DRAIN Cover Classic Descendents Track“ Good Good Things”
Santa Cruz hardcore outfit DRAIN share a music video for their cover of the Descendents track, Good Good Things, ahead of new album LIVING PROOF out May 5th. Tackling the 1985 classic, the re-imagined version comes as a change of pace for the band who trade in their thrash roots for melodic punk, debuting smooth baritone vocals from front man Sammy Ciaramitaro. In tribute to their label mates of legendary status, Sammy explains:
“The Descendents were a huge band for me as both a teenager and as an adult. I know I can speak for all of us when I say that it’s an honour to pay homage and respect to them, as a band that changed the game for us. I just straight up love this track and in a weird way felt like lyrically, it hit home and touched on the same themes that Drain is all about.
It definitely was a bit of a step outside of our lane, doing cleaner singing and what not, but we wanted to try and stick true to the original while giving it a little bit of our personality in the mix. Listen to the Descendents.”
