Dragged Under to Join Can’t Swim, Fats’e and Moodring on Set the Rooms Ablaze Tour Starting in February




Seattle metal core band Dragged Under will join headliner Can’t Swim on the Set The Rooms Ablaze tour beginning February 8 in Montreal. The run will stage 25 performances wrapping in Philadelphia on March 12. Also appearing are fats’e and Moodring. Dragged Under vocalist Tony Cappocchi shares, “We’re big fans of Can’t Swim. We love their fresh take on punk, and we’re excited to get to spend a few weeks on the road with a mixed bill tour that can help us all find new ears and make new friends.” A complete itinerary follows below.

Most recently, the band and Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group released “Brainwash Broadcast feat. Spencer Chamberlain.” The new recording and accompanying video, featuring Underoath’s Chamberlain can be screened here:



At the time of release, the band shared, “Brainwash Broadcast isn’t a hyper nuanced allegory, it’s a journal entry on the media sensationalism that we endure every day. You can hear the same story from 2 different outlets with competing ideologies, and think two completely different things. It can be hard to decipher satire from real life news some days because of how inundated we are with subjective opinion pieces and click bait headlines. We have a problem with division and fear, and our media and ‘journalists’ are at the center of it.”

This past August, the band released WE’LL DO IT LIVE via Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group. Timed to that title, Dragged Under presented “Hypochondria,” which can be heard and screened here:



Additionally, the band and label released a deluxe version of the band’s debut album titled The World Is In Your Way, with two bonus tracks added titled “Just Like Me” and “Feel It.’”

Dragged Under band members Tony Cappocchi [vocals], Ryan Bruce [guitar], Sean Rosario [guitar], Hans Hessburg [bass], and Kalen Anderson [drums] strike an elusive balance between thrashed-up punk, pit-splitting hardcore, technical metal, and hooky alternative. They are emerging with an audience that continues to grow significantly as witnessed in over 18.5 million combined streams of their repertoire captured over the course of the recent past.
