You know who had a pretty deeecent year? The legends in Drown This City! Not only did they sign to UNFD back in June, but they also released their career-defining EP Alpha // Survivor which showcased what this band really have behind them (our review here). The best part is, they’re just getting started and we can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for them all.
