RAHWAY releases new single -- [Drowning]

RAHWAY releases new single -- [Drowning]

RAHWAY, the hard rock powerhouse renowned for their electrifying performances and thought-provoking lyrics, is set to make waves once again with their highly anticipated new single, "Drowning." The track, which pulls no punches, delves into the depths of social media pretense, shedding light on the unspoken struggle faced by individuals who go to great lengths to project a glamorous façade on their online profiles.

In an era where social media has become a battleground for validation and self-worth, Rahway fearlessly explores the dark underbelly of fabricated lives. "Drowning" captures the essence of a person drowning in their own falsehoods, desperately seeking approval through carefully crafted images and narratives. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of the individual's relentless pursuit of a mirage, ultimately exposing the hollowness that lies beneath the surface.

Rahway's signature hard-hitting sound, characterized by gritty guitar riffs, thunderous drumming, and impassioned vocals, serves as the perfect vehicle to convey the emotional intensity of "Drowning." The band's unwavering commitment to their craft is evident in every note, as they deliver a powerful sonic experience that resonates with listeners on a profound level.

Lead vocalist, Nick Hade, states:

"With 'Drowning,' we wanted to highlight the struggle many face when trying to maintain an illusion of perfection on social media. It's become all too common for people to present an idealized version of themselves, but beneath it all, they're struggling to keep up with their own lies. This song is a wake-up call, a reminder that authenticity and genuine connections are far more valuable than a carefully curated online persona."

"Drowning" is the latest offering from Rahway, following their critically acclaimed album Slumlords of New Jersey and hit singles such as Carry You and Rocketship. The band's unwavering dedication to crafting hard rock anthems that resonate with their audience has garnered them a devoted following and widespread acclaim within the rock community.

As they release "Drowning" to the world, Rahway invites fans and rock enthusiasts alike to join them on a journey of raw emotion and unfiltered truths. Brace yourself for an auditory assault that challenges societal norms and provokes introspection.

Catching Up With COAL CHAMBER

Catching Up With COAL CHAMBER

DIRTBAG JOHN: I had the good fortune to hang out with COAL CHAMBER as they gathered for their final pre-tour tech rehearsal... their bassist, Nadja Peulen has been a fellow DIRTBAG for many years, but it's been a while since we last met up.. Walking in, she gave me the biggest smile, "OMG" and hug. AWESOME! Meeting Meegs and Mikey was a trip as they are always 200%-- even in rehearsals...
some old school shots of NADJA...

I can't thank the band and the entire crew enough for their hospitality. Before we knew it, the whole day flew by as we got an up close and personal show.. Mikey hits the drums so hard that I'm still picking splinters from my shorts... Huge shout out to Smitty from Scorpion Percussion for the invite. Mikey is a Scorpion Percussion artist, and the way Mikey pounds those drums shows the quality and durability of their sticks.
It was a great day for DIRTBAG, and when you see COAL CHAMBER on tour and you're wearing DIRTBAG CLOTHING you'll get the nod from the band for sure!
