Drones’ latest anthem for personal growth – ‘Learn’ – is out today, providing another peek at the band’s forthcoming album ‘Our Hell Is Right Here’, which is set for release 12 February via Lockjaw Records & Thousand Islands Records.
“Learn is about the desperate struggle to make a failing relationship work,” says vocalist Lois McDougall. “You can feel that it’s not right but you still care about the other person. We seem to make the same mistakes over and over by assuming we know what the other person is thinking, so communication stops. We keep trying to force a relationship to work with someone that we’re just not meant to be with. If it’s more of a struggle than not… it’s not worth it. You should never diminish any part of yourself for someone else because, ultimately, you’ll end up resenting them.”
Drones are also launching a signature coffee blend, fittingly monikered ‘Fresh Hell’ – they intend it to be the ultimate cure for the ‘hangover’ of the bleak year that was 2020. Says drummer Mitchell Thomas of the venture: “We’re trying to help our fans start their year right and perk them up with a new premium blend of coffee featuring flavours of vegan milk chocolate, pecan and hazelnut.
