Drunk As Usual having battled vocalist issues and their demons has returned from a 15 year hiatus. Having new vocalist Zack at the helm backed up by guitarist Hoppy Johnson, bassist Soda Pop, and drummer Veeder Layne, Drunk As Usual with their sound like no other, and love for music creation, has re-grouped and is back better, faster, and stronger than ever. Zack who grew up surrounded by the Drunk As Usual influence and offspring of Hoppy Johnson is an essential part of the band and the old school modern sound they’ve strived to achieve. Drunk As Usual is a band of brothers and one son ready to introduce the world to the universe of “Reality Rock”.
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
By John Larson for the Tacoma Weekly
"Drunk As Usual is a classic American hard rock band. They play loud. They have fun. Their music doesn't push a political agenda or seek the meaning of life. They have a blue-collar mentality that fits a band from Tacoma."
GIRLS GONE WILD
By Matt Driscoll TacomaReporter
"What do you get when you mix large amounts of alcohol, a love for half-naked women and an overall desire to have a good time? If you said the makings of an awesome girls-gone-wild video your right, but it just so happens it's also the formula for Tacoma's own Drunk As Usual."
Get Drunk As Usual
By Ellen Ross The Challenger
"Tacoma based band Drunk as Usual (DAU) could be the gateway drug to local Heavy Metal. They are the number one band for the third week on Seattle based GiantRadio.com and are on the verge of releasing their debut album 'We'll name it When We're Sober.'"

We present you our Second. Sunny Day.
We present you our first. A somewhat depressing ballad of a drunk that has hit bottom known simply as 'Wisdom'.
This band has one of the best schichts I have seen in a long time. There is not one single serious lyric on the whole album (except the somewhat depressing ballad of a drunk that has hit bottom known simply as 'Wisdom). No messages they want to enlighten you with. No army's on horseback wielding mighty swords ready to thwart their foe. This is music about drinking, for drinking, & made by people that are probably drinking right now as you read this! This band wears the tag of "Drunk losers" with pride and I support their cause with every sip.
