    Exclusive Album Art Cover and Album Details Reveal: Dream Alive, "Before the Dawn" - See it here!

    We've got a Monday morning visual (and more) for you!

    ARTISTdirect has partnered with Dream Alive to exclusively reveal the cover art for their album Before the Dawn.

    Los Angeles-based rock band Dream Alive --Nik Phoeniks (lead vocals / keyboard), Ramon Ryder (rhythm guitar / vocals), Karan Parikh (lead guitar / vocals), Martin Fredriksson (bass) and Stanley Love (drums)-- will release the album, their debut, on July 29. But we've got the scoop on the album art and the album details, right here and right now.

    Before the Dawn features eight soaring tracks that run the gamut from psychedelic to cinematic, merging the band's classic rock roots in Journey and Pink Floyd and their modern rock influences of Muse and Coldplay.

    "To say it was a blast making this album would be a huge understatement," says Phoeniks. "We worked hard and we pushed each other to reach that 'A-ha' moment that we search for in every song. We are incredibly proud of all the songs on Before the Dawn, and hope you'll enjoy the album as much as we did making it!"

    "The album title Before the Dawn refers to facing your demons and eventually conquering them. 'The night is darkest before dawn' is a concept we discussed a lot during the writing and recording process that heavily influenced us," said Ryder. "The thought that if you can hold out long enough until the sun comes out, everything will be fine, and is reflected on the album cover art. The lone figure standing facing the cloudy night sky as the light breaks through in the distance shows the beauty that each new day brings."

    Now, go look at the album cover with that in mind!
