DDRIVE have been hard at work on their follow up to the critically acclaimed album 3D which was release in the summer of 2010. The band has never been one to rush a project as they believe quality of their recordings is more important than the quantity of releases. DDRIVE are keeping a tight lid on the details of the new album, but promise that the fans of DDRIVE and fans of rock ‘n’ roll will not be disappointed. The new album should see a late fall release.
In the midterm the band have just released this retrospective album to introduce a whole new generation of rock fans to their brand of rock n roll, while giving their loyal and steady followers an album of classics and a taste of what’s to come. “Critical Mass” consists of music recorded between 2004 and 2013 and features 2 bonus tracks, a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “I’m A Little Outside” plus a brand new song called “Ten Things I hate the Most”
