The band set itself apart with an enigmatic and visceral approach to hardcore that was markedly different from the other music of its day, culminating in the release of their last record, Presents, in 2001. That same year, JD hung it up and moved on to pursue other personal projects, and after 17 years, the three friends gravitated back toward the shared belief that JD was a sacred space for them to wholly express themselves.
Fast forward to 2018 when Jeromes Dream announced that they would reunite and write a new record together, despite now living on opposite coasts of the US. The response was overwhelming, with fans from all over the world hailing the reunion. In March 2019 the band entered the studio with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Gouge Away, Loma Prieta) and created a 12-song untitled LP that forges new creative directions, with expanded lyrical content and the compositional maturity that only experience, tragedy, and introspection can usher forth.
