Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Rough Dreams initially formed in the summer of 2018 as a side project by singer/guitarist Jake Jones and drummer Paul Lowe. The idea was to create a sound reminiscent of late 90’s/early 2000’s emo with a pinch of grunge and shoegaze. The band quickly became the prime focus and soon found themselves a full lineup with enough songs to record and hit the road. The band recruited ex-Swellers vocalist, Nick Diener and Whitechapel guitarist Zach Householder to help engineer what would become their debut 4 song EP. After releasing the record on Knoxville based indie label Coffin Curse Records in the winter of 2019, Rough Dreams immediately hit the road in support of the record. After clocking in 50 shows across the Midwest, Southeast, and east coast United States that first year, Rough Dreams then signed on with Atlanta, GA based 59 X Records. In the summer of 2020, the band set out to record a covers e.p. comprised of emo/post-hardcore songs from the early 2000’s era. The e.p., titled ‘From The Graves Of Better Days’ was released on February 5, 2021. On September 24, 2021, Rough Dreams released their debut full length album DISAPPEAR. REAPPEAR. via 59X Records.
