US alt-pop band DREAMERS play Reading & Leeds Festivals this summer

US alternative pop band DREAMERS have announced that they will play Reading & Leeds festivals this summer, ahead of their UK tour supporting The Night Café.

Fresh off the back of the release of their new album LAUNCH FLY LAND, and an extensive US tour with Dirty Heads, the band will perform on the Festival Republic Stage at Reading & Leeds, before heading out on a 21-date tour including shows in Dublin, Birmingham, Brighton and London, as well as two nights at Manchester’s Albert Hall.

DREAMERS are Nick Wold, Nelson and Jacob Lee Wick. From experiencing the arena-rock grandeur of landing a coveted opening slot on Stone Temple Pilots’ 2015 U.S. tour to performing alongside Jay-Z and Gorillaz, there have been plenty of highs for the band over the past five years. But there have also been a fair share of crushing lows when it’s come to dissolving relationships and personal struggles — and that duality is present all overLAUNCH FLY LAND.

Wold notes, “The first two EPs were all about this big breakup that I had been through and these new songs were written in the aftermath of that, so in a sense this album is really the sound of me discovering myself.” The aura of loneliness and longing at the core of ‘Insomniac’ exemplifies that alienation, whereas ‘Die Happy’ takes the other side: “It was written after I was coming out of the emotional weight of a breakup and starting to fall in love with the love song again.”

The sentiments of triumph and tragedy on LAUNCH FLY LAND are universal and DREAMERS are happy to have come out on the other side with these songs serving as an affirmation of the experience. “We can’t wait to get out on the road and share these songs with people,” Wold summarizes. “In the end, that’s what this is all about.”
