ABOUT A SKYLIT DRIVE:
Great vision, that’s what it takes to refuse to rest on previous success and instead focus on what you need to become in the future, which is exactly what Lodi, California’s A Skylit Drive continues to achieve with every album. Vocalist Michael “Jag” Jagmin, guitarist Nick Miller, bassist/screamer Brian White, drummer Cory La Quay and keyboardist Kyle Simmons, officially exploded onto the scene in 2007 with their EP She Watched the Sky. They followed that release up with three full-length albums titled Wires and the Concept of Breathing, Adelphia and Identity on Fire, which all charted on the Billboard Top 200, and their live DVD Let Go of the Wires.
A Skylit Drive has toured extensively with similar artists like Blessthefall, Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil, and Of Mice & Men; as well as contributing songs to the well known compilations Punk Goes Classic Rock and Punk Goes Pop Vol 4. A Skylit Drive’s musical resume would be enough of a career for most bands, but they have no intentions of slowing down. In fact, the band believes they are just hitting their stride. They released their new single Rise (the title track of their upcoming album) to critical acclaim and assured their fans that this was just a taste of things to come. Rise, which will be available on September 24, 2013, joins the essential characteristics of A Skylit Drive’s signature sound heard on Wires and the Concept of Breathing while showcasing a wide spectrum of tones, textures and song structure.
