Drakulas, the art-rock quartet from Austin, TX, are pleased to present the band’s brand new single “Fashion Forward,” no wave’d-out anthem extolling the rise of a cult fashionista. “If Andy Warhol and Kenneth Anger wrote music together, it might be this song,” says the band of the track, which is the first song to be lifted from its forthcoming Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Rocket From The Crypt)-produced full-length album.
The single release comes in advance of the band’s performance this weekend at Riot Fest in Chicago where they will perform on the Rebel Stage at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 14. Stream “Fashion Forward” along with “Sin Will Find You” HERE.

A sonic marriage of proto-punk, garage, 1980’s synth and new wave with lyrical content to match, Drakulas are a concept band donning black turtlenecks & medallions who exist in a fictionalized, late-‘70s metropolis soundtracked by drugs, pornography, video games, nightclubs, art movements and a little bit of a occult esoterica to spare.
Formed by Mike Wiebe and Rob Marchant of the Riverboat Gamblers and Zach Blair of Rise Against as a fully formed art project to explore new, dark avenues and be set apart from other projects, the band quickly went from a diversion to a full-time endeavor by touring, making videos and cultivating acolytes around the globe. After the OWOWOWOW 7-inch release and Raw Wave full-length debut, Drakulas will release their brand new full-length album on Dine Alone Records next year. Stay tuned for more music and visuals over the following weeks and months.
