Knoxville punk/alternative rock crew Rough Dreams has dropped a new music video for their latest single “Desert Ghosts.” The dynamic and grunge infused anthem sees the Tennessee quartet balance pacey guitars with gritty vocals and abundant melodic injections.
“Desert Ghosts” is taken from Rough Dreams’ upcoming album, Disappear. Reappear., set for release September 24th, 2021 on 59 X Records & available for pre-order HERE.
“‘Desert Ghosts’ is about looking the people in the eye who have tried to destroy you, and telling them ‘better luck next time.’ Making the video for it couldn’t have been more fitting, because there was never a shortage of things trying to destroy us. From the nearly 2,000 mile trip to the desert for the shoot, to the van breaking down outside of town, all of us getting sick and dehydrated, and filming in 109 degree heat…we still made it, and despite all of that, it was an amazing trip. Better luck next time. – Jake Jones
Drawing on late 90s/early 00s emo and punk, Rough Dreams was conceived in 2018 by guitarist and vocalist Jake Jones. Incorporating nods to shoegaze and grunge, Rough Dreams has developed a cultured and dynamic sonic identity. With the additions of Chris Suggs, Matt Isbell, and Paul Lowe, Rough Dreams recruited ex-Swellers vocalist, Nick Diener and Whitechapel guitarist Zach Householder to help engineer what would become the band’s debut EP, 2019’s self-titled Rough Dreams.
Rough Dreams hit the road hard in support of the debut record and saw their stock rise in multiple regions across the US, boosting their fan base and drawing the attention of Atlanta’s 59 X Records.
2021 singles “Termites Hollow” and “Cursed at The Sun” would follow, with the Knoxville punks taking to the great outdoors for the release of new video “Desert Ghosts”.
