"A Sliver Of Light!" Just For You...
The first Dramedy record, "A Sliver Of Light," is now available for purchase! Containing the songs from “And The Light Goes White” that have been released as music videos, as well as "Light Amalgamation," a 16 page fanzine ONLY available with this release. Due to the unique production of a lathe record, "A Sliver of Light" is LIMITED to just 20 copies.
You can order your own copy here! Orders start shipping Friday Aug13th!
The Dramedy's FIRST record, "A Sliver Of Light!"
Some exciting news to share. TheDramedy will be releasing it's first ever PHYSICAL RECORD—the first in a series—this coming Friday August 6th! (Just in time for Bandcamp Friday ;).) The record, titled "A Sliver Of Light,” contains the collection of songs from “And The Light Goes White” which have been released as music videos, which include fan favorites such as "Parasite," and “Waiting on You.”
The record is also a bit unique, as we used an old-school (and experimental) process known as “lathe cut.” They’re made one at a time, by hand, which gives it a more lived-in sound (think of what a record sounded like back in the 40s and 50s). While it has a bit more surface noise than a traditional pressed record, we recommend you CRANK the volume to really hear the album in all it’s glory.
Because of the nature of the recording, "A Sliver Of Light" is limited to 20 copies. Also included with the record is a 16-page fanzine, which includes outtakes, working lyrics, and other fun stuff related to the making of ATLGW. Preorders are available starting Friday, exclusively on Bandcamp. Orders will ship Friday, August 13th (spooky right?).

Sounds + Shadows Album Review
Another review for the new album "And The Light Goes White!" This time courtesy of "Sounds And Shadows," who lumps The Dramedy in good company alongside Twin Tribes, Christian Death and Aesthetic Perfection to name a few.
Album Review by The Dramedy's First Fan!
We're just four days away from the release of the new record "And The Light Goes White," and the first review is in! I'm honored that it comes from an important individual in the world of The Dramedy by the name of Francisco Ezequiel. I officially christen Francisco as The Dramedy's first fan (aka public enemy #1) because he was someone who's been there since beginning (at least, who I didn't already know). Given our history, it's only fair that he writes the first review for the new record. So read on! If there's anyone that knows theDramedy it's this man right here!
