Dreaming Awake announces tours with Convulsions and Varsity

Arizona metalcore outfit Dreaming Awake have announced two spring tours in support of their upcoming record Friction Lives. The first, dubbed the Hell In The Desert Tour, will be with Convulsions; that run kicks off in early April. Then, the group will join Varsity on The Escape Route Tour, replacing Curses as support (all dates including those with Curses are shared below). Vocalist Vaughn Bell stated:

“We’ve put the last two years of our lives into making this album, and we’re so excited to be able finally get it out there, and essentially experience the album together with our fans. There’s a ton of places on both of these tours together, but I’m personally most interested in checking out Roswell, NM, because aliens are rad.”

Bassist/singer Julienne Cordero adds:

“This tour is definitely what we were hoping for, seeing this band grow so much was quite an experience from not only an outside perspective, but to now be part of the process is mind blowing and I’m proud of what we’ve become, I’m confident this tour will be great. Can’t wait to get out there and start sharing our love and this music with everyone.”
