Punk band AMHERST DRIVE drops debut EP!

Amherst Drive, which formed in Los Angeles in 2017, is the brainchild of experimental multi-instrumentalist Derek KORTEPETER. KORTEPETER uses his lifelong influence of growing up with Southern California’s punk music scene, to create a sound that is unique and also true to his roots.

After two singles, Amherst Drive is back with a debut EP “For Freedom and Democracy”. You can indeed stream this new release below! About this EP, Amherst Drive explains:

The debut EP is called For Freedom and Democracy. It is a very socially and politically minded record, I couldn’t write songs about things I am not passionate about. Many punk bands have waded into politics and exorcising personal demons in their music, so I am hardly the first (Black Flag probably did it the best). I have, however, something to say about the state of my country and myself. I hope that that message is clear in the album.”

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands. I was also writing reviews and interviews for various magazines! I've also created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
