Drive A is leading the way to usher in a new generation of punk that harkens back to the old days of punk. The young quartet (Bruno Mascolo on vocals, Jason Nott on guitar, Cody Root on drums and Taylor Knowles on bass) pride themselves on delivering raw, honest punk songs that pack a punch of equal parts substance and asskicking. Their debut album “Loss of Desire” offers up songs that we can all connect with – anger, frustration and malcontent.
The band recently wrapped up the Bamboozle Road Show tour which saw them sharing the stage with the likes of Hanson and Boys Like Girls. Not where you’d expect to find a rising punk band but these guys made the best of it by poaching as many fans as they could and bringing them over to the Drive A side.
After spending most of the year on the road the band feels closer than ever and is letting the creativity flow as they work on their follow-up album. They also just announced that they’ll be hitting the road in September and October with Escape the Fate and Bullet For My Valentine where they’ll hopefully be trying out some of their new material.
We recently caught up with outspoken front man Bruno Mascolo who was as brutally honest as we had hoped.
