If you like bands like Motion City Soundtrack and New Found Glory, you should check out Driver Friendly, also known as Driver F, a pop-punk band from Austin, Texas. The seven-piece outfit creates a truly original sound by fusing upbeat punk-rock with a horn ensemble.
Their forthcoming album Bury a Dream can now be pre-ordered, and is officially available on April 24. Watch for them later this year!
