This Drama Bio:
Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by The Bronx guitarist Joby Ford who is known for his proficiency at translating ferocity to tape, Tarantula Mata (Deep Elm Records) is a relentless yet slitheringly seductive presentation of pure punk rock. Glorious. Furious. Uncompromising. Laced with hardcore tinges and a hint of late 80´s gutter, it´s the type of music you see described as Punk ´n´ Roll on gig flyers. And this is what This Drama do. One part conventional instrumentation and one part spaztastic attack, a dual theme of familiarity and surprise propel this red hot set of seven songs with a distinctive blend of Spanish and English lyrics. With roaring rock riffs, pummeling drums, jarring tempo shifts, a palette of powerchords and venom-spitting vocals, This Drama lays it all out there and the payoff is huge. This record works… wonders.
“Obsessively influenced by the spirit and the brawn of early SoCal punk rock scene, we’ve delivered a high-energy album fueled by urgency and intensity that feels, sounds and smells just like This Drama should. This is the first time we´ve introduced spanish words to our songs, resulting in a unique blend of lyrics that really helps define our sound.” For the five Tenerife-based members, working together with a stellar production team and recording in Southern California has been one of the most important chapter in the band´s history. “It´s important to mention that by studying the possibilities in our songwriting and discovering the band in a new way, a very hardworking Joby Ford helped bring us to a new level”
