Dreams In Peril are a five-piece groove-driven and dynamic death metal/hardcore act out of Kansas City. Combining crushing grooves with cinematic soundscape melodies, the band brings a huge dynamic that has been captured on the upcoming album ‘Ascending’.
Having supported acts such as BORN OF OSIRIS, BENEATH THE MASSACRE, ORIGIN, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, VEIL OF MAYA, and THE ACACIA STRAIN, since forming in 2018 Dreams In Peril have quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Soon after the band’s inception, Dreams In Peril released a debut album titled ‘MePhobia’ and the video clip for the lead single ‘Neckties And Nostalgia’.
The band started out as a four-piece and found the path to the present an endurance of setbacks both personal and professional. The band’s name is a reflection of the experience of these challenges and overcoming them. This however soon changed, with the band being picked up by leading international heavy music management agency EMG in 2019 (SUFFOCATION, CRYPTOPSY, RINGS OF SATURN).
Following some line-up changes and writing for a new album, Dreams In Peril recruited a second guitarist, Lucas Munoz, and a new vocalist Dakota Otte. Consolidating the band lineup as the most devastating yet, Dreams In Peril entered the studio to record a new yet-to-be-released album in 2022 titled ‘Ascending’.
