Drain Premiere “Living Proof” Video


Santa Cruz, CA hardcore group Drain have released a live performance-themed music video for the title track to their latest album, “Living Proof“. The footage was shot on Super 8 by Ryan and Alice Baxley amid the band’s touring on the record.

Speaking of the song itself, vocalist Sammy Ciaramitaro commented:

“‘Living Proof‘ serves as a culmination of everything that the record stands for. As our closing statement to the album, I wanted something that would feel larger than life when it’s sung by a whole crowd. I wanted to write something uplifting but honest and real, and I think that this was the vibe for the whole record, but especially for this track.

I was envisioning the live show setting and the whole crowd screaming “HERE AND NOW…THIS IS LIVING PROOF” and getting chills thinking about how cool that would be. A room full of people yelling that this specific moment in time is proof that we are right where we are supposed to be in this world and in this life. So sick.

My favorite part of the video is actually the very ending. We thought it would be cool to fade the record out by slowing down the tape while we just ring some notes out, KISS style haha. All the love and respect from us, I hope ya’ll enjoy the video. YOU are living proof!”
