2.25.14 Music video is underway for our freshly released single titled “Friend.” The great folks at Tone Two Art Studio and Adlais Recording Studio in Murfreesboro, TN were awesome hosts in allowing us to film the accompanying performance for our newest track. Be on the lookout for our next single sometime in March – We’re also beginning to put together 2014 dates and look forward to seeing you all!
2.1.14 SINGLE LEAK! We are absolutely stoked to start sharing our newest work with everyone. We are taking a different approach this time with releasing music. We’ve had the pleasure of recording with Chase Cawthorn @ Adlais Studio here in Murfreesboro, TN, and what started as an attempt to lay grounds for new demo tracks quickly became a venture to complete a new album. This is not something that’s going to happen overnight, so in the interest of providing new music to all you lovely people, we’ll be posting new tracks once a month for as long as we can complete them. The end result will be our sophomore effort following 2012’s “Irene.” Thanks everyone for the support and check our newest track, “Friend” on Soundcloud.
1.4.14 – Happy New Year to all! We’ve spent the past month mixing a few new singles, and we will be releasing music soon. We’ve also started lining up dates for the new year. Check back here for all the info or like us on Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/mizeandthedrive

UPDATE 10.7.13 – We’re faced with the task of turning 10 or so ideas into fully developed studio-worthy songs. We’ve only put the skeleton tracks down for two new singles, but it’s going to be a long winter full of creativity and development. Stay tuned for samples and inklings of what is to come; we are confident that this will be some of the best work we’ve laid down together as a group. It doesn’t hurt that we’ve added the talented multi-instrumentalist Tom Seymour back into the mix. He was with the band for a short time as a bass player during our founding year but has came back with fresh ideas and smooth complementary work on the keys. We’ll release some samples from our work in the coming months and hope you enjoy. Be on the look-out for our live schedule starting back in 2014 – We are looking forward to it! Thank you all for the continued support. We’ll see you soon!
We’ve been busy at Adlais Studio in Murfreesboro over the past month. Drum and bass tracks are complete, and we’ve moved on to guitars with saxophone, keys, and vocals soon to follow. We’ll have a couple new singles floating around soon, so stay tuned. Also, we are absolutely thrilled to be playing at Music in the Middle festival this October. Festival flyer is below and lineup schedule should be released soon!
