Le Reverie rocks . . . plain and simple. Remember, your precognitive penman was one of the first to tout the torrid, tuneful talents of Le Reverie and also note the numerous possibilities in their often macabre music. Now the rest of the world is starting to catch up with yours truly as the L.A.-based Goth-metal band’s “Le Reverie (The Dream)” has been chosen as the theme song for the upcoming horror movie thriller Lake Eerie starring veteran actor Lance Henriksen. But first, for those not up on their indie artists, Le Reverie is: Allie Jorgen (lead vocals and songwriting), Roc (drums, electronics and songwriting), Jeff Mallow (guitar) and Daniele De Cario (bass and keyboards).
“Le Reverie (The Dream)” aka "The Dream" was specifically selected for the film Lake Eerie which was written and directed respectively by Meredith and Chris Majors and is set for a summer 2014 release. The film focuses on a young widow who moves into an old house on Lake Erie to recover from her spouse's sudden death. The woman quickly becomes enveloped in a wicked whirlwind of terror and tragedy and must defend herself and discover the dark truth before it is too late.
“Le Reverie (The Dream)” is off their noteworthy disc Dark Symphony. It’s the band’s theme song and serves as an apt intro to the band’s signature sound which is a musical mélange of metal, Goth, prog rock and classical symphony. In Jorgen’s own words: their music is “powerful and able to reach people on an emotional level. It is about everyday situations that we all go through and not sugar coated.”
The band is very excited to be involved in this project. Jorgen took time out from her busy schedule to discuss the event.
Jorgen stated: “Le Reverie is very honored to have (the) song ‘The Dream’ selected as the theme song for the new Gothic thriller movie Lake Eerie. Lake Eerie is an amazing Gothic thriller created in the style of the true classic horror films. We are proud to be part of such an incredible team!”
My name is Phoenix and . . . that’s the bottom line.
