---Crawling out from the basement
of a record store in Wayne, NJ, Dramarama spent 12 years touring the U.S. and
Europe, recorded five studio albums, a live EP, countless B-sides, and even one
"secret" album. Perhaps best known for their hit "Anything Anything (I'll Give
You...)," the band has been a mainstay at alternative stations across the
---They eventually called a halt to
the proceedings; but were coaxed back onto the stage by VH1's "Bands Reunited."
That "one night only" transmutated into a series of tour dates around the
country and the recording of a new album, "everybody dies," which continues the
tradition of excellence fans have come to expect from Dramarama.
---ON THE ALBUM - "everybody dies" What do you do
when your best friend...more like a brother than any brother... is dying? Of
course you care for him, you cry for him... And if you're John Easdale, you
write him a song.
---That song, "Everybody
Dies" along with other new Dramarama tracks, originally started out as part of
the next Easdale solo project, but some plans are meant to be changed. After
having 15,000 screaming, sweat-drenched fans sing along during their
performance at a concert for L.A. radio giant KROQ (where Dramarama's signature
tune, "Anything Anything" is the #1 most requested song EVER,) original
Dramarama members Easdale, Peter Wood and Mark (Mr. E Boy) Englert didn't need
any more convincing--Dramarama, the name, and the band, would go on.
---Now, Dramarama has gone back into the studio
and emerged with a new album, "everybody dies," continuing their quest to
better the world with their music. Okay, well, at least to have fun and create
more intense, intelligent, incredible rock & roll. To quote "Everybody
Dies": "That's just how great it is."
