“‘Crying While You’re Dancing‘ is about those people you know who pretend to have the time of their lives while it’s clear to everyone around them that they’re spiraling.”

Dayseeker Premiere New Song “Dreamstate”

Dayseeker have premiered a new song titled “Dreamstate.” This track is from the band’s new album “Dark Sun,” which will be released on November 4. Vocalist Rory Rodriguez commented:

“‘Dreamstate‘ is about my experiences in dreaming of my father, who passed last July and truly feeling like we were communicating while it was happening. It was a beautiful thing to experience on one hand… but also very heartbreaking and disorienting with my sense of reality on the other.”

Dayseeker Premiere “Without Me” Music Video

Dayseeker have premiered a new video for their new song “Without Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “Dark Sun,” which will be released on November 4.

Rory Rodriguez said the following about the song:

“‘Without Me‘ is about an old relationship that died and how it begged to ask the question: ‘How do you feel the same without me as a part of their life?”

He also added the following about the album:

”Dark Sun‘ is a collection of songs that deeply explored my personal life over the last two years. Most of it is written about my father’s passing, about how it felt like the sun burned out the day he passed, and how the world is a little darker without him in it.”

Dayseeker To Release Deluxe Edition Of “Sleeptalk”, Share Video For Reimagined Version Of “Burial Plot”

Dayseeker will be digitally releasing a deluxe version of their latest album “Sleeptalk” on September 24 (vinyl out December 3). The effort will include the original album tracks, as well as reimagined versions of several songs. A video for a reimagined version of “Burial Plot” featuring Seneca Pettee can be found below:

Frontman Rory Rodriguez said the following about the new take on the track:

“It was so cool getting to work with Daniel Braunstein again and I think we really challenged ourselves to try some different genres and styles of reimagining that we’ve never done on any of our prior deluxe releases. ‘Burial Plot (Reimagined)’ is a deeply personal song I hold very near to my heart and I always thought it would be really interesting to hear it done as a duet. Seneca Pettee was the obvious choice since she already sang on ‘Starving to Be Empty’ on the original album. The strings and piano we added really made it just sound like an entirely different song.”

“Sleeptalk” Deluxe Edition Track Listing:

01. “Drunk”
02. “Crooked Soul”
03. “Burial Plot”
04. “Sleeptalk”
05. “The Embers Glow”
06. “The Color Black”
07. “Already Numb”
08. “Gates of Ivory”
09. “Starving to Be Empty”
10. “Crash and Burn”
11. “Drunk” (Reimagined)
12. “Burial Plot” (Reimagined)
13. “Crooked Soul” (Reimagined)
14. “Sleeptalk” (Reimagined)

Police Find Dayseeker’s Stolen Van

As previously reported, Dayseeker’s van, trailer, and gear were stolen late last year while the band were in Fullerton, CA. However, the trailer was eventually recovered and police have since found the van as well. Unfortunately, the gear was never recovered. Despite this, the band think they raised enough money on GoFundMe to cover the rest.
