D.R.U.G.S. Bring Punk Energy to ‘Sex Life’ Video
Comprised of scene veterans Craig Owens (ex-Chiodos), Matt Good (ex-From First to Last), Aaron Stern (ex-Matchbook Romance), Nick Martin (Underminded), and Adam Russell (Story of the Year) — Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S.) have had quite a busy 2011 so far. Not only did the post-hardcore quintet issue its self-titled debut album in late February, they’ve also managed to go out and co-headline the Alternative Press Tour with Black Veil Brides.
If you’ve heard their album, you know that D.R.U.G.S. write the kind of emotionally explosive music that lends itself perfectly to the video medium. In their new video for ‘Sex Life,’ the crew plays to a crowd in a cramped basement, DIY punk style.
In the song’s climactic chorus, Owens repeatedly asks, “If you had a sex life, would you even worry about mine?”

Noisecreep recently asked Owens if singing a song as aggressive as ‘Sex Life’ is physically taxing. “It’s actually much more therapeutic than taxing. It’s pretty amazing,” the vocalist said.
For their debut album, D.R.U.G.S. worked with John Feldmann (The Used, Mest), a producer known to push his clients to get the best work out of them. ‘John added a lot to the entire experience,” said Owens. “He really helped me channel the things that I was trying to say in the songs through his own life experiences.”
