King Dream is thrilled to release their brand new album, Glory Days V, now available on all streaming platforms.
What started as a 4 song EP at the beginning of 2020 blossomed into a self produced triple album by the end of last year, spanning a myriad of collaborators, including GRAMMY winning mix engineers Dave Way (Fionna Apple, Macy Gray) and Michael Brauer (John Mayer, Coldplay).
While the first installment, which the band toured last year, was chalk full of rock anthems with soaring vocals and sky splitting guitar solos, echoing from sweaty small European clubs to fervorous festival audiences along the West Coast, this album sees the band experimenting with bedroom R&B and psychedelia, as well as Lyon’s maiden voyage behind the faders, mixing much of the record from his home studio Dimed Records. The result launches the band into deftly navigating uncharted waters.
King Dream’s third album Glory Daze V, is a magnum opus born out of happenstance and brimming with ambition. It’s a cinematic journey of an album rarely seen these days. It’s about keeping the fire burning, and the desire yearning, while empires and life as we know it crumble around us. It’s about — what it takes to stay, to support instead of seek, and the love and community we can forge when we foster instead of follow.
King Dream is a Bay Area rock ‘n’ roll band helmed by Oakland native Jeremy Lyon, a lifelong songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who crafts dive bar anthems with heart, brains and soul. Hard-rocking yet poignant, his music combines a love for American rock masters like Springsteen and Petty with ‘60s West Coast psychedelia and more contemporary torch-bearers like My Morning Jacket and The War on Drugs — all brought to life by a band of Northern California’s most in-demand players.
