Dream On, Dreamer Has Broken Up

In a social media post earlier today, Dream on, Dreamer has announced that they are no more.

The band made a splash in the early part of the previous decade, releasing Homebound during the golden days of post-hardcore and going on several tours with bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Pierce the Veil, and Silverstein.

Dream on, Dreamer was a band I found in their early EP stages, with the impressive Set Sail, Armada and Hope entering my regular rotation in 2009. Following years saw some strong albums, like Loveless and Songs of Solitude. Most impressive is that the band stayed afloat after leaving label management in 2014 by releasing some of their best work in 2018’s It Comes and Goes.

In the statement made today, the band noted that they are “at a cross road where other areas of our personal lives require that care and attention to be focused”. The band has a lot to be proud of, with many accomplishments over their 11-year span.

Us at New Fury wish the band well, and thank them for their awesome music that we will reminisce on today and in the future!

“…Also our drummer died” – Is this the best band breakup ever?

Here’s what Witchrot posted to their Facebook Sunday night:

Reflecting on the legacy of Arcane Roots

When a band breaks up after a long and hugely successful career, a certain cluster of emotions usually comes to mind among fans: nostalgia for the years spent with their music; pride in their incredible accomplishments; and ultimately, acceptance that it is that band’s time to go. Yet a decidedly different feeling accompanies yesterday’s news that British progressive rock band Arcane Roots will be calling it quits. That’s not to say that the band’s music didn’t leave an incredible impact… to the contrary, they were one of the most breathtakingly original and captivating bands to grace progressive music in years. Yet the tragedy of their breakup at this particular moment is that this felt like a band which, for all their successes thus far, was just getting started.
