Santa Cruz-bred hardcore quartet Drain have signed to Epitaph Records and today the band have shared their new single “Watch You Burn,” produced and engineered by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Rotting Out).
“‘Watch You Burn’ is a pissed off and in your face song that I wrote after hitting a breaking point this year,” explains vocalist Sammy Ciaramitaro. “Lyrically, it is exactly what I felt like I needed to say to convey the way that I had been feeling, while also being the exact words that I needed to hear at that point in my life. I was in a really dark place and I used my mindset and troubled environment as fuel to create and make a positive out of a negative. Life handed me lemons and I made a badass song out of it.”

Since their formation in 2014, Drain have released two EPs and one full-length record; Over Thinking (2016), Time Enough at Last (2017), and their debut record California Cursed (2020). Th band takes heavy influence from thrash, and ’80s to ’90s hardcore mixed with a modern influence.
