FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS is the latest addition to the Artery Recordings roster, the joint venture between The Artery Foundation and Razor Tie. The Lansing, Michigan-based band will hit the road in the early spring with CHELSEA GRIN, ATTILA, and others for a national U.S. tour. The group is also confirmed to perform at the South by Southwest Music Conference And Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.
“We are very proud to announce our signing with Artery Recordings/Razor Tie,” said FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS vocalist Dylan Richter. “We couldn’t be more excited about joining the Artery family. We are in the studio right now with Tom Denney in the process of writing, and recording a brand new record. Keep your eyes peeled for studio updates, and videos. After the studio, we will be out with CHELSEA GRIN, ATTILA, CHUNK! NO CAPTAIN CHUNK, VANNA, and THE CRIMSON ARMADA on the Artery-exclusive Sick Tour.”
“I was extremely excited when the opportunity came along to sign FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS,” said Artery Recordings label manager Mike Milford. “We have followed the band’s entire history and feel that they will integrate well into our family at Artery Recordings. The material I have heard so far for the new release will crush and definitely be ten steps above all previous material they have done.”
Formed in 2003, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS has released three full-length albums — “Changes” (2008), “Relentless” (2009) and “Back Burner” (2011) on Rise Records — and a self-titled EP (2003). The band has toured extensively, including taking part in national stints with UNEARTH, FOR TODAY, NORMA JEAN, CHELSEA GRIN and OF MICE MEN, as well as European shows supporting A DAY TO REMEMBER, BURY YOUR DEAD and more. Revolver magazine said of FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS‘ music, “The band does manage to create material that will engage even the most jaded heavy-music listener” and Alter The Press said, “They do a great job at the divide between melody and angst, giving enough of each to both move and pump fists, just what every band that walks the line of hardcore needs, wishes for and much, much more.”
FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS is Dylan Richter (vocals), Kalan Blehm (guitar), Jim Hocking (guitar) and Arvin Sarathy (drums). The band is managed by Dog of The Artery Foundation and represented for touring by Matt Andersen of The Pantheon Agency.
