YUCA Releases Video For “Maybe We’ll Riot”

The long awaited video for YUCA’s new single, “Maybe We’ll Riot” just released!  The song is an epic shout out of the soul for freedom from the confines society places upon the individual.  If you’ve ever felt like you needed to break free and just be YOU, then “Maybe We’ll Riot” will be the battle cry of your inner being.

They actually filmed it with members of the RCMP, (that’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police for those who don’t know!).  The video shows Matt Borck, frontman for the band, handcuffed as he moves from police car to cell.  But then there’s a twist…

Lyrics for MAYBE WE’LL RIOT:

We’re sick of dodging stones here 
And we’re sick of all the lies that have infested in our homes 
So much fire still flows through our veins
And us soldiers still have so much fight and power in our bones 

Yeah, we’ll light this place on fire
Yeah, we’ll fuel it with desire 

We’re sick of them degrading us
and you know, you know who you are
and we’re sick of all the bastards always
grinding us to the ground
if they’re not careful we will start a war
maybe we’ll riot for all the things we’re dreaming for
the things we’re dreaming for 

Yeah, we’ll light this place on fire
Yeah, we’ll fuel it with desire

Yeah, we’ll light this place on fire 

Yeah, we’ll light this place on fire
Yeah we’ll fuel it with desire

The New Driven YouTube Play List Show

yt logo

We’re always looking for new ways to help independent bands reach a larger audience.

Yesterday I found a really cool Tweet at @NewDriven from a new band to our show, Stillman.


The tweet got me thinking about something that had crossed my mind the week before while I was taping the EXCESS show – somehow doing a show segment that was based upon music video’s.
After mulling it over, this is what we’re going to do:
The EXCESS show will now feature a YouTube video playlist segment where we’ll spin the music based upon the playlists we create on YouTube.  Band interviews will be based on the video’s as well.  Our audience will have the opportunity to learn the back story to the video’s as well as get to know their favorite bands better.
We’ll be looking for professionally produced video with exceptional music. That doesn’t mean the video had to cost thousands of dollars to produce. It means it has to be a cool and interesting concept, (video), pulled off VERY well.

The Como Brothers Commercial For Canon Camera’s – New Driven Cameo!

New Driven is so proud for brothers Matt and Andrew Como.  The duo, who come from Long Island, NY, have recently garnered sponsorship with Canon. In a just-released commercial for Canon, the brothers are shown going through the process of creating a new single. We watch them writing the song and, finally, in the recording studio. In the background we hear “Late Nights”, the single The Como Brothers Band released during summer of 2013.



At the 46 second mark we see the guys pulling up Facebook on an Ipad. And what do they pull up? The New Driven page! Yep, New Driven gets a cameo on the Como Brother’s Canon commercial!

Thanks to Matt and Andrew!  We love you guys.



We had the pleasure of interview Matt and Andrew in July of 2013.  Click the image below to listen to the interview!

Saying Goodbye To Cruisin and Torqued Shows

Sunset Riot-great news

One thing in life is certain. Everything changes. It’s inevitable. And, it’s a GOOD thing.

Here’s the theme song for this post by Mr. David Bowie: CHANGES. Play it in the background as you read this. It lends good ambiance.



Time does change everything. We are very excited about the changes coming to NEW DRIVEN.

Like the title of this post says, the CRUISIN and TORQUED shows are going away end of January.  They had their day.  They were fabulous in that they brought professional level indie rock to a new level and a new audience.  But evolution is in the air. They were, alas, just an opening act.

We are thrilled to announce two new shows to take the place of Cruisin and Torqued debuting February 3rd:

NEW DRIVEN REVOLUTION will take up where CRUISIN & TORQUED left off.  I’ll combine the music from both shows, (both soft and hard rock) into one show that also includes artist interviews from time to time.  The show will be syndicated.  It will be a 2-hour weekly show. Focus will be on new-release music.

NEW DRIVEN EXCESS will be a weekly, syndicated 2-hour show that plays like a live show. There will be a co-host, Ryan Keeton, front man of Kalance Theory, and various guests who pop in and out. All New Driven music will be featured on the show as well.

We’re looking to get the shows on more radio stations than ever before and to a far wider audience.

Lastly, this is only the beginning. There’s another big announcement coming your way soon.  Hold on to your socks.

YUCA Stands Up And ROAR’s

We love it when bands let down their hair and have some fun.

Taking a short departure from their own, amazing original music, Vancouver, Canada band YUCA tries their hand at a popular Katy Perry song: ROAR.

We love the passion in this video – Matt gives the song his all and takes it new a new level.

Is that YUCA’s studio where they’re taping? Pretty impressive!
