More than half a decade since the 2013 release of their last full-length, Future Fire, San Jose, Calif.’s Stickup Kid have announced that they will return with a new album, Soul Drive, this spring. Soul Drive will be released on May 3, and the band are now sharing the album’s title track, which can be streamed below.

“Soul Drive” follows the 2018 single “You Were All Mine” and “Draining”, which will also be included on the album. Prior to this, the band released a three-song EP, Debris, in 2016. Formed in 2009, Stickup Kid has toured all over the US as well as Japan, appeared at The FEST in Florida, and they’ve shared the stage with everyone from Green Day to The Story So Far to Real Friends to Seaway.

Vocalist Tony Geravesh says about the album:

Soul Drive is that ‘bridge’ record for our band. After some success as teenagers, moving into adulthood and finishing college wasn’t a cake walk by any means. At some point, doing more than one thing in life is just impossible. We all had to place music aside to hash life out – we were all going through individual growing pains, and as friends and band mates, we struggled to see eye to eye. Eventually we broke through to the other side. We came back together from what felt like opposite ends of the world. Our communication improved, our goals aligned, none of us listened to the same kind of music anymore but it was a special feeling jamming again – like we opened a chest full of new sounds and potential. Soul Drive was that chest, the realization of ‘wow, we can be so much more than just another generic pop punk band’. There was this hunger in everyone’s heart to be the best and the humble attitude to reach that goal.

“I just think there comes a time to choose what you want to be – do you want to be a true musician and lifelong student of music, or do you want to be a band that builds a career off of writing the same songs over and over with the same bar chords? We chose, individually and as a band, the former. There was no other option for us.

Soul Drive is the furthest thing from perfect. The furthest. But it is that chest of potential unlocked, it is that ‘take your own reins’ adult realization, it is that bridge between who we were and who we know we will be if we continue to humble ourselves and push push push push to be the fucking best. It’s been an unwritten rule in this band that if anyone doesn’t want to be the best, they can get the fuck out of the band. As you can see though, there’s a reason we’ve had the same members for 10+ years. My boys rise to the challenge and will always continue to do so. Enjoy Soul Drive. We are very excited for the future and you should be too.”

Stickup Kid will be touring the Western US from May 24 – June 3. Keep up with the band on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more. Soul Drive is available for pre-order at
