Today sees the release of 'Question Everything', the new single and video from Swiss melodic metal giants Dreamshade. The band are about to embark on a European tour along with Don Broco and Emarosa, they’ll be heading down to South Africa in February for their second nationwide with hardcore heavy hitters Truth and Its Burden.
The song and video are a little different to what you are used to from the band as they explain, “This is a very unusual song for our repertoire. We never made something similar before and we are really excited to share it with our audience. I think they will be quite surprised!”
They go on to add, “Question Everything was inspired by the present situation of the music industry: There are a lot of good artists out there but only some of them will eventually make it and this is not only up to them. Sometimes it's somebody else who has the power to turn a regular artist into a successful one. Money is at the very core of it. You can find yourself ahead of the curve but be completely forgotten soon after. We really believe that music speaks for itself. To those who listen it doesn't really matter if a project is backed by an incredible budget or not. Our aim was to describe all of this with a funny and ironic scenario on the video set. We had so much fun! You'll roll on the floor laughing watching it"
