Dream State work through their demons with new track, 'Twenty Letters'

Dream State have shared another teaser from their upcoming debut album.

'Twenty Letters' is taken from 'Primrose Path' - the follow-up to debut EP 'Recovery' - which is set for release on 18th October via UNFD.

"Twenty Letters is one of my favourite tracks from Primrose Path," says vocalist CJ. "It was about a time in my life where it was a make or break moment. Society’s standardised ways of living were crippling; I was constantly carrying the pain of others around me and I started to face the shadow aspects to my own personality and felt trapped and tormented by my own mind. I sat in my room in the dark and I just cried and broke down. I felt so alone and all my pain rose to the surface and I had to face it all head on, rather than run from it like I always had by self-medicating.

"The urge to write had overcome me and felt that what I would write was either going to say goodbye or ease some pain in some way but I knew that night I would do things differently this time. As I started to write, I flooded pages with all the things that were hurting me and my lack of understanding of it all, but shortly after I purged my pain, hope would follow and conquer it. It was cathartic doing it that way."

The full-length will be supported by a short headline tour, which kicks off on 27th October in Glasgow. They'll then play Manchester, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Swansea and London before heading to Europe to support Being As An Ocean.
