Band Biographies: Drive By Wire

Simone Holsbeek and lead guitarist Alwin Wubben founded the band in Deventer (2006) writing songs in their basement for the debut album that immediately grabbed the attention of the international press. With Marcel Zerb on bass and Ingmar Regeling behind the drumkit, they are capable of building sonic mountains and psychedelic tapestries of sound.

“Time Horizon” is the band's 5th album and the follow-up from the release of the highly acclaimed last album “Spellbound” (2018) which was very well received by both international press and fans. (“Drive By Wire conjure some supernatural mojo from the start of “Spellbound”..... the hallucinatory undercurrents of „Apollo” are powerful... one of the best songs the Doors never wrote” (Riff Relevant).

Soon after that release, the Covid pandemic hit the world and the band used the hiatus to work on film music. They got a few songs used in American TV series such as Batwoman and Riverdale.

Early 2023 the band retreated to a cabin in the middle of the woods. They set up their gear and just started jamming between the trees and under the stars. The result is this wonderful, spontaneous, and mesmerizing new album. Very unpolished, raw, pure, and with organic vibes.

8 solid songs that take you to a world outside, on a trip through 70′s hard rock and psychedelia. Drive By Wire manages to distill these inspirations into a warm organic sound full of hypnotic heaviness ( Kyuss), and psychedelic echoes of the 70’s (Jefferson Airplane, Heart).

The band has been touring through Europe for the last 17 years, did several headline tours in Greece and Swiss, played most clubs in The Netherlands (Paradiso, Vera, Tivoli) Toured and played with the likes of Kyuss, Blues Pills, Mudhoney, and Fu Manchu. And devoured loads of festival stages (Eurosonic, Generatorfest, Dijkpop, and Zwarte Cross).

Make sure to catch them live; experience a trip to your inner cosmos..and out in the sonic desert.
