Yesterday Plug Music Agency and Pure Grain Audio announced South African tour dates for Swiss melodic metal giants Dreamshade for early 2019.
Playing their infectious style of metal, the band has taken the metal world by storm with their melodic hooks and amazing performances. Dreamshade will be supported by special guests Truth & Its Burden plus some of the best the South African metal scene has to offer including Facing the Gallows, Savage Lucy, OneDaySky, Last One Alive, Treehouse Burning and Red Helen.
Guitarist / Vocalist Fernando “Fella” Di Cicco commented on the tour: “We’ve been wanting to get to play South Africa since our past tour in 2014. Now the time has finally come. Me and the guys really can’t wait to meet all our fans and friends to finally party together big time! Help us spread the word about the tour and prepare to have a great time!”
Guitarist Luca Magri added: “So excited we’re heading back to SA once again. I’ve got great memories since my first ever tour with Dreamshade was the past South African tour and we had a blast! Be there and help us make these shows unforgettable!”
More info about Dreamshade
Dreamshade was formed in 2006 in Lugano, Switzerland. Since their inception they have never been an ordinary Metal band. Their mix of melody, heaviness and uplifting lyrics gained the attention of the Modern Rock, Metal and Hardcore scenes.
After the release of their first EP “To the Edge of Reality” in 2008 they signed to Spinefarm Records. Since then they’ve released “What Silence Hides” (in 2011) and “The Gift of Life” (in 2013). Their second album features evergreen songs for the genre like “Consumed Future”, “Photographs” and “Your Voice”.
The band toured continuously and touched 4 continents: Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. This helped them to gain thousands of fans all over the world. In 2015 they released “Dreamers Don’t Sleep” (which was the first single that anticipated the release of a new album).
The band signed with Artery Recordings Discography in 2016 and released their latest album “Vibrant”. The album features new influences like Alternative Rock, Electronic and Rap music. Dreamshade embarked on a sold-out Headliner tour through all of Europe and Asia. A new single called “On My Own” dropped in June 2018. They’re now in the studio working on new material.
