News: Drain Share Live Performance Video for ‘Living Proof’

Santa Cruz hardcore energizers Drain released a new live performance video for “Living Proof,” the self-titled track taken from their latest LP that released this past May via Epitaph Records.

As seen in the video, “Living Proof” churns the room through its demonstration of stomping grooves, chugging riffage, and empowering sing-alongs. Shot on super 8 film by Alice and Ryan Baxley during one of Drain’s shows, the video has a classic aesthetic and encapsulates the high energy that radiates from both the band and crowd while they perform.

Drain frontman Sammy Ciaramitaro states: “‘Living Proof’ serves as a culmination of everything that the record stands for. As our closing statement to the album, I wanted something that would feel larger than life when it’s sung by a whole crowd. I wanted to write something uplifting, but honest and real, and I think that this was the vibe for the whole record, but especially for this track. I was envisioning the live show setting and the whole crowd screaming “HERE AND NOW…THIS IS LIVING PROOF” and getting chills thinking about how cool that would be. A room full of people yelling that this specific moment in time is proof that we are right where we are supposed to be in this world and in this life.”

Drain will be touring throughout Australia for the month of December, then will be supporting Neck Deep in North America during January/February. Full dates below.
