Kansas City’s Dreams in Peril have a new single out just as they embark on a tour across the Midwest with Pig Weed. This tour will take them through seven states over nine days, and each one will be a display of passion, precision, and musicianship. The new single “Ascending” shows considerable growth since their debut album release in 2019 and it is a reminder to them and fans alike that despite the trials and tribulations one goes through in life, the mission is to ultimately overcome, or ascend. They provide their thoughts on the single:
“Ascending is about us as a band continuing to strive for more and pushing to bigger heights. We look to expand as a band, where in past bands, we didn’t. Reaching for your goals and meeting them. That’s what this song and album are about!”
Dreams In Peril takes relevant and relatable themes involving anger, sadness, death, and other life problems and sets them to brutal tones, breakdowns, and grind. Their music influences the words that are written but they always come back to real experiences.
Since their last album “Mephobia” released in 2019, they have matured and grown together as musicians. As they have gotten more comfortable with each other, both personally and musically, their sound has gotten tighter and more dynamic and flows together better. The next chapter, the upcoming album, will no doubt be miles ahead of the last.
Dreams In Peril makes music that is relatable and real. It is recommended for fans of Oceano, Emmure, and Suicide Silence.
The music video for “Ascending” can be seen and heard via its premiere on Hardcore Worldwide – https://youtu.be/eOljuBe-c9M

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’.
