The Great Escape - Music & More

DRAIN the Santa Cruz, CA based hardcore band, whose energetic live shows have propelled them to peak underground popularity (during a globalpandemic) and they are ready to break wide open in 2023.

Living Proof is the bands Epitaph Records debut and follow up to their 2020 breakout release, California Cursed. The new album is a testament to thehard work and heartfelt ethos thats at the center of DRAINs good-time psyche. There are a couple surprises on the album. Rapper Shakewell appearson the track, Intermission. Theres also a cover of Good, Good Things, a nearly four-decade old melodic punk carol by the Descendents: slam-pitforebearers to DRAIN if there ever were any. Its crazy because the songs been out like forty years, but lyrically its a DRAIN song! exclaims vocalistSam Ciaramitaro. It just hits on everything that I love, that Im about.

What Sammys about is plenty wholesome. I hope with this record that when someone hears it, it gives them hope, beams. If we were able to getthrough the tough times, anyone can. I cant wait to play these songs and hear a room full of people singing back to us. Were what the title says, theLiving Proof.

Produced by longtime friend and multi-instrumentalist Taylor Young (Gods Hate, Suicide Silence), then mixed by John Markson (Drug Church, Koyo),this is hardcore for everybody. As the band gets bigger, I try and keep that feeling alive, says the smiling singer. Every night I set up the merch and runit until its time to play. I want to be the guy that everyone says hello to. I want to thank every single kid that comes out for being there.
