I Have Dreams

Oh shit, look at that. Its three days 'til Christmas. I Have Dreams were an oldschool emotional post-hardcore band from the '90s. I don't know where they were from. Last.Fm told me this:
I Have Dreams was a screamo/emo band born from the ashes of a band called New Ethic, when their guitar player Daniel died in a car accident. New Ethic played their last show in August, 1998 with Daniel’s best friend Mike Hanson in his place, and it was about a month or two later that I Have Dreams started playing. The band consisted of Allen Compton and Mike Peters on vocals, Mike Hanson on guitar, Ben Seals on bass and Clayton Rychlick on drums.

I Have Dreams were more than a band - in the words of Mike Peters: “It was an attempt to cope with the pain everyone was feeling after Daniel’s death.”

I Have Dreams were together for roughly six months, and they broke up in the Spring (around April/May) of 1999.

I don't know what the deal is with buying their stuff. I would imagine it is hard to find their one release. Below is their only album with a remastered version. Check out the dope live set. Oh yea:
"I don't imagine you and I walking in the sun or holding hands anymore, but I can see your name burning in the stars and in the same sky I once floated above in. Now I can't look at the picture any longer, so I gave it back to you with a note attached saying how I felt. Do you remember that day we cried on your floor? Well I haven't stopped crying since. So where are your promises now? Your promises of forever and everything else. Not quite a fairytale ending. You have caused me the most pain I have ever felt in my life." - I Don't Imagine You And I Anymore

Not sure where you found the downloads, but I downloaded the album and later found a fully remastered version of the album. Great band.
