A press release explains that the album's 11 songs were inspired by life on the road, and the morbid reoccurring dreams that frontman Paul Saulnier had while on tour. The opening instrumental cut is based on a death march contained from one of these dreams.
Death Dreams reportedly finds the band branching out stylistically, and "The songs are longer in length this time around with more unpredictable changes and parts," says the PR. Like Muster Station, the album was recorded with Matt Rogalsky using his portable studio in the band's practice room.
Expect the single "Don't Go," featuring backup vocals from drummer Benjamin Nelson for the first time, to be unveiled soon. For now, check out the cover above and the tracklist below.
