The Drowns Release Their New Video For Look What We’ve Become

THE DROWNS released their new video for “Look What We’ve Become,” a track from their new EP “Lunatics” out now and available on Pirates Press Records’ webstore.

Amidst the turmoil embroiling the United States, the song and video are all the more timely. “The song is about what a mess our country has become as far as how we all treat each other. I wrote that song in the middle of a month-long pneumonia laying on my couch while lots of my friends were at the protests happening in downtown Seattle. The song is being blown away by the current state of America, and holding for a better tomorrow,” says frontman Aaron Rev

The Drowns have also previously released videos for two other singles – “Lunatics” and “Live Like Yer Dyin’.”

The video for “Lunatics” spotlights the pervasive homeless issue that both the band’s hometown of Seattle and the country has.

“I wanted to attempt to plea to anyone watching to think twice before judging someone who lives on the streets, and maybe lend a hand when you’d normally just walk by,” said Rev.

With “Live Like Yer Dyin’,” the song is a tribute to the band’s love for 50’s and 60’s rock ‘n roll.

“Lunatics” is the follow-up to the band’s recently released 7” “Know Who You Are” and their previous full-length “Under Tension.” For “Lunatics,” The Drowns once again got back into the studio with producer Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, The Bouncing Souls) to re-capture the magic they created for “Under Tension.”

The EP showcases incredible growth in The Drowns’ songwriting – revealing an array of influences the band has not showcased in their prior releases.

For example, “Tokyo Red Alert” is based on an audio diary of when the band was caught in Typhoon Hagibis while staying in Tokyo. “She’s The Knife” is a song Rev wrote for his wife after she got off a 12-hour nursing shift and got cat-called on her way home.

The band will be supporting the release of “Lunatics” with tours across the U.S. and Europe throughout the rest of the year!
