Robert Jon and The Wreck Drop Second Single from Upcoming Album

Robert Jon and The Wreck, the Southern California powerhouse, has just released “Dragging Me Down,” the second single from their eagerly anticipated album, Red Moon Rising. This track is a testament to the band’s hard-rocking ethos and a bold continuation of their musical journey, showcasing their ability to blend powerful storytelling with unmistakable rock n’ roll grit. Set for release on June 28th via Joe Bonamassa’s Journeyman Records, Red Moon Rising represents a new chapter for the band, infused with the spirit of renewal and the relentless drive of their rock roots.

“Dragging Me Down” is a “bonafide, heavy hitting riff-rock anthem,” according to guitarist Henry James. The song went through several iterations before reaching its final, compelling form under the guidance of legendary producer Kevin Shirley. Recorded at the prestigious Village in Santa Monica, California, “Dragging Me Down” offers a dramatic narrative of an ill-fated one-night stand, backed by punchy, overdriven guitars, pounding drums, and an anthemic vocal performance that demands audience participation. “Featuring punchy, overdriven guitars, pounding drums, and an anthemic rock vocal performance, this is sure to get you singing along & get your feet stomping!” says James.

The release of ‘Dragging Me Down’ comes on the heels of the launch of the band’s 2024 tour, as Robert Jon & The Wreck hit the road to bring the vibrant energy of their new material directly to their fans. With a schedule that includes intimate venues in Phoenix, AZ and Santa Fe, NM, as well as international stops in cities like Milan and Barcelona, the tour promises a diverse array of performances.
