Drakulas - Level Up

Drakulas recently unveiled the title track to their upcoming Dine Alone Records debut, Level Up. "Level Up," the song, was teh first song written for the album and it follows a character -- The Kid -- whose video gaming skills lead to fame and a drug habit so he can focus on the task at hand. The concept expands from here.

Listen via a YouTube embed here:

Drakulas was formed by Mike Wiebe and Rob Marchant of the Riverboat Gamblers and Zach Blair of Rise Against. Stay tuned to SPB for an upcoming interview with Wiebe about the project.

SPB premiere: "Mood Swings & Roundabouts" by Don't Worry

There’s a lot of exciting news about upcoming projects from Essex/London’s Don’t Worry. The band has a new acoustic EP out ...

We’ve never had any real budget to make any of our music videos, and so we’ve always been conscious that if we were to try to make something serious, we’d probably just end up making fools of ourselves. So we make videos on little to no budget that are hopefully funny or at least just ridiculous and therefore entertaining instead. This is one of the most serious tracks from our album but perhaps the silliest video we’ve made so far. We hope you like it! The rubber fish mask absolutely stunk and I couldn’t get rid of the smell for days afterwards. 

Catch the band next month on the “One Year On and Still Nobody Cares” UK tour.
Who Cares Anyway? is available on red vinyl and CD via Specialist Subject Records.
August tour dates:
20th - Norwich, Rabbit
21st - Liverpool, Craft Taproom
22nd - Glasgow, Bloc
23rd - Cheltenham, Frog & Fiddle
24th - Exeter, Cavern
