  • The lead single from SaVages, the song was produced by longtime Theory of a Deadman collaborator Howard Benson (Halestorm, My Chemical Romance). It was made available to radio and released to iTunes on April 22, 2014.
  • Frontman Tyler Connolly explained the song's meaning: "'Drown' is about being alone, the feeling of being washed away and left to your own devices," he said. "We've all felt that way at some point in our lives; unable to stay afloat, we sink to the bottom which always seems easier in the end than fighting your way back to the surface."
