Craig Owens’ D.R.U.G.S. are teasing a new album
The Craig Owens-fronted group dropped their self-titled debut a decade ago now, with the frontman seemingly reviving the project only last year following their split in 2012. Now, sharing a photo recording vocals in the studio, it looks as though the band are well and truly back.

Craig told Forbes in February 2020 of what releasing King I Am meant for D.R.U.G.S.: “This message is that… I’m back; that I feel good. I feel good about myself. And everyone else should feel good about themselves, too. I hope people turn this on at the gym, or at their home, or in a moment when they’re going to a job interview – some point where they need motivation, where they have to gas themselves up. [I hope] that it inspires them the way that it inspires me. I listen to it when I work out – I love listening to my own music. And that’s not in a self-parading, celebratory kind of way. It’s more about just making the music that I want to hear.”
He added that the song was “very indicative of what is to come” from future material. “I want to write an album that is high-energy, that is motivational,” he said. “Nothing that’s too whiny or self-deprecating. It’s time to step up and communicate something that I believe is missing in that world right now. I hope to team up with a bunch of my producer friends. I love working with other people, but I do have a very focused vision for this.”
Craig also revealed to Blunt last September that he would “trickle out” who will be joining him as part of D.R.U.G.S.’ new line-up. Watch this space…
