Drowners' second album available now

I was very impressed by the guys' debut album and subsequent performance at Coachella '14. Can't wait until they start a full U.S. tour. Get an update below...

Frenchkiss recording group Drowners release their new album "On Desire" today (Friday). It was recorded and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer.

The band first came together in summer 2011 when singer/guitarist Matthew Hitt left his native Wales and resettled in New York City. Soon after, he hooked up with Jack Ridley III (guitar, vocals) Erik Lee Snyder (bass) and later, Daniel Jacobs (drums).

Drowners officially emerged in 2013 with the "Between Us Girls" EP that that led to signing with NYC's influential Frenchkiss Records. Full length debut "Drowners" arrived in January 2014.

Nearly two years of non-stop international touring included 2014's Coachella and support dates alongside Arctic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, The Vaccines, Temples, and Foals.

1. Troublemaker
