The Submarines are composed of John Dragonetti, who previously performed as Jack Drag, and Blake Hazard, great-granddaughter of F.Scott Fitzgerald. The romantically involved couple collaborated on Hazard's 2002 album "Little Airplane." Following their breakup, the album "Declare a New State!" was created in 2006, with many songs written separately while they were apart, as well as a new band. They are now married.
