Jeromes Dream was a screamo band from Connecticut. Singer Jeff Smith didn't use a microphone during live sets, he just screamed the crap out of his lungs unamplified. They played 10-minutes-long sets because Jeff thought such was the time necessary to get their point across. "Jeromes Dream cannot be described in words by any means. It is the sound of your id, your unconscious train of thought, battling with your consciousness. An introverted explosion. A dream." On their second full length, "Presents", Jeff talked and sang through an effect processor; they say Jeff made this choice because of vocal chord damage after long hours of repeated screams on stage. After Jeromes Dream, Jeff Smith formed the drone band Wind-Up Bird with Joseph Grimm. Erik Ratensperger now plays drums in the band Best Inventions and runs NYC streetwear label Mishka. Guitarist Nick Antonopoulos states that the band devised their name from the film Gattaca.
