Dreaming Dead is Los Angeles' answer to underground mediocrity and mainstream banality. Formed in 2006 by frontwoman Elizabeth Schall and drummer Mike Caffell, Dreaming Dead continues to capture the attention of audiences and listeners across the globe. Whether through pummeling fans as a live act, or through setting up a successful Kickstarter campaign to self-release Midnightmares, Dreaming Dead is consistently in the business of turning heads. Midnightmares is Dreaming Dead's sophomore release, and it represents a continuation and a refinement of the sound on the debut, Within One. Characteristic thrash riffs lock in with blasting drums, and then it turns... the dynamics shift and a somber clean guitar evokes the stillness of night. Midnightmares is a self-released production, and it has garnered worldwide acclaim. Dreaming Dead is currently performing in support of Midnightmares and writing new material. L.A.-based guitar guru Chris McCarthy has recently been added to the line-up, taking the bands' live sound and songwriting to new levels. Expect crushing live performances throughout 2013 and devastating new material in 2014.
