Santa Cruz hardcore trio Drain are back in action this year with a new album called Living Proof, due out May 5th via Epitaph Records. Following previous singles "Evil Finds Light" and "Watch You Burn," the band are continuing to tease their follow-up to 2020's California Cursed with a smoking hot new track called "FTS (KYS)."
This fresh hardcore ripper is paired up with a wild new video that features every member of the band getting murdered by a cold-blooded assassin. Watch and listen above via YouTube.
"Read the lyrics to this song before you make an assumption on what it's about," frontman Sammy Ciaramitaro said in a statement. "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!"
