After much anticipation from fans around the world, Seattle rockers THE DROWNS have released “Blacked Out,” the first single and title track from their upcoming album. Listeners can stream the track on their favorite platform here. The album “Blacked Out” will drop on February 16, 2024 on Pirates Press Records.
“‘Blacked Out’ is about our crazy lives as nonstop touring musicians,” says frontman Rev. “It’s a crazy life that we wouldn’t change for the world. I get to travel the world with my three best friends.”
To get the word out quickly about the single, Pirates Press Records made 5000 “Blacked Out” picture flexis! You can get them for free with any purchase on our webstore and will soon be found at local record stores and on The Drowns’ merch table.
Returning to the studio for this LP with longtime producer Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, The Gaslight Anthem), the band have laid down a collection of songs that fuse their varied influences brilliantly – from the boogie-woogie shuffle roots of original 50s rock ’n roll, to the strutting swagger of 70s glam & “bovver rock,” to the gritty rabble-rousing of ’77 style anthemic street punk – into a laser-tight, cohesive sound that is unmistakably theirs.
To add iconic imagery to an album that will be an early contender for 2024 album of the year, the band crafted a custom neon sign that is prevalent throughout the album artwork. How many bands today are doing that?!
With the first single now available, the band will be on the road for virtually all of 2024 with new songs (and more on the way) for fans to enjoy who have been clamouring for a new full-length.
