Seattle-based band Dragged Under make “Hard Rock laced Punk Rock” and have recently released new single and video “Crooked Halos” in front of the band’s new studio album, Upright Animals, which will be released globally on June 10th, 2022 by Mascot Records. The release will be available on CD, an orange transparent LP, and digitally.

Singer Tony Cappocchi shares:

’Crooked Halos’ is a story that’s probably familiar to all of us. Relationships are complex and challenging. What happens behind closed doors is often a lot less perfect than what we allow others to perceive. If you’re from a divorced family like I am you probably know that better than most, which is why a lot of the ‘mommy and daddy don’t love each other anymore’ talks can seem to come out of nowhere.  Sometimes two people shouldn’t be together, and everyone knows it, but for some reason they won’t let go. That’s what ‘Crooked Halos’ is about. 

Dragged Under create a hybrid of Punk, Rock, Metal, and Hardcore featuring Tony Cappocchi [vocals], Ryan Bruce [guitar], Sean Rosario [guitar], Hans Hessburg [bass], and Kalen Anderson [drums]. During 2021, they recorded what would become Upright Animals with frequent collaborator Hiram Hernandez [Jared Dines, Craig Owens] in Los Angeles and Matt Good [Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandria] in Phoenix.

Cappocchi says about the full album:

When you listen to this, I hope you experience moments of tension, anxiety, sadness, and happiness. At the same time, it’s nostalgic for us. We want it to remind you of being young and discovering the bands that changed your life. If you think, ‘This reminds me of what I grew up on,’ I’d be very satisfied. We spent a lot of time and energy on this. I’m excited about the future.
