Drop Diver was formed in 2018 in a rusty beached houseboat in the side yard of a north Alabama crematorium. This boat would serve as lead singer's, Garrison Lemmond’s home and a sanctuary for him and his friends to host long nights of musical debauchery hidden from the impedimental eyes of adult supervision. In 2019, Drop Diver recorded its debut album at Clearwave Recording Studios with producer Jeremy Stephens and began playing bars, house shows and local festivals. Seasoned and still believing in the DIY ethos, Drop Diver reunited with producer Jeremy Stephens in 2021 to work on their sophomore record "Model Citizens", this time with support from 10 TON RECORDS. “We decided to go with 10 TON because I trust them. It’s a small underground label where the artist has 100% creative control and gets the full attention of the producer. Your music becomes the #1 priority and you get the expertise, resources and support you need to make a great record” (Lemmond). Model Citizens is scheduled to drop in early March 2022 and the band is following the record release with some Northeastern US tour dates. Drop Diver has been described as “raucous” or “dirty” rock and are known for their high intensity and risky live shows. Influences include: The Replacements, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Television, the Kinks & the Pixies.
