Dronen '284 Days' (album stream)
Southern California rockers Dronen are ready to unleash their latest EP tomorrow (February 3), but you can stream it early, right here on Exclaim.ca.
 
The band have professed their adoration for '90s alt-rock, citing acts like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead as major influences. After delivering their coffee-fuelled debut album Digital Pathways (Analog Pathogens) back in 2013, the group are ready to return with 284 Days.
 
From the initial drum tracks being laid down at the Music Box studio in Irvine, CA, to a couple of life-related pauses and the eventual completion of the album, the process took exactly — you guessed it — 284 days.
 
The aptly titled set shows the band's growth in both recording and songwriting skills. The response from live audiences that they've tested out the new material on has left Dronen both "excited and anxious" for the EP's release.
 
Well, the anticipation is finally over and you can hear the final product now. The self-released 284 Days officially arrives on February 3, and you can stream it in the player below.
