Tough Habit

Batter the Drag's brand of rock is complicated but addictive

For Batter the Drag's newer work, "We're using different time signatures and abnormal structures. It's easy to do. The hard part is making it sound natural," says Ruoss. "Our fans come up and say, 'That new song was . . . weird.' I love that. If everyone likes it, there's something wrong with it. But some people like it by the third listen. We're a third-listen-to-enjoy band."

Third listen's the charm: From left, Jeffrey Ruoss, Ryan Richardson, Chad Martin and Wes Volkman make up Batter the Drag.
