In the summer of 2018, a group of young rebels gathered on the shores of northern Alabama, seeking refuge in a rusted beached houseboat nestled among the crematoriums. This was to be the birthplace of Drop Diver, a band of misfits united by a love of raucous, dirty rock and a desire to avoid the watchful eyes of authority.
As time went by, Drop Diver honed their craft, playing bars and festivals across the land. And when the time came to record their sophomore album, they knew just where to turn: to the mad scientists at Clearwave Recording Studios, led by the one and only Jeremy Stephens.
The result was "Model Citizens," a record that captured the raw energy and reckless abandon of Drop Diver's live shows. And with the support of the underground label 10 TON RECORDS, the band set off on a tour of the northeastern United States, spreading their gospel of rock 'n' roll salvation to all who would listen.
For Drop Diver, music is more than just a career - it's a way of life. And as they take the stage, guitars in hand, the ghosts of Iggy Pop and Lou Reed look down from above, smiling at the chaos that's yet to come.
