Stream screamo vets Jeromes Dream’s intense new song “South by Isolation”
Screamo pioneers Jeromes Dream are releasing their second reunion album, The Gray In Between, on 5/5 via Iodine, and we're now premiering its second single, "South by Isolation." It's even darker, heavier, and tighter than their 2019 comeback LP, and vocalist/bassist Jeff Smith says, "The lyrics are a reference to my struggle with anxiety. Of course I want to be fully present for all significant moments (big and small) in life, but at times, I feel like I need to detach from everything and everyone to find peace and reset."
Drummer Erik Ratensperger adds, "Musically, 'South By Isolation' is a melodic wall that has a discernible distinction from the rest of the album. It has an unexpected effect with how the chorus catapults with Jeff’s pleading lyric, 'I’ve got to get away, just to breathe.' A simple, yet very relatable sentiment." Check it out below.
Jeromes Dream are also gearing up for a tour with Elizabeth Colour Wheel, which hits NYC on June 2 at TV Eye. All dates below.
