D.R.E.A.D. is a very driven and determined, high-energy, heart-pounding, non-stop, in-your-face true heavy metal band. Pulling influence from all genres of metal, they have developed their own raunchy, thrashy, groovy metal with a southern melodic twist. Founded in 2008, D.R.E.A.D. played their first show in May of 2009 and has developed a strong fan base at home as well as a strong regional fan base along the Gulf Coast. D.R.E.A.D has independently toured the country six times, played over four hundred shows, and released three albums with the most recent "Test Of Time" in June 2015. D.R.E.A.D. has opened for several national acts: D.R.I., In This Moment, Static-X, Anvil, Goatwhore, Hellyeah, All That Remains, Bam Margera, Crowbar, Green Jelly, Warbeast, Straight Line Stitch, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Psychostick , Adrenaline Mob, and more. We hold nothing back with every show we play as we push to be a force in the metal community.
