The newly-reorganized American Drive is headed for the studio this weekend to start work on their sophomore CD. A debut single is expected in February, with a full CD to be released later this year.
In the meantime, the band has shared this video compilation showcasing their new sound with Adam McIntosh on guitar and vocals, and Shayne Bartley on banjo. Sounds like solid mainstream bluegrass to me.
Dwight McCall is on mandolin/vocals, Matt Despain on reso-guitar/vocals, and Kyle Perkins on bass.
