Putting politics back into punk/hard rock is Vancouver's Drail (Dee-Rail). On the debut release" The Circus", the sound and fury of life circa 2006 is explored in 11 blistering tracks. Freshly mixed/mastered by Sam Ryan and produced by DRS-1, "The Circus" was three years in the making.There are, a few constant themes that weave their way through this release. First,says Drail: The power of the individual, to think for ourselves and to reach our full potential; not just for ourselves but our communities and our world. No longer is it okay to trust those in charge to do the right thing so we can get on with being perfect consumers.The truth is they are doing bad things in our name and we are trusting blindly at a time where we need to wake the F@#CK UP!!! There is a lot of passion in these songs.It is a vision which hopes to resonate with many people. Blue on Black, Believe it and Funkh'd, are about seeing the need to follow our inner voice, looking inside ourselves and reaching out. Nothing to Say, Fade Away, Belt, and TV ask: what are we really doing?Are we being inactive participants in our own lives, and more importantly - what are our public and private leaders doing in our names? R.I.P.,Words, Bleed and I Should Have Known get down to the personal, issues that seem unique to us, but are really the places where we all come together - life, death, addictions, and relationships.' Drail has years of experience in the Vancouver music scene Previous bands include: Oversoul Seven, Plug, Numb, Chrome Dog, and Another Joe. This time around,Drail takes over the song writing, performing, recording,and producing.Stay tuned, there's more to come.
