The American Dream – the third album in the TrophyEyes collection – is based on the idea that there’s still utopia left on this planet – a place where one can start again and live a peaceful life, forsaking the trail of destruction that threatened to derail it all.
The album also serves as a coming of age fable, in which lead vocalist John Floreani takes an introspective look at who he is today. His story is brought to life in vivid colour with string arrangements produced by Chris Craker, who can list the soundtrack to Hans Zimmer’s score of “Interstellar” and Hans Zimmer “The Classics” on his production resume.
“This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” Floreani explains. “As much of the other TrophyEyes works have been the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.”
The American Dream follows on from their critically acclaimed 2016 album Chemical Miracle, which debuted at #8 in Australia and was a significant launch pad for the band as they dominated Australia with back-to-back tours sold out months in advance in some of the biggest rooms in the country. TrophyEyes also went on to conquer the globe with headline tours in North America and the UK, both slapping sold out signs on box offices around their respective territories.
TrophyEyes now leads a new wave in rock music, blending their punk and hard-core roots with modern rock and pop sensibilities. Known for their brutally honest and emotional storytelling and lyricism combined with one of the most energetic live shows on the circuit, TrophyEyes are set to takeover with the drop of The American Dream on August 3.
The band is set to tour across North America this fall with more dates to be announced. A full list of dates and cities can be found below. The American Dream is now available for pre-order.
