Spanish punk rockers THIS DRAMA from Tenerife (Canary Islands) have teamed up with THE BRONX guitarist Joby Ford to produce their next album. It will be recorded at The Big Game Lodge in Van Nuys, CA in early January 2010.
THIS DRAMA released their debut San Diego XIII (www.deepelm.com/481/) on fiercely independent Deep Elm Records in late September 2009 and also appeared on “The Emo Diaries, Chapter 11.” It didn’t take long for people to take notice. The band’s song “She Had A Knife!” is featured in Tony Hawk’s new Activision video game “RIDE” and several of their songs are featured in MTV’s “Nitro Circus” and “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.”
“We really had time to prepare a wellÂ–-crafted record, working on pre-production, spending time thinking about all the compositions as a whole, analyzing the structure of the songs. The result is a defined and coherent album with a lot of variation from the beginning to end. Obsessively influenced by the spirit and the brawn of early SoCal punk rock scene, we will deliver a new album fueled by urgency and intensity for a high-energy album that feels, sounds and smells just like we want THIS DRAMA to be” said lead vocalist Asdrubal Marichal.
THIS DRAMA will also be playing select dates in the Los Angeles area before returning home:
JAN 19 – West Hollywood, CA @ The Viper Room, 11 pm
JAN 22 – Huntington Beach, CA @ Surf City Saloon, 9 pm
JAN 26 – Los Angeles, CA @ Good Hurt, 11 pm
