Sugar Red Drive has released their self-titled debut via Sugarbear Records. Hailing from Poughkeepsie, NY, Sugar Red Drive consists of Archit Tripathi (Vocals), Jim Knauss (Guitars), Davey Alexander (Bass), and P.J. Gasperini (Drums). Influenced by bands like Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and Led Zeppelin, Sugar Red Drive bring a strong alternative sound, with infectious rock and earnest, sincere songcraft, including album single, “One More Time,” which features churning riffage and snarling lead vocals. Billboard Magazine claims, “the track has a muscular foundation and a just-right fit of aggression and hooks that set the band up for an impressive start.” In support of the recent release, Sugar Red Drive turn to the road for a set of dates with Papercut Massacre.
Head over to the band’s MySpace page to hear the first single, “One More Time,” and to see when they will be in a city near you. Make sure to pick up your copy of their self-titled album in stores everywhere!
