California's Killing The Dream were an inspiring and passionate hardcore band. Embodying the same positive emotion found in contemporaries Comeback Kid and Bane, their approach also paid tribute to legends Unbroken and Chain Of Strength.
Over a year in the making, "Fractures" was engineered by J. Robbins at Magpie Studios (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). When vocalist Eli Horner erupts with "...This isn't what I hoped I'd have to say..." in "Part II", hair stands on end, charged with emotion. Unorthodox heaviness and raw melodies cut and crack the abrasive surface in songs like "Consequence" and "Resolution". While songs like "Holding The Claws" and "Fractures" showcase the band's evolution. Proving that you can progress and mature within the hardcore world, without ever having to leave it behind.
