Erica Drive – Better Man

Brit emo punks ERICA DRIVE have just revealed a spanking new video for their engrossing new single, Better Man -which is taken from the band’s captivating new EP,The Hate, The Hurt, The Healing,out on Friday 12th April.

The band were officially born at the beginning of 2017, when
vocalist/guitarist Matt Underdown and guitarist Frank Harding worked on some
initial song ideas, simply for the love of creating music. As the project
gained momentum, long-time friends Sam Firmin (guitar & vocals) and Damien
Carter (drums) joined the ranks. The newly-formed band then hit the
rehearsal room and live circuit, before heading to Ranch Production House to
commence work with Neil Kennedy (Creeper) & Daly George on their self-titled
debut EP.

ERICA DRIVE’s debut EP picked up over 10,000 plays on Spotify. The rising
rockers also dropped two very well-received music videos, and delivered a
barrage of live shows, which massively enhanced their growing reputation.

As the band looked to their next release, they added Damian Bruton (bass) to
boost their already expansive sound. The newly invigorated quintet then
entered the studio to work on their second EP, The Hate, The Hurt, The
Healing, with producer Mike White (Wolf Culture), with mastering duties
handled by John Naclerio (My Chemical Romance). From start to finish, this
EP penetrates the senses. From heavy driven guitar riffs, raw passion and
high energy cuts, to more ambient tones and infectious vocal lines, the
record spits out a plethora of emotions. Vocalist and guitarist, Matt
Underdown, elaborates: “We all get hurt and we all hate to some degree. This
EP for us was a healing process where we channelled bottled up emotions into
each and every note and used it as a relief from the burdens we carried. We
hope “The Hate, The Hurt, The Healing” can act as a catalyst to help others
through hard times, as it has for us.” With tours on the horizon, new
singles and an EP to be released, 2019 is primed to be a colossal year for
the band.
