San Jose rock / pop punk band Stickup Kid have released their second full-length, Soul Drive, the follow up to their acclaimed 2013 LP, Future Fire released on Billie Joe Armstrong’s now-defunct Adeline Records.
Soul Drive is that “bridge” record for our band. After some success as teenagers, moving into adulthood and finishing college wasn’t a cake walk by any means. At some point, doing more than one thing in life is just impossible. We all had to place music aside to hash life out – we were all going through individual growing pains, and as friends and band mates, we struggled to see eye to eye. Eventually we broke through to the other side. We came back together from what felt like opposite ends of the world. Our communication improved, our goals aligned, none of us listened to the same kind of music anymore but it was a special feeling jamming again – like we opened a chest full of new sounds and potential. Soul Drive was that chest, the realization of “wow, we can be so much more than just another generic pop punk bandTony Geravesh – Vocalist of Stickup Kid on Soul Drive
The album is available on Spotify now.
Stickup Kid will be hitting the road later this month with a run of west-coast US dates. Glacier Veins and Till I Fall will support on all dates.
