Dreams Of Vertigo was originally an acoustic project by Doug Ferguson (vocals/guitar) and founded on the beliefs of making music with one rule: no limits. Established in 2012, the quartet released their EP Lies and Alibis in June 2012 and quickly gained a following. Orange County, CA rock band Dreams of Vertigo released their new track/video “(Un)Easy Goodbye” in the summer of 2016, which is from their upcoming release Reject University, Pt. 2: From Six 2 Midnight, due out October 14, 2016. An ​”​(Un​​)Easy Goodbye” was prompted when vocalist Doug Ferguson saw a man high up on a freeway sign, ready to jump. Police vehicles were pulled up in a circle around the structure, trying to convince the man to not end it all. Moved by that, Ferguson wrote the song, which deals with issues of depression and suicide. Their sophomore EP Reject University Part One: Freshman 15 was distributed through Sony and featured the single “Head vs. Heart”, a collaboration with Mike Herrera of MxPx.

Doug Ferguson states that “Writing this record was a different process from Part One. With Part One, we just said “well we need to write a record, how about this song”. With Part 2, we just kept writing. We must have written 20 songs, or skeletons as we call them. In the end, what we did is picked the ones that flowed the best, the ones that we liked the most. It’s a really dark record. It wasn’t intentionally done that way, thats just how the songs came out. I think the songs were a reflection of what we were going through at the time. Losing a member, dropping our label, finding a new member, etc… All the ups and downs behind the scenes of the band came through on this record. Musically its harder, its faster, its more melodic. Lyrically we really went all out. It’s a very honest record, and we are all very proud of it. I think we tried things that we never thought we would have the ability to try. That’s such a cool thing, but also scary because we know our fans have never heard some of this stuff from us.”
