Swamp Song

is the first single from John Easdale’s enigmatic band,


and the first new song from the band in 13 years

from Dramarama’s forthcoming album due in 2019!


…and now Dramarama is back with two new releases, "Swamp Song" and "It's Only Money." Both of which were written in the not entirely recent past and both of which deal with addiction. A subject with which singer/songwriter John Easdale has vast personal past experience. "I consider myself an expert on the subject," admits Easdale. "It’s a horrifying thing to realize that you care more about drugs than you do about your family or your health–both mental and physical. It really is nothing short of a minor miracle that I'm not dead or completely burnt out."

Miracle or not, the new material highlights the overall timelessness of the band’s sound, which is as fresh today as when they released their critically acclaimed first album, Cinema Verite, in 1985.

Thirteen years is a long time between releases, but it’s not as though the band, which includes original members/guitarists Peter Wood and Mark “Mr. E. Boy” Englert and the “new guys”– drummer Tony Snow and bassist Mike Davis, aka The Thunder Brothers, who joined twenty or so years ago–have let any dust gather, any moss to grow. On the contrary, the band has been tearing up stages across the country the entire time. As Easdale puts it, “Few things compare to that sense of uninhibitedness you feel during a great show–waving your fist, stomping your feet, singing out and not giving a f*ck about anything but the music. Dramarama shows are fast, tight, loud, sweaty sing-alongs.”

“…it is a tribute to a potent sound and enthusiastic vision that Dramarama still sounds as fresh and sharp now as when it first emerged during the corporate-rock bloat of the mid-80’s.”
