Dreamland Completes New Album

The third album is usually labelled "make it or break it", but it's rarely meant this literal: Sweden's DREAMLAND had survived a car-crash to finish their upcoming album. The accident happened when three members of the band were on their way to Andy LaRocque's new Sonic Train Studios outside of Gothenburg, where they are almost finished recording the follow-up to 2007's "Eye For An Eye." The album will be released in March.
