‘Back to La Brea’ is the latest effort from Spanish rock outfit This Drama. The band have dropped the distortion pedals and locked themselves up in a desert cabin to produce their most visceral work to date.
To celebrate the release of the single, This Drama have also released a music video for the track. ‘Back to La Brea’ is available on digital platforms now, via Golden Robot Records.
|Mixed by the extremely talented Alex Newport, ‘Back to La Brea’ is dark but surprisingly catchy and accessible to those that might not be familiar with their previous work. Lyrically, the band keeps to their true honest feelings, fighting demons and offering an introspective experience for the listener, a connection that’s hard for other artists to create, but ‘Back to La Brea’ has done it so effortlessly|

This Drama has had quite an unexpected yet stellar trajectory since their 2005 inception in southern Europe.
In 2008, having clenched the top spot at the prestigious Rock Awards in Madrid (Spain), the band went on to record their explosive debut album San Diego 13, which lead to a series of tours in the US topped up by a showcase slot at the infamous SXSW festival.
In 2010 the five-piece returned to their spiritual home of Los Angeles to produce their sophomore album Tarantula Mata under the supervision of Joby Ford(The Bronx) who helped the band defining their sound, inspiring a new direction.
With a new album in tow, 2011 saw This Drama take on their most audacious North American tour yet, playing some of the biggest stages during the European festival season such as Azkena Rock Festival and Resurrection Fest, sharing the bill with artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Queens Of The Stone Age and Rob Zombie.
It’s back to the studio yet again in 2013, this time with producer/guitarist Jag Jago of The Ghost Of A Thousandin Brighton (UK) for the recording of The Wasted Youth EP, which consolidates the sound of the band whilst exploring new creative avenues.
For the band’s 10-year anniversary in 2015 the live album ViveSiempre is released followed by an extensive national tour supporting Canadian boss men Cancer Bats, which would lead to wholesome creative endeavours further down the line.
In 2016 the band is invited to showcase their live album at the Canadian Music Week Festival (Toronto). The band return to their native Spain along with Cancer Bats’ guitarist/producer Scott Middleton to record their Summer Failures album, released in late 2017 by Venn Records (UK).
The band tours this album alongside Canadian favouritesPUP.
Come 2022, a song reaches the offices of Golden Robot Global Entertainment in Los Angeles. The story continues.
