Following their explosive debut song “No One Defeats Us,” DREAMS have dropped their new track “Silence” today via Astralwerks. On the day of their first ever live performance at Coachella, “Silence” reveals a darker side and pulse to DREAMS, led by the brooding vocals of Daniel Johns. The duo also shares a striking video for the track, which can be viewed HERE.

A much-anticipated debut live set at Coachella this weekend promises high drama and a truly unmissable performance. The only band ever to be booked for the festival before releasing any music, the duo is the highest-billed Australian band. DREAMS will perform tonight at 8:40pm on the Mojave Stage. The duo will also perform next Friday, April 20. Fans can view their performance via the live stream on the Official Coachella YouTube Channel.

“Silence’ is a song which came to us after the Charlottesville riots. It broke our hearts to see the violence and hatred that occurred. We wanted this song to elevate the people, let their voices be heard, inspire them with courage and bravery.” Luke Steele (aka Miracle) says of the track. Daniel Johns (aka Dr Dreams), says “The live version is out of this world and we cannot wait to debut it at Coachella. »

DREAMS is the realization of a long-time friendship and musical kinship between these two iconic Australian artists. Daniel Johns is best known as the front man of Silverchair whilst the enigmatic Luke Steele fronts Empire of The Sun and The Sleepy Jackson. The artists first met in 2004 when Luke’s band The Sleepy Jackson supported Silverchair on their sold-out Diorama tour.

With over ten million albums sold worldwide and an undefeatable twenty-nine ARIA Awards won between both of their respective acts, the pedigree of Daniel and Luke’s new collaboration is unquestionable.

Since Silverchair’s debut release “Tomorrow” in 1994, Daniel has taken home a record twenty-one statues, the most of any Australian artist in ARIA history. Daniel has also won APRA Songwriter of the Year three times, and impressively, Silverchair is the only Australian act to have all of their studio albums, five in total, debut at #1 on the ARIA chart.

Sweeping the ARIAs clean in 2008 was Luke Steele’s Empire of the Sun, taking home gongs for Best Album, Best Single, Best Group and Best Pop Release. With a total of eight ARIAs and two APRA song writing awards to date, Empire of the Sun has gone from strength to strength internationally, including a spectacular sold out performance at Hollywood Bowl in 2015, in front of an audience of 17,000 US fans.
