The day after an acoustic patio set with Liam Titcomb, the Rockwater is changing it up with the hard core rock and metal band, Dreams of Reason.

Based out of Calgary, Dreams of Reason is a creature of the modern music industry, thriving on stage with a reputation for sold-out shows, and mosh pits.

Lead singer Chris Perkins describes his band as “the missing link between Led Zeppelin and Nickelback.”

The band has found tremendous success, taking the stage with acts such as Korn, Billy Talent, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mud, State of Shock, Volbeat, Art of Dying and many more.

They are now touring, promoting their recent release Radically Poetic, recored in Seattle and Los Angeles with heavy metal production wizard Greg Hampton.

Radically Poetic comes from a dark place lyrically, reflecting on personal turmoil that plagued the Calgary band during its two-year development process.

“We were so focused on writing our new album, that we neglected every other aspect of our lives. We lost friends, family, and some band brothers along the way,” said guitarist Alex Whitcombe.

“The new album definitely conveys the sense of urgency we’re known for live,” said Perkins. “Radically Poetic can be a hard pill to swallow on the lyrical side. It’s dark man. But despite the hardships we’ve faced, this is still a recklessly fun Dreams of Reason record.”

Whitcombe and Perkins, along with bassist Trevor Landmark and drummer Chris Skriver, will be playing at Golden’s Rockwater Grill and Bar on Saturday Sept. 1. Go to www.dreamsofreason.com to hear their music.

Don’t forget, tickets are still on sale for Sloan, coming to the Rockwater on Friday Sept. 7, and 54/40, coming to the Rockwater on Saturday Sept. 15.
