The Dreaming is an American rock band that was founded in the Hollywood area in 2002 by Johnny Haro and Christopher Hall, the former lead singer of the band “Stabbing Westward.”

The band, which is similar in tone to “Stabbing Westward,” but given a heavier dose of electro-metal, began almost immediately after the former band’s demise.  Hall and Haro began working on tracks for the group and by 2003 released a live debut album and shortly after, an eponymous debut EP.  A second EP, “The Bonus Tracks, followed in 2005.  In 2006, the EP, “Dreamo,” was released which featured Hall and Jinxx re-interpreting four of the groups songs with both acoustic guitar and violin.  The group released their fourth EP, “Club Re-Mixes” in 2007.

2008 saw the release of the bands debut album, “Etched in Blood,” followed by a three month headlining tour, as well as a co-headlining tour with fellow industrial alt-metal rockers “Flaw.”  The band’s second album, “The Puppet,” followed in 2011 and in 2014, “Stabbing Westward” keyboardist Walter Flakus joined the group and made his debut with the band on their third studio album, “Rise Again,” which was released through Metropolis Records in 2015.

This group has done well despite the constant changing of members throughout the years.  With the recent addition of Walter Flakus, there are now three members in “The Dreaming” who were previously in “Stabbing Westward.”  If their newest album, “Rise Again,” is any indication, I’d say the band is heading in the right direction.
