DRAIN - LIVING PROOF
“This is some top-shelf thrashed-out hardcore music.” – Stereogum
“Every Drain song sounds like pouring a case of Mentos into a gallon of cola, dousing it with gasoline and then chucking it into a bonfire.” – Revolver
“Ciaramitaro pens upbeat, sunny anthems that reflect the band’s laid-back California roots, which shows they can be brutal and have some fun” – Alt Press
LIVING PROOF injects a serious dose of relatability—not to mention catchiness—into hardcore’s penchant for toughness and brutality. Produced by longtime friend and multi-instrumentalist Taylor Young (God’s Hate, Suicide Silence) and mixed by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Koyo), this is for anyone looking for some good, friendly, hardcore fun. The highly anticipated follow up to their debut ‘California Cursed’ (2020), the upcoming album and recently announced headlining tour are testaments to the hard work and heartfelt ethos at the center of DRAIN’s good-time psyche.
Stemming from humble DIY beginnings, DRAIN formed in 2014 and built up their scene alongside friends who would go on to form bands like Scowl, Gulch, and Sunami. In the process of paving the way for hardcore to thrive in their beach town of Santa Cruz, CA, they’ve cemented a legacy that transcends their California roots. After releasing two EPs and one full-length record, they signed to Epitaph in 2021 with label debut single “Watch You Burn.” Taking heavy influence from thrash and 80’s/90’s hardcore, they also blend an eclectic mix of modern influences that have been praised by the likes of Stereogum, Revolver, The FADER, BrooklynVegan, Kerrang! and more.
