Rahway's latest release "Drowning" is an unveiling portrayal of the perils of living in a world where everyone is obsessed with projecting a perfect image. In this song, Rahway fearlessly delves into the darker tunnels of our concocted lives and uncovers the emptiness that hovers under the guise of our falsely portrayed mounds of muck. The lyrics paint an honest peer into how false projections can cause one to drown in their own facades, all while they seek approval by any crafted means.
Although, "Drowning" digs into a serious social media premise it holds a danceable, fist-pumping, anthemic sound of rock. The rough and gruff vocals of Nick Hade rumble inside and the wicked pisser guitar work pulsing from David Cardenas's axe is downright dirty. The band together has taken "Drowning" and created a stadium rock sound - one that you would gladly introduce your friends to, but may not take home to momma. This is one hella kick ace song to get you rocking. This is ROCK at its finest.
Keep watch in 2023, for Rahway is set to release a new EP!
"In an era where social media has become a battleground for validation and self-worth, Rahway fearlessly explores the dark underbelly of fabricated lives. "Drowning" captures the essence of a person drowning in their own falsehoods, desperately seeking approval through carefully crafted images and narratives. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of the individual's relentless pursuit of a mirage, ultimately exposing the hollowness that lies beneath the surface." - Rahway

Rahway, also known as the Slumlords of New Jersey, mixes heart with the hardest blistering rock this side of the Rocky Mountains. They’ve ensured to get any crowd moving with their intense guitar-driven live show. Rahway is a nonstop rock fest with an unlimited amount of energy, guaranteed in every performance. Since rolling out of New Jersey's industrial wasteland, Rahway to be exact, these perennial rock underdogs are ready to take over the world! David Cardenas, guitarist, his brother and drummer Steve Cardenas, along with vocalist Nick Hade and bassist Chigger, had to overcome the adversity of releasing their 5-song EP, Slumlords of New Jersey, in the middle of a pandemic featuring the widely popular songs “Sugar,” “Stone,”
“Only The Strong” and “Acetalyne.”
Fully capturing the spirit of today's DIY musicians, these four badasses, with their musical genius, do something truly revolutionary in the rock-n-roll scene. Their music holds fist-pumping and grinning sexual innuendo, with choruses that ring in your ears from the first listen and hooks that boomerang through each song. Embodying the down-to-earth Jersey roots, but rolling the rock to a whole other edgy level. Rahway has been an enormous part of the East Coast music scene, playing shows with such rock greats like Buckcherry, Slash, Three Days Grace, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots, Puddle of Mudd, Skid Row, KIX, and Ace Frehley and they even shared the stage with Missing Persons one time. They've done high-profile gigs like sold out show with Greta Van Fleet at the F.M. Kirby Center, as well as venues like Dingbatz, Stone Pony, Crocodile Rock Café, Starland Ballroom, and played the inaugural Food Truck and Rock Carnival in Clark, NJ in 2015 and the inaugural Rock ‘n Derby Festival in Schaghticoke, NY the following year, where they left the crowds in amazement.
Rahway's innovative and ever-evolving songwriting makes them one of the most eminent bands of our time. Influenced by legends such as Led Zeppelin, Guns n Roses, Skid Row, Godsmack, and Motley Crue, their fusion of power is gaining popularity very quickly.
In 2023, Rahway is set to release a round of brand-new music in the form of singles culminating in a new EP featuring songs like the ball-rocking “Carry You,” the catchy hooks of “Drowning,” the head-bopping “Cats Away” and the arena rocker “Rocketship.”
