The Drowns Release New Album 'Blacked Out' Along with US & Euro Tour Dates

The Drowns celebrated the release of their new album, Blacked Out, available now on Pirates Press Records. The band sang along with fans and friends alike to a sold out record release show at the Clock Out Lounge in their home of Seattle. Sharing the stage with them was the Washington legends Noi!se, Clean Lines, bringing their pop rock n roll and Chiswick Commandos opening the night with their pubrock rhythm and blues. 

It was amazing to see Noi!se open up thier set with lead singer, Matt Henson. Who in March of '23 announced the damage he has done throughout the years on his body, let alone his wrist(s) in particular, has made him unable to continue playing bass for the band, but would continue as the lead singer, kicked off the set playing guitar and singing one of the bands latest release 'Liam'. A song Henson wrote while serving in the military speaking his truth to his son Liam in the event that the worst came to pass, leaving the young man to grow up without a dad. To see this live was a great moment and a special way to open up the set for the band that would then rock the walls of the Clock Out Lounge.

The Drowns would be accompanied to the stage by the song, 'In Seattle' by Perry Como playing loud overhead as the lights faded to black. Kicking things right off with their latest single from the new record, 'Katamine and Cola', see the video below. The Drowns had the place rockin' off its hinges, dedicating the first few songs of the setlist to the new album, also pulling out some of the favorites. 'Blacked Out' is a solid 12 song, from front-to-back a marvelous, game changing, punk rock 'n' roll record, that you can't help but jive to. It was an amazing night, you could feel it in the air, a great way to start off the journey of this new album, which will take The Drowns to new heights in 2024 and beyond.

The Drowns will be taking the new album worldwide with their 38 dated US and Euro tour that begins in the U.S. on March 1st, in Morrow Bay, CA at The Siren and will be in London on April 27th with a list of European dates beginning early May.
