Drain Premiere “FTS (KYS)” Music Video

Drain have premiered a new video for their new song “FTS (KYS).” This track is from the band’s new album “Living Proof,” which will be released on May 5.

Sammy Ciaramitaro commented:

“Read the lyrics to this song before you make an assumption on what it’s about. This song and this band are all about bettering yourself and the world around you. Sometimes it takes drastic measures to be the person you want to be and I hope this song can give someone the push they might be needing to make that jump.

I didn’t become straight edge until I was 22, which is a lot later than most of my peers, and I had always wanted to write a song about my journey to sobriety from my standpoint as someone who did in fact indulge in a lifestyle of excess. I know that if I was in that situation, there has to be others that are just like me and I really wanted to write something for those kids.

We had a lot of fun writing this song because we got to experiment with different song structures, wild drum and riffing patterns, and we got to go full “crazy train” with the percussion instruments!”

Drain Premiere “Evil Finds Light” Music Video

Drain have premiered a new video for their new song “Evil Finds Light.” This track is from the band’s new album “Living Proof,” which will be released on May 5.

Sammy Ciaramitaro said the following about the song:

“While Drain channels a rule-free chaos/party vibe through our live show, I am actually somewhat of a stress case haha. I get pretty wound up sometimes and so lyrically, I just tried to tap into those feelings and paint a picture of the way I feel and the way that stress can sometimes make me see my world a little bit different than it actually is. While the song is completed, managing the stress is still a work in progress.”

He also added the following about the album:

“I hope with this record that when someone hears it, it gives them hope. This is the soundtrack of perseverance and people overcoming the naysayers in their world and inside themselves. I can’t wait to play these songs and hear a room full of people singing back to us. We’re what the title says, the Living Proof.”
