Quietdrive Added!

Posted by ToxicDoom | Tuesday, March 03, 2009 |

Quietdrive is a pop punk band based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota that formed in 2002. Quietdrive released their debut album When All That's Left Is You on May 30, 2006 on Epic Records. As of April 2008, Quietdrive has parted with Epic Records and released their newest album, titled Deliverance, on October 14, 2008 with the Militia Group.

Quietdrive initially built a following at THE GARAGE youth center in Burnsville, Minnesota.
The band pursued music venues in Minneapolis but found better connection with younger crowds and stayed between suburban and city clubs. The local scene following eventually led to the Twin Cities performance of Van’s Warped Tour in 2004. Afterward, an A&R scout for Epic Records (a label under Sony BMG) began contacting the band in June 2004. Though the band had been pulling in two different directions, the members came into agreement with the record company and signed to the Epic label later in December. This year (2008) they performed at the Schwans USA CUP in Blaine, MN.

After the CD release into 2007, the band had a lengthy US tour and was featured in January 2007 as the "Artist of the Month" on Xbox Live. Quietdrive with producers Kirkwold and Harley released a new single entitled "Pretend" on their AbsolutePunk.net page in early 2007 for fans. Though the band garnered success with Epic, in April of 2008 they cancelled their contract with Epic Records partly citing the restricting management of the major music industry.

Quietdrive released their second full-length album Deliverance on October 14, 2008

The current line-up of the band is:
  • Kevin Truckenmiller: vocals/Acoustic Guitar/Violin Bass
  • Matt Kirby: Guitar/vocals
  • Justin Bonhiver: Guitar
  • Droo Hastings: Bass
  • Brandon Lanier: drums
