Blood Drugs is an American punk band from Seattle, Washington. Inspired by discordant chords and Rainier beer, Blood Drugs has compiled a musical sound in the likes of bands such as Rites of Spring and the Monorchid with lyrical and vocal influence from bands such as Hot Snakes, The Murder City Devils, and Jawbreaker.
Forming member and guitarist/songwriter Shawn Kock (Absolute Monarchs, Das Llamas) has a unique and powerfully engaging rhythm and an unmistakable tone that captures the impetuousness of a hummingbird soaked in gasoline. Singer and rhythm guitar player Kyle Bradford (Ghost of Kyle Bradford) contributes with an alternate tuning and an entourage of bad omens. Drummer, Thomas Burke (Das Llamas, the Girls) spanning his arrangements over a spastic discord of sound, perfectly captures the haunting spirits and strangles them into time and measure with a stunning and precise honesty and hard-hitting power. Gwen Stubbs, bassist (Prison, Scared of Chaka), the newest to be born in Blood Drugs, solidified the four-piece with beauty and sheer talent. Adding to the Lowest, the lows.
