With anticipation building toward the release of their upcoming self-titled album, metal powerhouse MyChildren MyBride are excited to announce the “Dreamcatchers” Interactive Nightmare – an interactive experience that will allow fans to unlock elements of the song “Dreamcatchers.”
The immersive experience finds fans waking up in a mysterious room and needing to escape. Following perilous paths, the decisions fans make will either move them along to the next step of the adventure or lead to their death.
Upon dying, fans will be treated to a segment of “Dreamcatchers”, meaning that the only way to unlock each segment of the song is to explore the myriad choices that the adventure presents. Upon successful completion, fans will be prompted to restart the adventure in order to unlock new music.
“With the release of ‘Dreamcatchers’ we really wanted to try something new and different, something that would make our fans conspire together and act as a community,” frontman Matthew Hasting excitedly explains. “So please, throughout Facebook, YouTube and Twitter work together to figure out the challenge that lies ahead. Choose your fate wisely and listen closely to everything you see. You will soon hear the final song before our album is released.”
MyChildren MyBride is available now for preorder with mutliple incentives including “mystery gifts” ranging from autographed tour laminate from one of the band’s past tours all the way up to an autographed guitar that was used during recording of the new album!
For MyChildren MyBride, the self-titled album represents a new chapter for the band, and stamps the advent of a refined sound the members have been chasing since MCMB‘s inception. “That’s exactly what this album is, a new beginning,” says guitarist Robert Bloomfield. “I really do feel we found our sound. It’s definitely MCMB still, but with this new flare that we’ve all loved and understood but never figured out a way to translate it to our music. I feel like everything we’ve done as a band all comes together in this one record. It’s the best album in our career so far.”
Recorded with esteemed producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall), MyChildren MyBride finds the band reaching deep mentally and emotionally for what is without a doubt their crowning achievement thus far, a hard-hitting, experimental, cinematic opus that will set a fire in the hearts of old and new fans alike. With a no-holds-barred approach to programming and effects, and good, old-fashioned brutal riffage – not to mention a new level of dynamics from frontman Matthew Hasting – MyChildren MyBride have boldly redefined themselves for this new chapter of their career.
