In 2017, four northern New Jersey-based musicians left their former projects behind to form CONCRETE DREAM, a hip-hop/EDM/hardcore metal crossover project exuding a distinct, raw, yet accessible power and clean execution previously unmatched by any artist in the scene. Do not mistake this band for another local - the self-described "trap-metal" quartet are on another level - crafting potent, consistent anthems that will have listeners singing along while still hitting hard as nails. 

 

CONCRETE DREAM's debut EP, Inverse., is scheduled to hit retailers on June 22, 2018. Pre-orders for the EP are coming soon, but you can order their brand new single, "Catch 22", right now here.

 

After tapping the keen production talents of This or the Apocalypse-vocalist-turned-producer Ricky Armellino for the EP, their infectious sound reached the ears of New York hardcore legend Lord Ezec (Crown of Thornz, Skarhead, Danny Diablo), who quickly signed them to his new label, E-Train Records.

 

"I met Jeremiah Mayhem and immediately liked him," says Lord Ezec, who signed the band earlier this year to E-Train Records. "He was genuine. He was real. He was like a younger version of me. Once he played me the music I was blown away. I met the band and saw a real tight unit. They care about their music and the message. Their live show says it all and that's why I knew I needed to sign them. I want to help advance them to get their voices heard."

 

CONCRETE DREAM just dropped their first music video for the new single "Catch 22", directed by Will Photo and filmed in multiple locations in Hudson County, New Jersey. The hooky, addictive trap and EDM-influenced track features electrifying guitar riffs and a beat that will have your head bobbing in no time. Watch the video for "Catch 22" here, exclusively via Alternative Press live premiere on Facebook.

 

The sonic effect of CONCRETE DREAM reveals equal parts mercy and power as the lyrical and melodic top-lines takes the listener through the power struggles of life. "The story of 'Catch 22' is about a hard-working guy whose whole world is crashing," says vocalist Jeremiah Mayhem. "We get so consumed with the losses in front of us, it destroys us. The video shows that your life is not defined by your job, or your girlfriend. It's worth your life to live beyond those things. The catch 22 happens, everyone suffers, but we can survive."

 

"All of the songs on the EP are about struggle," adds Jeremiah. "It is about a cycle in most people's lives - we love something, we lose it, mess it up, or it leaves us, then we feel pain, and then we find a way to escape the pain. Then we repeat, again and again. This negative to positive cycle drives us forward, and we're inspired by both the good and the bad."
