The Los Angeles-via-Brooklyn trio DREAMERS are one of the hardest-working rock bands in the music business. Formed in 2014, the group (vocalist/guitarist Nick Wold, bassist/keyboardist Nelson and drummer Jacob Wick) have played everywhere from tiny bars and massive arenas to festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot and Firefly. They've met their musical heroes—including Weezer's Rivers Cuomo—and shared stages with notable acts such as Stone Temple Pilots, Catfish and The Bottlemen, The Maine, Weezer, The Griswolds, etc.
All of this hard work paid off on DREAMERS' debut album, 2016's This Album Does Not Exist: The record is an effervescent amalgamation of grungy guitar fuzzbombs, snappy synth-pop grooves and irresistible pop hooks. (Think modern-day Weezer, or Nirvana with a candy-coated exterior.) Upon release, This Album Does Not Exist spawned a national radio hit, the electro-sprinkled pop gem "Sweet Disaster," which peaked at No. 7 on the Alternative radio chart and was on SiriusXM's Alt Nation for several weeks. Three other songs also charted nationally: the '90s throwback "Drugs"; the crooning "Wolves (You Got Me)," which initially charted on Alt Nation in late 2014, when DREAMERS was still unsigned, and the soulful, brisk power-pop of the current single "Painkiller".
