The Wasted Youth is glorious. It’s furious. It’s uncompromising. It’s punk rock laced with hardcore tinges and a hint of late 80’s gutter. It’s the type of music you see described as “punk ‘n’ roll” on gig flyers. And it’s what THIS DRAMA does best. One part conventional instrumentation and one part spaztastic attack, a battling theme of familiarity and surprise propel this red hot set of four new songs with roaring rock riffs, pummeling drums, jarring tempo shifts, a palette of powerchords and venom-spitting vocals. Although the band hails from the Canary Islands, make no mistake…these aren’t sunshine-soaked tourist tunes. Produced by ex-The Ghost Of A Thousand guitarist Jag Jago, who is known for his work with The Maccabees, Your Demise, Mastodon as well as his expertise at capturing ferocity in the studio, The Wasted Youth is a relentless, explosive, mouth-watering assault of punk meets rock n’ roll. This Drama lays it all out there and yet again, the payoff is huge.
