With the release of the Humanoid EP, Drug Mirror takes some of the best parts of several rock genres and makes it all their own. Laced with deep toned and heavy guitars, progressive undertones, and plenty of explosive hooks, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative-rock anthems.
The first single "King Fiend" is a hard-hitting track that blasts a massive grunge and metal feel with an aggressive style and an infectious melodic chorus.
"The single is about drugs. The rollercoaster of addiction. The pursuit, the highs, the lows. The desire to make a change then finding yourself back in the pursuit. Almost like a Jekyll/Hyde situation from verse to choruses lyrically and musically." explains the band of their single.
Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a full understanding of where Drug Mirror is really coming from, the EP should be heard in its entirety.
"Involvement of the individual members in the writing process. Our drummer wrote 'King Fiend' for example. Everyone in the band writes. Gator Peak had a clean sound due to the recording and mixing process. This EP has more of the sounds we were looking for on past recordings. We did this EP with Joey DeMaio at ShoreFire Recording with access to all the gear we’ve heard used by our influences. We were able to capture more of our energy in doing so." says the band of the way the EP came together.
Drug Mirror formed when two bands merged together. Rob and Mike played in Ether Sunday and Erik and Nash in The Cold Seas. Nash performs drums with Armor For Sleep and is currently touring with Dashboard Confessional.
The band began writing songs together and have since released the "Graves" single along with the Gator Peak EP in 2021.
Now that the Humanoid EP is out, the band is already focused on their upcoming single releases this fall followed by another full EP with songs recorded at ShoreFire but this time mixed by Grammy nominated producer/engineer, Machine.
