The Drowns Premiere New Video For “Black Lung”
All of us at PIRATES PRESS RECORDS are so excited to present to you the video for “BLACK LUNG” by THE DROWNS! Shot (pre-quarantine) at the band’s local record store, Seattle’s GEORGETOWN RECORDS, watching this video after the past six months seems like a reminder of a world that’s just out of reach…meeting up with friends, rolling out to the record store, and checking out killer live bands! It’s the world we all dearly miss, as we hope for its eventual return!
THE DROWNS‘ 2020 has certainly been a mixed bag. They began the year by putting out UNDER TENSION, a truly incredible LP primed to propel them to the next level. They were gearing up for a springtime and beyond of heavy touring and all the excitement that goes along with bringing new music to people all over the country and the world in a live setting. And then…everybody had to stay home indefinitely. Which, sadly, brings us right up to the present. The band members have kept busy with livestream shows and maintaining an inspiring and positive attitude, but there’s no getting around the fact that seeing such plans unceremoniously scuttled by a situation bigger than all of us is, frankly, a bummer.
However, unavoidable global crises aside, nothing can take away the fact that this hardworking band from the Pacific Northwest put all the considerable passion and talent at their disposal into making a truly extraordinary record that still deserves celebration. Look at this video in the spirit of celebrating what we had before, and someday will get back!
