ABSOLUTExclusive: Driver Friendly Song Premiere
 
This is our last song premiere today (I promise!) and it's a good one. We've teamed up with Hopeless Records again to bring you a new jam from recent signees Driver Friendly. The song is titled "Shark Cave" and will be available tomorrow for purchase on major online retailers like Amazon and iTunes. You can stream it right now at the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. Let us know what you think!

Driver Friendly - "Shark Cave"

Keagan Ilvonen 01/14/13 01:56 PM

Fucking awesome.

Keagan Ilvonen 01/14/13 01:57 PM

Just what I wanted from them. Not the catchiest hook like on the first album but they expanded on everything I wanted them to.

Alex DiVincenzo 01/14/13 02:01 PM

Pretty enjoyable

troymess 01/14/13 02:02 PM

New jam? This was on Bury A Dream...still good none the less

SkyGrowsBigger 01/14/13 02:03 PM

I'm pretty sure this was on their last LP Bury a Dream. Maybe re-releasing as a single?

Anthony Sorendino 01/14/13 02:03 PM

Yes, yes, yes! My favorite track from Bury A Dream.

Slangster 01/14/13 02:03 PM

Yeah, not exactly new. But great nonetheless.

Zack Zarrillo 01/14/13 02:05 PM

I don't get this band

Is Hopeless just re-releasing Bury A Dream?

mattdbf 01/14/13 02:15 PM

cool song!

xBranx 01/14/13 02:15 PM

Great band.

punchlinekid182 01/14/13 02:17 PM

New? This is on the full length

I HOPE that they re-release Chase the White Whale. That album is ridiculously good.

I believe so. Last time I saw them live was at a hometown show in November, and they were saying they couldn't technically sell their newest albums physical copies anymore. So they gave them away for free.

But yes, this is a song from Bury a Dream, which is fantastic. Come back to Beaumont and let's dance, brothers.

Jaytothesyg 01/14/13 02:39 PM

This is pretty good, I liked the other two songs I heard a lot more though.

I should probably check out the album

guitarguy211 01/14/13 02:56 PM

I listened to Bury A Dream once before it mysteriously disappeared. Looking forward to hearing it again. Song is really good.

ALT/MSC/FAN 01/14/13 03:08 PM

This band is unreal. This album just shot into my Most Anticipated of 2013.

These band links don't work, just FYI.

Yeah if I'm not mistaken they were originally called Driver Friendly then had to change it due to a copyright issue so they shortened it to Driver F. Then they changed it back in 2012 to Driver Friendly. Cool story bro!

They don't do anything for me, and I can't see what they do better than anyone else. Just nothing of interest to me. Plus, with the seven members, it just seems like a weird signing. Hard for a band with so many parts to make true traction without becoming a big band.

brokenwings 01/14/13 04:21 PM

I used to stream the album on Spotify when it was still up. Really solid. Some songs like "Harsh Harsh" are fucking amazing. I hope Hopeless finally re-releases the album. It's dumb to make people wait for an album that was out before. I would gladly buy a physical copy of it, but I can't because Hopeless doesn't allow the band to sell the self released copies.

anamericangod 01/14/13 04:29 PM

Very boring song.

SteveLikesMusic 01/14/13 04:31 PM

Not new.

smowashere 01/14/13 04:32 PM

I bet their Hopeless release will be similar to that of Twenty One Pilots on FBR. There will be a few new songs and a bunch of previously-released ones.

What it looks like. If anything, it will give that album a broader audience which is fantastic.

It's not the best choice for their next single, pretty underwhelming compared to what else is on this album. However the previous singles they released (Ghosts and Messadona) are absolutely fantastic (the first being one of my favorite tracks from 2012).

crf1895 01/14/13 05:05 PM

I don't understand how anyone could not like this song. It's fantastic. So is the album.

Haven't listened to Chase The White Whale yet, but if it's any bit as good as Bury A Dream then I'm sold on these guys.

Have you listened to their first album (Chase the White Whale)?

Give it a few listens, then get back to us!

It's not a bad song, but it doesn't seem like single material at all.

JoshSalas 01/14/13 06:17 PM

I got so excited when I saw "new", but then... Oh well. This album rocks.

Do Whatever You Want or Stare Into the Darkness would've been far better choices. Shark Tank is decent but it wouldn't be my go to choice to introduce someone to their sound.

Ryan Gardner 01/14/13 06:58 PM

Love these guys

brothemighty 01/14/13 08:11 PM

I like. I'll check them out

suicidalmoose 01/14/13 08:21 PM

this must be one of my least favourites of the record, but still a solid song

yeah, you're better off introducing them with Shark Cave.

kylecoon 01/14/13 10:05 PM

This song is like 2 years old lol.

Blake Solomon 01/14/13 10:30 PM

a very weird song to me to be the "coming out" song for hopeless. and super weird to call this new, especially here when they have been championed for so long. would have gone with, before this one, "Harsh, Harsh, Harsh," or "You're A Legend, Sir" (since we already premiered "Younce Creek" a year ago). idk, i guess it's just, release this song as new on other lame sites, but give us diehards something we haven't jammed before.

All that being said, for no reason at all other than me being the worst, so stoked for these guys to get a real exclusive on this site that people will check out. just wish it was one of their best songs.

What do you think Hopeless will bring to the table for their label debut?

i guess a re-release? more promotion for this band and tours that sell outside of texas are fantastic, but i hope they can record some new songs too.

They've been posting pictures on Instagram of them being in the studio. If I remember correctly they also posted a picture with what seemed to be a bunch of working song titles.

Good idea. I'd definitely get that if it was pressed.
