Today marks a pivotal moment for Timelost (Philadelphia, PA), as they announce their highly anticipated second full-length album, Drained, through Church Road Records.

“Eternal Vibe is about not giving a fuck about anyone’s opinion anymore. Take your negativity elsewhere because I will not be listening.” – Shane Handal [Guitar/Vocals]
Born out of a dispersed network of friends collaborating digitally, Timelost has undergone a remarkable evolution since their inception. The band has since found its footing in a sound that pays homage to the great alternative rock bands of the past while incorporating a contemporary influence.
Drained represents the latest chapter in Timelost’s musical pilgrimage. Recorded and mixed by the skilled hands of fellow Philadelphian Scoops Dardaris (known for his work with Prince Daddy & The Hyena, They Are Gutting A Body Of Water, Another Michael), the album boasts a rich and dynamic production that brings the band’s sound to new heights. Mastered by Matt Poirier, a luminary in the field whose portfolio includes The War On Drugs, The National, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
With influences reminiscent of iconic bands like Wavves, Weezer, and Dinosaur Jr, Timelost invites listeners to embark on a journey through the raw, unapologetic energy of Drained. The album’s tracks, laden with infectious hooks and introspective lyrics, weave a narrative that reflects the band’s growth and exploration of new musical territories.
About the album, Handal says “Drained is about the continuous beating of life. The state of the world, personal responsibilities, socializing, being in a band, all of it just being exhausting and wanting to burn it down or run away.
We originally wrote 7 songs and it felt tired and too similar to our previous stuff, so we dropped almost all of them and started new. We leaned into a more simple and fun approach to songwriting and ended up writing 18 songs over 2+ years. Drained is the best 10.”
