Singled Out: Dreams Of Vertigo's An (Un)Easy Goodbye

Dreams Of Vertigo

Dreams of Vertigo's Doug Ferguson tells us about the "An (Un)Easy Goodbye" from their forthcoming EP "Reject University Part 2: From Six 2 Midnight". Here is the story:

Hate, anger, depression, and thoughts of suicide. All emotions that unfortunately plague millions of Americans. It was spring 2015 when singer Doug was heading to the small city of Temecula to visit his parents. As he was approaching the on ramp, he noticed a bunch of police cars making rapid U-Turns. As he got onto the freeway he noticed something. A man, in his 20s, hanging on the sign on the freeway over pass. Doug passed slowly and looked on. The man was at his lowest point in his life. sitting on the sign, ready to jump at any minute. Ready to end his life in the blink of an eye. Doug started to think... what was it that made this man so sad? What made him want to end his life? He got to his parents house, and jotted down some lyrics, thinking out loud to himself what this mans back story was. How he got there, etc... He then thought about all his friends who had battled depression. Some of them not making it.

"An (Un)Easy Goodbye" is that story. The life of a man, at the end of his life. Reflecting on his past mistakes, and what his life really meant. "An (Un)Easy Goodbye" can be found on the new EP from Dreams of Vertigo entitled "Reject University Part 2: From Six 2 Midnight" out on October 14th.

The recording process was quite fun with this song. We knew this song was going to be different from anything we had ever recorded, which was why we wanted to do it. We wanted big guitars, and huge vocals. Gonz came up with the bass riff a long time ago for another band he was in years ago. He said, it just wasn't the right fit for any other band he was in. It was definitely one of those songs where each member pushed each other to the limit. I think it's the most experimental song we have ever done. We hope that it speaks to people. We hope that we can connect with someone who may have problems with a similar issue. We hope that this song can reach people and make an impact on their life.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
