Drakulas (Riverboat Gamblers, Rise Against) releasing debut LP (song stream)
Denton, TX punk staple Mike Wiebe, who fronts Riverboat Gamblers (and is also in High Tension Wires with The Marked Men’s Mark Ryan and Ghost Knife with J Church’s Chris Pfeffer and Ben White), has yet another band, Drakulas. The band also includes Zach Blair, who’s currently in Rise Against and more recently formed Vanishing Life with Walter Schreifels (and was briefly in GWAR among other projects).
Following Drakulas’ debut 7″ on Red Scare, they’ll release their first full-length, Raw Wave, on November 18 via Dirtnap. It was recorded by Mark Ryan and his Marked Men/Radioactivity bandmate Jeff Burke, and it’s very much in the same world of power poppy garage punk that those bands are. We’re premiering “Neon Town” off the record, which is a ripper that you can hear right here:
