Craig Owens shows us the new D.R.U.G.S. album... well, sort of.

Craig Owens teases new D.R.U.G.S. album


Followers of Craig Owens were in for a treat today when Owens posted on his Instagram story a photo of what appeared to be the unreleased Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S.) album.

 

Although we are unable to see the full track listing for the upcoming album, fans were able to see that it looks to be a full length second album, not just an EP.

Obviously, Owens posted this to pump up the hype for the D.R.U.G.S. tour starting in October. But there was never any explicit talk about a new album released before tour. The only new D.R.U.G.S. music we received was the single 'King I Am', which was dropped back in February 2020, nine years since the last album was released. However, 'King I Am' has mysteriously vanished off of all streaming platforms.

The D.R.U.G.S. American Tour starts on October 27th in Asbury Park, New Jersey with D.R.U.G.S being a last second addition to the Blue Ridge Rock Festival taking place from September 9th - 12th in Danville, Virginia.

Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows announces American Tour


Craig Owens has officially announced that Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S.) will be going on tour later this year, nearly a decade since their last performance onstage.

Despite the decade long hiatus from music, D.R.U.G.S. has still maintained an extremely loyal fanbase, whether they be fans of Chiodos, Isles & Glaciers, Cinematic Sunrise, badxchannels, or whichever project Craig Owens has been apart of within the last 20 years.

The resurgence of D.R.U.G.S. can possibly leave the door open to the return for many bands that have kept a strong fanbase despite being on hiatus/calling it quits. It's no secret that damn near all artists have been absolutely decimated by Covid-19, the question is if they are willing to reunite with their former bandmates and tolerate another tour together.

It's easy to say the choice here is obvious since many of us have never been on tour and have never experienced the stress of being confined to small living quarters for months on end, but with the lingering threat of going an extended period of time with no income due to the show shutdowns, maybe we might start seeing long dead acts revived.
