The Drowns 2021 Promo 300x300, Pirates Press Records

For the bands that really make a difference, there are releases that prove to be the proverbial ‘tipping point’ – taking them to another level, exposing them to giant new waves of fans… “Under Tension“ definitely had its game-changing moments – but ultimately was hampered by a pandemic hell-bent on preventing this band from taking those tracks across the globe with serious gusto!

….This record, oh, this record… an EP at that, is without a doubt the one that will prove to be that game-changing moment for the vast majority within earshot. It includes epic ballads and heart-wrenching, truly game-changing barn-burning life-altering tunes, for TODAY.

This is the real deal. If you’re into PUNK, you are into this band, and this record is epic!

The power and presence that this band will throw in your face in every way, at every opportunity is an extension of “Under Tension” – Profound, somewhat intimidating, and most importantly – overwhelmingly welcoming… and noble! Best get out of the way, or better yet, sign up and join the fight!
