Press Release From Lightning Records
Distopian Dreams busted on to the scene in 2013 with the release of their first album "Gazing into the Abyss", the album rocketing up the charts, lead by the release of the single "Sleepless Nightmares". After their successful tour with Beast Rising in 2014, lead singer Eddie Starr lead his band back into the studio to work on their follow up album. It took over a year, but finally, in October of 2016, "Dante's Descent" was released to rave reviews. Distopian Dreams had a second hit album for their sophomore release, with the number of sales bypassing those of "Gazing" within the first month of release. The band is currently preparing for their headlining tour, expect to begin in late 2017.
"I do wish Eddie would concentrate more on his classical and operatic roots rather than on his more 'modern' work, though I am pleased that Distopian Dreams releases their work on vinyl, it would be a shame if they robbed the world of the quality and purity of analog recordings." - Soheil Aurelius Shaykh Isfahani
Stacee Jaxx - Rock of Ages (2012) - "...I sell out all right. Every seat, every stadium I ever play.."
Jim Morisson - The Doors - "Listen, real poetry doesn’t say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through any one that suits you."
Roy Khan - Kamelot singer (1998 - 2011)
Has multiple children across the U.S. from his tours before his embrace.
Before her embrace, Octavia Lyn worked for Eddie as the band’s “Merch Girl”. This menial task was a slight to her talents as an influence ghoul, and she never forgave him for it. Although they fake civil, they do not get along.
Stone Sour - Hydrograd - "I'm not better than you, I'm just better!"

Looking for (ties/contacts)
Anarchs/Independents: Eddie tries to keep contacts in both the other groups, organizing meetings/deals between Elders/Ancilla in the Cam that do not want to be seen working with them. Looking for both sides of this, whether your the person that needed contact or the person that Eddie payed boons to to organize the get together.
Lovers/Ex-es/groupies (both pre and post embrace): Looking for most any of these. Were they lovers that ended badly? Were you simply a fan of the band that wanted to find out more about the lead singer? Maybe you didn't realize he was a vampire and thought you were going to get a snack?
Friends - Everyone needs more friends - Again, really looking for both Anarchs and Independents
Rivals - Are you a Toreador whose art is singing? Are you looking for someone to believe to be your rival? or maybe your another Son/Daughter who thinks it is silly that this talented singer is wasting their talent with this band...
