Drown This City have set themselves apart from other bands in their genre with their amazing live show that is high energy and in your face, and vocalist Alex Reade “serves up a sound that’s equal parts beautiful, and brutal and skilfully and seamlessly switches between flesh ripping screams and soaring melodies like it ain’t no thang” says Blunt Magazine.
