Jeromes Dream recording first album in 18 years, touring with Loma Prieta
Connecticut screamo band Jeromes Dream were around briefly in the late '90s and early '00s, when they released two albums and a handful of splits, including one with Orchid, who -- along with Jeromes Dream -- are credited with shaping the sound of turn-of-the-century screamo and went to influence tons of the genre's biggest bands. They broke up in 2001 (and drummer Erik Ratensperger went on to form The Virgins), and they finally returned last year with plans for a new album and touring in 2019. They initially planned to record the album with Converge's Kurt Ballou, but they're now instead making it with Jack Shirley and they're set to begin recording in March. They write:
We are set to record in March 2019. Due to logistical and scheduling issues, we are no longer recording with Kurt (Ballou). Instead (and we're so excited to announce) that we will be working with Jack Shirley at his studio, The Atomic Garden in Oakland, CA. Jack has worked with incredible bands, most notably Deafheaven, Loma Prieta, Gouge Away, Oathbreaker, Whirr, Joyce Manor, and countless others. We spoke last week, hit it off, and locked in the dates.
So now we have our north star for the LP, and we cannot fucking wait.
They've also confirmed a summer tour with Loma Prieta, though dates for that tour are still TBA. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: The full tour is still TBA, but Jeromes Dream and Loma Prieta have announced the Brooklyn date, happening July 26 at Saint Vitus with special guests (tickets).
Meanwhile, listen to some demos of songs for the new LP...
