Biography

Born from the ashes of legendary punk and hardcore acts Guiltripp, Sailor Punch, Millitant Intervention, Eji, and Extra stout, Killing The Dream formed in late 2002 when Eli (vocals), Isaac (drums), and Chris (bass) hooked up with Joel (guitar) and started practicing sparsely in between their collective 233456 other bands' schedules. Back then, practice consisted mostly of covering Kid Dynamite's "Shiner," writing songs that never saw the light of day, and Joel singing fantasy metal songs about the ancient forest of elves. In early 2003, while Embrace The End (Joel's other band) was on hiatus, the band was able to practice more often and write songs that would eventually wind up on the demo.

In April of 2003 they recorded a five song demo with Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate in Oakland. Unfortunately, Eli developed problems with his throat and the band was put on hold for a few months. Finally, after a long four months, and the addition of Bart on second guitar, Eli's throat got better and in August, the demo was finally done. The first show was on September 26, 2003 with friends and label mates Time For Living, plus Lights Out and Cross the Line. After playing a few more local shows, the band headed up on a short trip to the northwest, and shortly thereafter hooked up with Rival Records. Expect the bands' debut 7"/CDEP in early 2004, with plenty more shows and tours to follow.

After releasing a fantastic 7″EP/CD on Rivalry in 2004, Killing The Dream made Deathwish their new label home. In 2005, the band released their “I Rewrote It” 7″EP on Deathwish to praise from hardcore kids worldwide.

In early 2005, Killing The Dream travelled to Godcity Studios to record their “In Place Apart” album with Kurt Ballou (Converge). In it’s final form, “In Place Apart” became a moving 12 song journey into the shattered heart and soul of its creators. The album was praised by aggressive music press worldwide as one of the best releases of 2005. The release was even declared “The best hardcore album of the year” by AP.

In support of the release, Killing The Dream played shows all over the U.S. and even toured Japan. Since then, Killing The Dream have played shows locally while focusing on writing their follow up album, “Fractures”.
