dreams of dying is 25 years old

May 16th 2021 will mark 25 years since the first arrangement of our song "Dreams of Dying" was locked in, with us playing it live very soon after as a two-piece band at venues around Brisbane such as the Normanby Hotel (The Abyss) and the Treasury Hotel. There is a very clear memory of playing it at The Zoo on 31st July 1996.

To mark the 25th birthday of Dreams of Dying, we've completed some new mixes of the song using the Cassiopeia-era vocals and some other audio elements recorded during 1998 - 99, plus some re-recorded parts. A video has been re-cut by Thomas Evans from the live 2004 video by Dennis Remmer (TransCom) and Scot McPhie (Mango-a-Gogo).

Dreams of Dying 2021 will be released on 16th May, and will include the version from the video, a new dub mix, and the full length arrangement. It will be available on all major streaming and download services such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Bandcamp, etc, and the video will be available on YouTube.
