Swiss melodic metal masters Dreamshade have revealed a new single “Shanghai Nights”, taken from their forthcoming album “A Pale Blue Dot” which is set for release on the 5th March 2021 . It’s the second track they have shared from the new album after Lightbringers, which the band released late last year. The track which shows exactly why Dreamshade are at the top of their game, is a groove driven ode to tour life and the opportunities it has given the guys. You can listen to the single below:
Frontman Kevin Calì delves deeper into the meaning and inspiration behind the song. “The idea of the song came out while we were touring China last year. We’ve been there 3 times before and wanted to create a Rock’n’Roll-ish track about life on tour: The travels, the shows, the relationship with our fans and the party. The song is about that nostalgic moment we live when the tour is over and it’s time to go back home. We always feel a hole in our chest on our way back, the type of feeling you get when you leave someone you love. We sit on the plane and think about all the people we’ve met, with the awareness that what we do is not only important to us but involves an ever-wider circle of people.
Since part of our life is on the road, we tried to capture that very essence in a poetic way to help the listener live through our experience. Me and the boys come from a very small town in southern Switzerland and traveling the World gives us experiences that we could hardly live otherwise. Really can’t wait to meet and hug all of our fans at shows like we used to do!”
