Southern California’s DAYSEEKER have released a new radio single and music video for the intensely-intimate song “Dreamstate”. from their album, Dark Sun.
The vehicular video features performance footage and a mechanic who may be living in a dreamstate of her own.
“‘Dreamstate’ is about vivid dreams I had of my father after he passed,” shares singer Rory Rodriguez. “There were truly times it felt as if we were communicating with one another, but I’d wake to reality and it would deeply affect my ability to cope.”
Dayseeker will also embark on a headline U.S. tour this spring. The tour kicks off April 19th in Tampa, Florid and runs through May 25th in San Diego. The band is also confirmed on a number of Spring and Summer festival appearances, such as Rockfest, WJRR’s Earthday Birthday, and more. Strong support sets from Polaris, Rain City Drive, Avoid, and Ayron Jones will be featured on select dates, as well.
The band will also appear on a number of shows with Staind, Seether, I Prevail, The Struts, and Asking Alexandria in April, performing in Baltimore MD, Worcester MA, Newark, NJ, Milwaukee WI, and St. Paul, MN, along with several other markets.
Dayseeker are a quiet killer. The band has steadily built a buzz over the past several years — and they have reached a tipping point. Dayseeker built themselves into a scene standout with 2019’s Sleeptalk, which was hailed by Alternative Press as “a warm and welcome release to higher ground” and as “much needed fresh air into the post-hardcore scene.” The album has gone on to accumulate over 125 million streams, and it positioned the band as a formidable force — and one that is primed to take its next big leap. In 2021, the band dropped a deluxe-version of Sleeptalk, featuring four reimagined versions of album tracks, which offered fans a fresh and unique take on songs they already loved. It also demonstrated the depth and breadth of the band’s creative vision, scope, and possibilities. However, the Dark Sun album has catapulted the band beyond the scene’s stratosphere. The album is out now via Spinefarm and has already accrued over 80 million total streams.
