Drowned Out is a 4 piece Punk Rock band from Spartanburg, SC. That formed in the spring of 2016. Branded by their audience as "Ugly Pop" Their sound is a mixture reminiscent of the early and mid 90's with driving basslines from bassist Austin Wise, punchy drums from drummer Jason Barrett, gritty guitar tone and blistering solos from Guitarist / Lead Vocalist Dan O'Dylanger, tied together with old school LA Punk guitar style from Guitarist Ryan Lara. The vocal style of lead vocalist Dan O'Dylanger is nothing short of classic, sporting a raspy yet melodic tone. Their sound as a unit is centered around brilliant vocal harmonies from frontman O'Dylanger and Guitarist Ryan Lara, backed up by an audible assault provided by the rhythm section of Drummer Jason Barrett & Bassist Austin Wise. The music is fast, its gritty, it's high-energy and infectiously catchy. With sing-a-long style hooks and headbang inducing rhythm sections, this band is guaranteed to get your attention. Drowned Out Released their debut feature length studio album "Nevermore" July 4th 2020 via Curtain Call Records & Sony Music.

Over the Holiday season, while everyone was resting and putting what was arguably the worst year of our lives to bed. Drowned Out was hard at work burning the midnight oil securing new endorsement deals, writing and recording new music and booking their 2021 calendar out. Their most proud of the partnership they've struck with powerhouse PigHog Cables! A household name amongst musicians of all types, Drowned Out has been using their equipment and cables since day one due to its reliability. So it only made sense that when the opportunity to be an official PigHog Artist presented itself, the guys jumped at it.
In addition to securing a slot on the Official PigHog Artist roster, they also managed to secure a discount code for all you fans! In an attempt to invite the fans to try PigHog cables for themselves, the company agreed to offer 20% off to Drowned Out fans by using promo code "DROWNED20" at checkout to instantly save 20% off their purchase from www.pighogcables.com
While you're there, be sure to head over and scope out Drowned Out's official Artist page courtest of the fine folks at Pig Hog Cables.
"It's an honor to be backed up by a company that I truly admire and trust. I've been using their cables for as long as I've known about them, and it just feels good to know that on top of producing a top grade product, they also support the artists who support them." - Dan O'Dylanger stated.
Happy New year! Happy Playing! Fat Cable. Fat Sound. PigHog Cables.
Dan and Ryan are now officially endorsed by Black Diamond Strings! Both have exclusively used Black Diamond strings prior to the deal, so it only made sense to make it official! "I was a slinky guy, until I played a guitar strung up with Black Diamonds, after that i was sold for life" Said O'Dylanger. "The life of these strings outlasts any other coated bass string I've ever used" remarked Lara.
Black Diamond Strings originated in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where the National Musical String Co., the first maker of harmonicas in America, became one of the world's largest manufacturers of steel musical strings. These strings turn up everywhere in music history and now have found their way to Punk Rock music with Drowned Out.
Black Diamond strings have a hexagon shaped core that allows for superior grip between frets. Black Coating provides an even longer life to Black Diamond’s superior duration. The coating will protect your strings from hand oils that can cause premature wear. All six strings are coated to give full protection and a balanced feel.
"Once you play a set of Black Diamonds, you'll never play anything else" - Dan O'Dylanger
