The DRUMS – ” I Want It All “

Posted: April 3, 2023 in MUSIC

The Drums are back after four years without new music the indie pop band released the single “I Want It All” and announced a summer U.S. tour.

“The song emerged from the longing and the pain that stemmed from a loveless childhood,” says frontman Jonny Pierce about the new single. “It is only in the past few years that I have really begun to understand what happened to me as a boy, which has helped me start to build my own bridge towards real love.”

He adds, “The song is a declaration: That I will take what I was never given. I want the full experience of being human, which includes love and connection. I want it all.” In a signature Drums fashion, Pierce’s voice shines over a driving drumbeat and the sound of oceanside guitars as he repeats the song’s title in the chorus.

Pierce has long spoken about how difficult it was to grow up gay in a small town while being raised by Pentecostal preacher parents. “I didn’t have a happy home as a kid,” he told Yahoo Music in 2017. “It’s funny, you think you grow out of it and you move on, but you’d be surprised just how much of that sticks with you, well into adulthood.”

Along with the self-reflective new single, the alt-pop group is set to head on a U.S. tour, starting at San Diego’s House of Blues, then making their way across the country to stop in cities including Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco.

The new single follows the release of Mommy Don’t Spank Me, the group’s 2021 LP filled with rarities from their breakthrough Portamento era. The band made its debut in 2010 with its self-titled album.
