Drive By Wire operates from the sultry town Deventer in the middle of the Low Lands.

Psych Stoner Rockers – Drive By Wire – offer an intriguing and unique mixture of fuzz-laiden Desert/Stoner Rock grooves and trippy, hazy vocals of Simone Holsbeek;

A trip through the dusty desolate desert landscape, the swampy river delta, home to the band, 70's psychedelica, but also heavier themes inspired by t the harsh reality of life and struggle with personal demons. Drive By Wire manages to distill these inspirations into a warm organic sound with the urgency and dynamics of 90's grunge (Soundgarden, Alice in Chains), the sensuality of PJ Harvey and the deliciously heavy psychedelic fuzz grooves of 70's bands such as Black Sabbath...
Already released 3 albums, playing numerous shows throughout Europe , touring with bands such as Mudhoney and Kyuss Lives), Drive By Wire shifted into highest gear last year through playing some bigger festivals, lots of headlineshows and a special vinylrelease.
Fortunately, they didn't kick back and relax, but hit back hard in 2017 with the new single "Blood Red Moon"

"Blood Red Moon" was recorded and produced by Guido Aalbers (QOTSA, Muse) and shows the band at its best; they captured their unique sound in a bulldozer of a track that would make Josh Homme shake his hips!

Besides this new single, the worldwide record deal with Argonauta Records, and a new tour in 2017 through France,Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and United Kingdom makes it clear that 2017 will be a big year for Dutch Desert Rockers Drive By Wire!

A must see / hear experience for fans of Them Crooked Vultures, Blues Pills, PJ Harvey, Kyuss, Black Mountain, Sonic Youth.
