NorCal hardcore trio Drain announces the 25-date Monster Energy Outbreak Tour Presents: Drain.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 24 at 10 am local time at

Frontman Sammy Ciaramitaro comments:

“We are mad pumped to be headlining the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. It’s going to be insane. If you’ve never experienced a DRAIN show, we can’t wait to bring it to you!”

Their sophomore record Living Proof is due for release on May 5th via Epitaph Records, produced by longtime friend and multi-instrumentalist Taylor Young (God’s Hate, Suicide Silence) and mixed by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Koyo). The record injects a serious dose of relatability—not to mention catchiness—into hardcore’s penchant for toughness and brutality. More info here.
