Drowning’s new effort Egotrip streaming in full

Chicago beatdown outfit Drowning’s debut studio effort Egotrip is online now and can be heard in its entirety below. Vocalist Bryan Grantz says:

“Growing up in Chicago you learn a lot from the streets. Once you commit to a lifestyle there is no going back or backing down. You have to stand up for what you believe in through and through.”

Bassist Ryan Kramarz comments:

“Recording Egotrip was both an amazing and challenging experience. We knew we wanted to push ourselves as much as possible and let the sound come together organically. As a band, we aimed to take a big step away from the constraints of genres and expectations. We wanted to do something that we could indisputably call our own. We were also very fortunate to have so many talented friends to collaborate with. Every artist featured on this record are people we respect and love working with. Everyone brought something unique to the table and helped shape the overall sound of the album.”

Egotrip drops this Friday, February 26th via Fast Break! Records. Pre-orders are still available and can be picked up here.
