The next single from DRAIN’s upcoming debut album Living Proof
Today the hardcore trio have dropped FTS (KYS), which as well as
having a killer accompanying video, contains an important message.
“Read the lyrics to this song before you make an assumption on
what it’s about,” says vocalist Sammy Ciaramitaro. “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,” he continues. “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!”
