Punk rockers DRONES start a new chapter as they welcome vocalist Lois McDougall and guitarist Tim Kramer to their line-up.
Coinciding with the re-launch the band have announced European tour dates and an appearance at Camden Rocks Festival.
Founding member and drummer Mitchell Thomas comments:
“We are stoked to announce the addition of Lois McDougall and Tim Kramer to the Drones family. We have been busy in the studio writing and recording and Lois and Tim have really brought a new lease of life and a new dynamic to the band. We can’t wait to get on the road and introduce the world to the latest chapter in our story!”
Previously a four-piece, Drones saw the departure of their vocalist Daly George before they welcomed ex-Fallow Fields singer McDougall and Bayeux bassist Kramer.
“I’m so excited to be teaming up with Drones,” adds McDougall. “The music we’ve written already is such a release for me. The guys are all really talented, and I’m privileged to be a part of Drones’ future. We have some awesome shows coming up! I can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on with everyone, as well as busting out the previous releases with my own twist too.”
With an impressive live résumé – having already appeared at Download Festival and shared stages with Funeral For A Friend, Neck Deep, Gallows, H20 and Marmozets as their old line-up – Drones have set their foundations and will continue to build up a solid reputation as they enter this new chapter.
Keep your eyes peeled for new music very soon via Lockjaw Records, as well as the band’s first video featuring the line-up.
