Hot off its North American trek supporting MASTODON and GOJIRALORNA SHORE is now giving fans a new video for “Welcome Back, O’ Sleeping Dreamer”, the opening track from 2022’s “Pain Remains” album. The clip, which was directed and edited by Eric Richter and produced by Paul Henon of Midvessel.

LORNA SHORE guitarist Adam De Micco comments: “‘Welcome Back O’ Sleeping Dreamer’ is a song that we feel deserves as much of the light as any other song on ‘Pain Remains’. It was a pivotal song in the writing process — it was the song to get the momentum going for the rest of the record. It was the song that we had the most enjoyment writing and I think to this day is probably one of our favorite songs on the record. It’s as dark as it is light and it’s as intense while not being overbearing. It has become the closest thing to balance as far as our songs are concerned. It is also a song that encapsulates a lot of who we are as a band while being unique from the rest of the songs on ‘Pain Remains’.

“Working with Eric was something that we have been wanting to do for some time now,” Adam continued. “He has always been someone we would reference or were inspired by so it only made sense to do a video with him. It was also a unique experience for us this time because we were in the trenches with him making decisions on everything regarding the video. As an artist you want to see your vision come to light and working with Eric this way, we were able to bring that vision forward.”

Additionally, a new exclusive limited colored vinyl (limited to 1000 units, with etching on side B) for “…And I Return To Nothingness”, plus merch, is available now at lornashorestore.com.

Adam De Micco (guitar) comments: “I don’t think anyone of us could predict what the EP would have done for this band as well as us as individuals. Those three songs allowed us to do things we would have only dreamed of. We are extremely grateful for everything that came from this EP and want to celebrate its anniversary. Thank you for finding yourself in this body of work the way we have. Thank you for everything.”

Since the release of “…And I Return To Nothingness”LORNA SHORE has continued to take the music world by storm — most recently by appearing at some of the biggest festivals across Europe, before they kick off the second leg of their North American tour with metal heavyweights MASTODON and GOJIRA next week.

LORNA SHORE will return to Europe this November/December for a headlining tour, featuring RIVERS OF NIHILINGESTED and DISTANT as support.

LORNA SHORE recruited singer Will Ramos (MONUMENT OF A MEMORY, ex-A WAKE IN PROVIDENCE) in 2021 following the departure of the band’s previous vocalist, CJ McCreery.

LORNA SHORE drummer Austin Archey told Cleveland Scene that he and his bandmates were aware of Ramos‘s skills because A WAKE IN PROVIDENCE had played some shows with LORNA SHORE.

“We just knew he was this dude who looks super young,” Archey said of Ramos. “But when we lost our old vocalist, I reached out to him. I didn’t know if he’d be interested. He was all in. Seven years into a career, it’s hard to find someone with that dedication. He was very prepared. I think he prepared his whole life for this. His first long tour with us was a two-week stretch. He hadn’t done anything like that. It was remarkable to see him step up from the ashes and become bigger than all of us.”
