The band comments:
“Drunk in London is a song based on a story I was told by a friend. I think the lyrics kinda speak for themselves on this one. Our bassist, Jeromy and I first recorded a demo of this way back in 2004 while we were in another band but that version never saw the light of day. We thought it would be a perfect song for this new album.”
