DRAIN’s cover of the Descendents classic “Good Good Things” is a welcome departure from their ferocious thrashy punk sound.
The melodic earworm showcases the band’s versatility and ability to channel their energy into a different style while still maintaining their signature intensity. The song’s lyrics fit seamlessly with DRAIN’s ethos and serve as a testament to their perseverance and determination.
The new album by DRAIN, “Living Proof,” is a testament to their hard work and ethos. The album contains a few surprises, such as rapper Shakewell appearing on the track “Intermission” and a cover of the Descendents’ “Good, Good Things.”
Despite the latter being almost four decades old, Sam Ciaramitaro claims that the song’s lyrics resonate with DRAIN’s message. Ciaramitaro hopes that the album will bring hope to those who listen to it, and he looks forward to hearing a room full of people singing along to their songs. As he puts it, “We’re what the title says, the Living Proof.”
Drain is all set to promote “Living Proof” which is scheduled to release on May 5, 2023, under Epitaph Records. The band has planned a European tour this summer and will perform in 14 countries including major festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Polandrock Festival, and Summer Breeze Open Air.
Drain also made an announcement regarding their upcoming tour, which includes sponsorship by Monster Energy Drink. The band disclosed the list of bands that will accompany them on this tour, and it appears to be quite exceptional.
With Drug Church and Magnitude, two powerful hardcore bands, joining them for most of the tour, Drain’s tour is shaping up to be the most significant hardcore event of the year during the spring and summer.
