Dreamshade Drop “Grey Days” EP Today + Include a Feature From Former Singer

DREAMSHADE DROP GREY DAYS EP TODAY, OCTOBER 14

BAND SHARES “GREY DAYS” VISUALIZER — WATCH + LISTEN

RE-RECORDED VERSION OF 2011 TRACK “WIDE AWAKE” FEATURES CAMEO BY FORMER SINGER IKO CASTELLI

DREAMSHADE have dropped the three-song Grey Days EP today. The EP was produced in Denmark by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Hatesphere). Stream it here.

Dreamshade have also shared the visualizer for the title track. Watch and listen here.

“The idea for this EP was to share three distinctly different songs,” the band explains. “The first is a classic Dreamshade style — a hyper melodic, introspective song. The second is probably one of our heaviest and darkest songs to date. For the last track, we decided to re-record ‘Wide Awake’ from our 2011-released debut record What Silence Hides.”

Furthermore, Dreamshade share the origin story of the song’s extra special feature, saying, “Our fans have been asking for a feature with our former singer Iko Castelli for a full decade so we figured this was the right time to fulfill their request. It’s been so great to be all together in the studio once again and see [current vocalist] Kevin [Calì] and Iko work on vocals together!”
