Dear DriveByWire Dudes & Dudettes,
First of all we proudly present the video/roadmovie for the song “Sound Of Sand”, (taken fom our album Between Oceans).It was shot during a very cold evening on a remote sandy location…. Featuring an ubercool and very very fast 1966 Ford Mustang GT350 and snakes….what am I blabbering about, just see for yourself:

(No animals were harmed during the making of this video, all stunts as seen in the video performed by professional stunt-musicians. Do not try this at home.)
Our 2nd album “Between Oceans” is out for a couple of months and we received very positive responses and excellent reviews in the press ( OOR, LiveXs etc.) also on the net some really cool reviews ( in Dutch though, more to follow) :
( Album is available in Benelux by Konkurrent, outside Benelux yu can order it by The Gathering Webshop, Studio Metro, Cd-Baby or DriveByWire Headquarters)
And now about the stuff we live for as musicians: playing those kickass songs live!! ( ah!, and you thought it was the girls, loads of free booze, thrashing hotel rooms and more girls, didn’t you?).
Last month we played some fine stages such as Plein 79 in Den Bosch, Bosuil in Weert and we had a awesome night at a cool venue in Delft, called De Koornbeurs ( With Flying Fortress and Oceana Company, 2 awesome bands, go check them out!) but let’s take a look at what the future holds:
->13th March: a Very special night: for the first time in 10 years the Cords will play an exclusive reunion show; with original members; Simone Holsbeek, Maz Morsink and Marc Fabels. ( additional musicians: Alwin Wubben and Jeromé MiedendorpDeBie ). This will take place at a private party at the Burgerweeshuis.
->17th April: DriveByWire will rock the 2 day Stonerfestival Elektra ( Sliedrecht). Some other bands playing there: DeWolff, The Machine, Orange Sunshine, Dexter Jones Circus Orchestra and many others…One Helluva weekend!
->5th May : We have the honour to play an electrifying show at the Bevrijdingsfestival ( with Triggerfinger, amongst others) in Zwolle. ( Free entrance).We’ll play from 20:45 till 21:15 on the Oogst-Stage.
->13th June you can find us sonically shaking the foundations of the Brennels club in Kraggenburg; make sure to check it out, it’s an all new special place, with excellent food (so we’re told!).
->(t.b.a.) November: We’’re asked ( ofcourse we answered “hell yes!”) to play at the prestigious High Times / Cannabis Cup Festival at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. ( exact date and time to be announced).What a psychedelic-grooving-far-out night that ‘ll be dear dudes and dudettes!! Stonerrock indeed…
So if that doesn’t get you in the right spirit we don’t know what will that doesn’t involve doctors prescription or dodgy drugdealers….
Alwin & Simone.
P.S. ; The video wouldn’t be possible without the help of some good friends: Bert van der Molen, Alex Zwalve, Alex Voorend , thanks dudes, you rock!!!!
