Ahead of their support run alongside Dayseeker, which kicks off today in Buffalo, NY, Rain City Drive has issued a collaborative single, “Medicate Me,” with vocalist Rory Rodriguez

“‘Medicate Me’ is about chasing the high of a toxic relationship to escape boredom/complacency,” frontman Matt McAndrew shares of the new release. “Featuring Rory Rodriguez from Dayseeker, produced by Daniel Braunstein, mixed by Zakk Cervini, it was a blast to bring this song to life with such talented people.”

Together, McAndrew and Rodriguez harmonize seamlessly, their vocals entangling through the vibrant instrumentation and culminating in a chorus that is both mesmerizing and infectious. “Medicate Me” stands simultaneously as one of Rain City Drive‘s “heaviest and most pop leaning songs to date,” offering a tantalizing glimpse into their “ambitions and hard hitting third album.”

Rain City Drive will be supporting Dayseeker across the North American leg of the Dark Sun Worldwide tour through May. The group will also perform at Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple before their their overseas headline tour this fall. Grab tickets to see them live here.
