DREAM STATE Release New Video for ‘New Waves’

Dream State share an important message with fans in their newest video for New Waves

This year has seen Dream State riding their own wave of success, playing festivals such as Slam Dunk and Download and winning the ‘Best British Breakthrough’ from Kerrang! Awards 2018. This doesn’t make the Welsh quintet exempt from the emotions that affect everyone though, and they share their own messages of hope in their newest video for New Waves.

Vocalist CJ explains the meaning behind the video:

I wanted to show our fans, as I know a lot of them are going through their own troubles, that they have it in them to push through it. Sometimes we have to face our battles alone, but there is always going to be that inner voice that tells you that you’ve got this and that is the one you need to be listening to. We had so many amazing quotes sent through that any weak moment I had during the filming process, I had all these amazing, positive quotes surrounding me that brought a tear to my eye and it helped me perform better than I ever have. I hope our listeners can take from this and see that they have that strength in them too. They are surrounded by people just like them and they are not alone with it. Practice positive thinking.

The video sees inspirational messages such as ‘You’ve got this’ and ‘Until you’re broken you don’t know what you’re made of’ written on pieces of card, and it’s an important message that Dream State share. The lyrics are equally honest, and as CJ’s soaring vocals pierce through you, you’ll be left with chills down your spine at the honesty and emotional intensity.

The band will be touring the UK in October alongside The Amity Affliction. Catch them live and witness this affirming track for yourself.
