SIGNS OF THE SWARM drops new video, "DREAMKILLER"; releases new album, 'Amongst the Low & Empty'

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

Today (July 28th), Pittsburgh deathcore unit Signs Of The Swarm has unleashed their fifth full-length, Amongst the Low & Empty, via Century Media Records. For a preview of the record, the new video (directed by Eric DiCarlo) for album track "DREAMKILLER" can be seen at:

Of the song, drummer Bobby Crow says, "'DREAMKILLER' is one of those songs that we wanted to make to turn heads. We had so much fun experimenting with the song in the studio and tried to use every sound in our arsenal to create something unique to Signs of the Swarm. Crushing drums, soaring guitar leads, Guitar Pro sound effects, and Dave's powerful vocals mixed with Carl's melody really make this song stand out on 'Amongst the Low & Empty'."

Vocalist David Simonich continues, "This song reflects on one's doubts hindering their dreams. Dumping my all into painting this picture - something that became literal in the video - it grew to be a powerful track and band favorite. It grew so much, kind of like the little song that could: from that weird melodic one that may not fit, to the single we launch the album with!

The video built on that theme visually, and we're excited to give away the painting from the video - which includes some of my actual blood in the red - in a contest. Keep an eye out for that! And we're beyond ecstatic to get our producer Josh Schroeder as the crazy artists, which really ain't too much of a reach for this mad scientist, just with a different medium than we'd worked with him previously, here. (He's also talented at visual arts, so...) After a few comments pointing out how more bands ought to credit the audio team in music video credits, we figured we'd double his up for this one, haha."
