UK pop rock band Club Drive head to Manchester’s Sound Control this weekend during their first national headline run which also takes in London’s The Garage and a sold-out show in Birmingham.

The Hertfordshire four piece have certainly been making a name for themselves, with their pop rock (with a touch of funk) catching the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Introducing Team, and garnering airplay across the network.

The band’s latest single Spare Time, which nods the likes of Maroon 5 and Rixton, was added to the Radio 1 playlist on Friday and follows their debut EP Dangerous which came out last year.  Mirroring the song’s lyrical theme, the video reflects how people behave outside of their normal day-to-day life. Shot in southern Spain and following a group of friends on a weekend adventure, it features stunning cinematic imagery with heaps of sunshine – the perfect setting for Club Drive’s uplifting anthem.

Club Drive played a sold-out intimate EP launch show at The Islington in September last year, alongside a main stage slot at Liverpool’s Fusion Festival with the likes of Craig David and Jason Derulo.

As well as headline shows, Club Drive will also be making a number of festival appearances, including The Great Escape, Lovebox, Live At Leeds and a main stage slot at this year’s Standon Calling alongside Clean Bandit, Editors, Gary Numan, Laura Mvula and many more.

Club Drive perform at Manchester’s Sound Control on Saturday 18 March 2017.
