Seattle, the sprawling metropolis perched on the edge of the West Coast of the United States, is sandwiched between an arm of the Pacific Ocean to the west and Lake Washington to the east. It’s the fastest-growing city in the U.S., thanks to its giant tech industry, which pulses through its veins. “We’re excited about being from Seattle. Even with all of its faults, it’s a great place to be,” says Dragged Under vocalist, Tony Cappocchi. “I think that a lot of the lack of culture stems from the large corporations that employ the majority of the city. Most people that grow up here are on the Amazon, Microsoft, and Boeing, express. They desire to work for these big companies because it’s ‘what you do’. As a band we want to question that notion by doing what we want, and writing what’s in our hearts”
Dragged Under have the conviction to question both themselves as well as others – which can be a heavy tool to wield. The band’s debut album, ‘The World Is In Your Way’, covers a wide range of topics including self-reflection, introspection, class barriers, mental health issues, government overreach and self-accountability. “Our main mission is to shed light on some of the issues that people find uncomfortable,” Cappocchi claims. “Including responsibility and accountability. We don’t subscribe to the theory that an invisible hand holds us down and keeps us low. We strive to push through that.”
Dragged Under's blend of hardcore is interlaced with sublime and infectious punk-pop undertones, which stems from the music they grew up on. There is an undeniable melodic heartbeat to every song, which makes them sit front and centre of your brain upon listening. They combine massive choruses and crushing riffs recalling moments of Beartooth, Stray From The Path, While She Sleeps, Four Year Strong and A Day To Remember. After self releasing the debut album digitally, it smashed its way into the Top 10 iTunes Alternative Chart and stormed into the Billboard Charts, which then saw them embark on a 20 date U.S. tour with The Used. That groundswell of support has seen them amass an incredible 4.5 million streams in 6 months. All of this has been done following their own rules, their vision and their D.I.Y. attitude. The band has the conviction to question both themselves as well as others – which can be a heavy tool to wield. Dragged Under's debut album, 'The World Is In Your Way', covers a wide range of topics including self-reflection, introspection, class barriers, mental health issues, government overreach and self-accountability.
