Melbournian math punk boys DriveTime Commute are back with the release of their new breakneck single SHARKITECT, taken from their forthcoming EP due for release in early 2016.
This new track follows the success of singles SIR SEIZURE + GENGHIS KHAN’T which received plays on Triple J’s Short. Fast.Loud. and Triple J Unearthed. The scale of their live shows has quickly escalated to include support slots for both national and international touring acts including ‘Make them Suffer’ (Perth), ‘Belle Haven’ (Melbourne), ‘Chelsea Grin’ (USA) and ‘Norma Jean’ (USA).
Mashing together a dirty attitude with badass experimental rhythms, DriveTime Commute’s fat sound sews together elements of Punk, Hardcore and Mathcore. With filthy punk guitars, metal-influenced levels of technicality and a singer with more personality than a randy Bob Hawke, SHARKITECT is the fresh mutation of the DriveTime Commute pandemonium. Again mastered by legend Howie Weinberg (Metallica, Soundgarden, The YeahYeah- Yeahs), SHARKITECT is both awful and audible; both horrible and hi-fi.
Comprised of a Scotsman, a dripping wet skinsman, two brothers and a young Australian countryman, DriveTime Commute is a dysfunctional marriage of varied influences and cultures.
In support of the launch of SHARKITECT, DriveTime Commute are being unleashed upon the ears of the innocent in Melbourne and across regional Victoria:
The Public Bar – North Melbourne (20th Nov)
Secret Show – Melbourne (24th Nov)
Music Man Megastore – Bendigo (11th Dec)
The Loft – Warrnambool (12th Dec w/Mammoth Mammoth)
