Dragged Under frontman Tony Cappocchi bares his soul on new tune Just Like Me and admits fitting in has never been easy.
The Seattle punk rockers have announced a deluxe reissue of debut album The World In Your Way.
And Just Like Me is one of two new tracks included on the revamped album – set for release on November 13.
“In my life, I’m in a never-ending struggle to stand out or fit in,” said Cappocchi. “Sometimes, I’m just tired of being myself.
“You have no control of the consciousness inside of your body.
“It’s easy to slip up and give the body what it wants with addictions, while the mind is like, ‘Why the fuck are you doing this?’.
“The new song is about my personality and how I act towards people I care about.”
Just Like Me is backed by a brilliant new video from one of the fastest rising bands on the planet.
Cappocchi, Ryan Bruce [guitar], Sean Rosario [guitar], Hans Hessburg [bass] and Kalen Anderson [drums] go to town on the hilarious clip.
And the band’s heady mix of punk, hardcore and technical metal looks set to reach a far wider audience towards the back end of 2020.
The band’s debut will be released digitally as well as on CD and limited edition clear base/green splatter LP for the first time.
The LP will include a paint by numbers insert of the cover art.
Cappocchi takes aim at allcomers on the spiky The World In Your Way and added: “Life, social media, the news, and cancel culture can all drag you under.
“We’re embracing the fact the world is trying to pull us down.
“People may try to stop you from succeeding. They’re in your way.
“Once you get them out of your way, you can truly take over.
“The only person you can rely on is yourself. There’s no minority smaller than the individual.”
