Dreams In Peril are a five-piece groove-driven and dynamic death metal/hardcore act out of Kansas City. Combining crushing grooves with cinematic soundscape melodies, the band brings a huge dynamic that has been captured on the upcoming album ‘Ascending’.
Having supported acts such as BORN OF OSIRIS, BENEATH THE MASSACRE, ORIGIN, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, VEIL OF MAYA, and THE ACACIA STRAIN, since forming in 2018 Dreams In Peril have quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Soon after the band’s inception, Dreams In Peril released a debut album titled ‘MePhobia’ and the video clip for the lead single ‘Neckties And Nostalgia’.
The band started out as a four-piece and found the path to the present an endurance of setbacks both personal and professional. The band’s name is a reflection of the experience of these challenges and overcoming them. This however soon changed, with the band being picked up by leading international heavy music management agency EMG in 2019 (SUFFOCATION, CRYPTOPSY, RINGS OF SATURN).
Following some line-up changes and writing for a new album, Dreams In Peril recruited a second guitarist, Lucas Munoz, and a new vocalist Dakota Otte. Consolidating the band lineup as the most devastating yet, Dreams In Peril entered the studio to record a new yet-to-be-released album in 2022 titled ‘Ascending’.

Story Angles – Fun Facts
Fun Fact #1 – We all have silly nicknames for each other in our band group chat. For example, Josh is Peanut Butter Farts. The dude eats peanut butter and well… The name explains what happens… Jeff is El Jefe… As in… The Jeff Dalton is Band Dad.. because he kinda keeps us all in line and handles the majority of band business. Dakota is Mr. Holey pants. He wears lots of jeans with holes in them… Lucas is Karen… He um… Gets his panties all up in a wad sometimes… lol
Fun Fact #2 – Josh is the band’s electrical tech. If a piece of our equipment
goes down, Josh repairs it. It’s nice having our own guitar tech.
Fun Fact #3 – The majority of us are Dads. and we still manage to tour and
get out and STILL be dads when we get back.
Fun Fact #4 – As we had mentioned. The band is themed about overcoming personal issues and life problems, But is more so derived from past failures in past bands. This band is about becoming more than what we were both individually and as a band. This is also why the band’s name is Dreams In Peril.
Fun Fact #5 – Our practice space is inside of a storage unit. We practice
inside an indoor climate-controlled storage facility.
