ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So rock and roll is dead… anyone following the Billboard charts would have a hard time arguing with that. Besides, Gene Simmons said it, so it must be true. But just because something is dead doesn’t mean it should stay buried.

Beat the Drag, from the one-time glam capital of the world, Hollywood, are more than happy to dig up rock’s leather-coated bones.

Eschewing the need to follow trends just to make it big, the members of Beat the Drag would rather play what they want. That just happens to be rock and roll the way it once was. Power chords, soaring leads, sing-a-long choruses and whine-free lyrics—basically the antithesis of popular music.

Following the release of last year's debut EP, Beat the Drag are ready to unleash their first full-length album, What's Your Damage?. Recorded in their hometown of Hollywood, the songs reflect the high-energy-yet-laid-back California attitude in all its sunburned glory. It will be available wherever digital music is sold, and even on limited cd for the old-school crowd.

It’s not about reinventing the wheel… there’s certainly no point in fixing what’s not broken. Beat the Drag’s individuality comes from pulling all facets of rock and rolling them together. From the rifftastic heaviness of Fu Manchu, to the Seventies worship of the Hellacopters; from the NWOBHM stylings of Def Leppard’s High n’ Dry to the Brit punk snottiness of 3 Colours Red, it’s all fair game.

With songs about breakups, laziness, California and groupies, there’s not a trace of teenage angst or vicious politicizing. This is music for cruising down the highway with a girl (or guy) on your arm, top down; palm trees and endless oceans all around.

So while the days of rock and rollers filling stadiums have been relegated to bands collecting Social Security, it’s nice to know that someone is willing to carry on the legacy.

It may not lead to a rock and roll resurrection, but it’s damn sure worth a listen.
