Ben Murray and Trey Derbes (vocalist/guitarist and drummer, respectively) of Californian melodic punk band Heartsounds have formed a new thrash metal project with Ryan Hansen (Light This City) and Bret Fontaine (The Business End) called Wilderness Dream. This band is a far departure from Heartsounds, and seems more of a fun project for the guys instead of a serious band. The band have just released their debut self-titled digitally, which can be streamed in its entirety below. A physical copy will be available soon.
Ben Murray on the band: “Trey and I have started a new band with our friends Ryan Hansen (who played in Light This City with Laura and I) and Bret Fontaine (The Business End) on bass. It is called WILDERNESS DREAM. It’s very different from Heartsounds, but you can hear some of HS in this too, I’d imagine. Regardless, it’s fast and pissed and only requires 14 minutes of your time.”
Wilderness Dream released their self-titled EP today, July 14th, through Murray’s Creator Destructor Records and can be purchased here. A vinyl of the album will be released on October 13, and can be pre-ordered here.
