About the meaning behind "Drag me Down," D'Agostino says, "'Drag Me Down' is a song about the decision to stick to your guns and not change yourself for other people." She continues, "I think the music has a really edgy electro-pop feel to it- sort of an eighties throwback, but with a futuristic vibe. The song means a lot to me, it's a reminder to myself as well as an anthem to everyone out there to stay true to yourself."

An accomplished rock band front woman, studio vocalist and lyricist - with placements on major television networks including MTV, Fox Sports, the WB as well as the video game Rock Band, her strengths as a songwriter and vocalist are undeniable. It is her raw energy and captivating live performance - as seen on tour with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and at festivals including SXSW, Summerfest and Warped Tour - that truly set her apart from the pack. Grammy.com heralded her commanding stage presence, exclaiming that her live show will leave audiences "visually blown away" with "bodies pounding to rhythm" - a vigor that has helped develop With Beating Hearts' gripping brand of melodic and danceable electro-pop.

Produced by Blake Harnage of Versa (formerly VersaEmerge), D'Agostino flew out to his studio in Florida to make use of his extensive keyboard and synth collection for "The Wolves." "I think it really made the EP what it is - an edgy, electro-pop EP," she says, "It's definitely a change from The Material, but I think it's always good to try new things and explore your creativity."

About the upcoming release and venturing into the electro genre, D'Agostino says, "I have been working away at my solo project and 'The Wolves' EP for the past year and I am so excited to finally share it with everyone. I think I was itching to break away from the rock world for awhile and it felt good to tap into the electronic pop side of myself." She continues, "I think these tracks really captured the 80s child in me."
