In this Dream Tour segment, the rock band, Dead Friends, reveals who they would put on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks and stream their newest single, Torches, after the break.
About a month ago while at practice our drummer, Christian, told us about his actual dream tour. In a dream he had the night before he was at an Every Time I Die show hanging out with their frontman, Kieth Buckley. It was their time to play and during the drum intro of “Decaying With The Boys” he grabbed both sides of his Christian’s head, made unshakable eye contact and whispered “Europe.” To this day we believe that this dream has sent a frequency into the universe that’ll make this Dead Friends and Every Time I Die European tour in accordance with the prophecy.
Since our youth, my brother and I have absolutely loved Underoath. We stumbled upon the music video for “Reinventing Your Exit” in 2004 and we’ve been hooked ever since. Having seen just about every bonus DVD, live concert and studio update, it’s only natural for them to be on the bill of our dream tour. They’re just one of those bands that’s the answer to the question “what’s your favorite band?” To us, Underoath has evolved in such an admirable, and stylistically cohesive way, so yeah we look forward to inevitably sharing the stage with them as well.
Four is such a solid number so we need one more band on our dream tour. I think it’d be most appropriate to top it off with a band that has made an unforgettable impression on the world. Effortless showmanship and unmatchable energy go into Slipknot’s live show and I think every band has something to learn from the culture they’ve created around their music. So that’s it, and we all become best friends, and grill out, and play catch every day and then we all live happily ever after— the end!
