Supreme noisemakers Drenge are back and confirm details for their new, second album, Undertow.
Due out on April 6th, the follow-up to the band’s self-titled 2013 debut is preceded by the explosive single, ‘We Can Do What We Want’. It takes the assertive force, aggression and exhilarating punk-rock fury of their debut before taking it up a notch, for a storming hi-octane blast of rock ‘n roll brilliance. In many ways, it’s the same old Drenge, which isn’t a bad thing at all. There is less of a menacing threat at play and it’s got more swagger and confidence, with more attention being played to stomping groove over visceral snarling. Whatever the case it makes the prospect of their upcoming new album even more tantalizingly exciting. Sit back. Turn the dial up to full blast. Enjoy. Repeat.
Undertow is due out on April 6th through Infectious Music with brothers Rory Loveless and Eoin Loveless are joined by Rob Graham on bass for three songs, adding a new member for the first time. For now though, there’s the not so small matter of ‘We Can Do What We Want’.
