This week’s edition of New Driven EXCESS holds a special treat for those who love modern rock.  We share our recent conversation with Jimmy Allen.

Jimmy began his career with Puddle of Mudd.  He penned their biggest hits, including “Blurry” and “She Hates Me”.

Creative people must create and grow however, so Jimmy formed a new band about 5 years ago: Against All Will.

I must admit that although I liked Puddle of Mudd, I LOVE Against All Will.

Make sure to listen to our interview with Jimmy this week on the EXCESS Show.

You can also catch the conversation on this week’s edition of our YouTube playlist.  You’ll find three of Against All Wills’ music video’s there too.  Life IS Good.

Maybe We’ll Riot: YUCA Tells All

"Maybe We'll Riot" video shoot ends with visit from Canadian police.

“Maybe We’ll Riot” video shoot ends with visit from Canadian police.

 

There’s always something new going on with fast-rising indie bands.  They’re the busiest people on earth.  So, it should come as no surprise that successful active rock band, YUCA, released another killer single on March 24th: “Maybe We’ll Riot”.

Over the past week, Matt, Andy and Dave have been busy in production for the corresponding music video.  Ironic, given the name of the song, that the police showed up and showed some muscle!  Okay, maybe it was all fun and games but the point of the song – and the video – is taking back the reigns of your own life – being the YOU that you really are.  YUCA celebrates individuality and breaking away from everything that keeps you from being real.

We spoke with Matt Borck, lead singer about the details.  His take on things is always profound and insightful.  He also shared some juicy information about the band, new tours and where inspiration comes from.

We’ll bring you the video soon as it drops.  In the meantime, enjoy their killer video for “I’m Alive She Said”.  Shot in Tokyo while on tour in Japan, this video takes in the nightlife of this beautiful and exotic city.  Make sure to watch the faces of the people in the crowd.  They didn’t expect to be a part of a music video!

The New Driven YouTube Play List Show

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.

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.

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.
