Tonight Alive Release Music Video for “Drive”

tonight aliveTonight Alive are bringing the early 2000s back in a big way in their new music video for “Drive,” from their latest album, Limitless.

The single is pop-driven, and more upbeat than we’ve heard from the band in previous years. “Drive” is an infectious tune, with plenty of “sing-along” moments, and the video is reminiscent of the videos from pop superstars and pop-rock bands alike in the years 1999-2003.

Disagree? Let us know in the comments! Check out the video below!

Brother Moses Releases New Single “Crazy Eyes”

And if you already want to do all of these things, then this is essentially your anthem (mine too). Mark my words, Brother Moses will be one to watch this year!
