan and most recently China. Vocalist Max Andrén says that “I’m completely overwhelmed with the support we’ve received so far, both from people we work with and the fans around the world. The last two years have been amazing, yet this is only the beginning and we can’t wait to share our new songs with everyone out there.”

Stay tuned. This is chapter one. This is ‘Your Mind’.
