July 30, 2011. Ok, what does one call this rock alternative band that took Vans Warped Tour by storm. Is it  D-R-U-G-S or Drugs or Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows? Adam Russell bass player for the newly formed dream team band D.R.U.G.S. talks about the name of the band, the band dynamics and the new single and video "Sex Life." Adam also opens up candidly about his reaction to the death of Amy Winehouse.

When asked about playing Warped Tour and what it is like being part of a band where members were cherry picked from the hottest alternative rock bands on the music front, Adam responds "It's a new fresh kind of vibe...the best part about this band is we all have absolute faith and trust in each others abilities as musicians."

Check out the interview on video with audio and photo montage from the shoot at Warped Tour. What happens at Warped stays at Warped with the exception of OFC insider interview of D.R.U.G.S. bass player Adam Russell!

About D.R.U.G.S.

Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, fronted by singer and songwriter Craig Owens, released their debut album, entitled D.R.U.G.S., on Decaydance/Sire Records February 22, 2011.   Two songs off the album, "If You Think This Song Is About You It Probably Is" and "Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm" can currently be heard at www.thisisdrugs.com.

After Owens left his previous band, which he had fronted since 2001, he turned his energy toward creating a new project that would eclipse anything he'd done in the past by founding Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows.  "Over the last 12 months I've done a lot of growing as a human being, as far as figuring out who I am," Owens says. "The idea for this band stemmed from the fact that I wanted to do this right; I wanted to make the biggest band I possibly could, and that's exactly what I've done here."

Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows pairs Owens with other musicians who have undergone similar experiences: From First To Last guitarist Matt Good, Matchbook Romance drummer Aaron Stern, Story Of The Year bassist Adam Russell and Underminded guitarist Nick Martin. Though they had never played together before, they have put their undeniable chemistry as a unit to use creating something vital and new.

Recorded in Los Angeles, CA with John Feldmann, (The Used, Panic at the Disco), Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows' debut is the most aggressive album Owens has made in his musical career, yet it still retains the keen sense of melody that has helped him become one of today's most celebrated frontmen. "It was so cathartic making this record because music is my form of therapy," he explains, "Almost all of our first headlining shows were sold out and we can't wait to start the AP Tour and play for all the fans we haven’t met yet.”
