I have been a fan of the Minneapolis band Quietdrive for several years.
I originally saw them at small colleges, first as Sneakers 2 Bombs (singer Kevin Truckenmiller’s and guitarist Matt Kirby’s previous band), and eventually as Quietdrive. They always had a ton of energy and filled up the stage with presence. As a concert photographer, I see a lot of bands perform, and it takes a lot for a live show to impress me. Quietdrive’s shows have always managed to do just that.
It has been almost a year since I last saw QD live, since they have been hiding away recording their soon-to-be released album, Deliverance, which is currently available for pre-order on www.quietdrivemusic.com. (more…)
