Lansing, Michigan's FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS will release its new album, "Wasted Youth", on July 17 via Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie. The CD was produced by Tom Denney (formerly of A DAY TO REMEMBER) in his Florida studio during the winter of 2012.
FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS have taken to Facebook and are asking their fans to select the final cover art for "Wasted Youth". Four options can be found on the band's Facebook page and the design with the most likes by May 4 will be selected as the official album cover. The cover options can be viewed here.
FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS recently wrapped up a nationwide tour with Artery Recordings labelmates CHELSEA GRIN, ATTILA and VANNA. They will hit the road this summer as part of the high-profile 2012 All Stars Tour, which kicks off on July 26 and makes stops across the country before concluding on August 25. SUICIDE SILENCE will headline the tour with additional support from UNEARTH and DANCE GAVIN DANCE (both on select dates) as well as THE WORD ALIVE, I SEE STARS, A SKYLIT DRIVE, WINDS OF PLAGUE and ATTILA, among others.
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.
