Drive A: Behind the Scenes of 'Trainwreck' -- Exclusive Video
Drive A are one of punk rock's rising stars, and the main key to their success has been their relentless tour schedule. For the past couple of years, the Los Angeles-based quartet has been out on the road with everyone from The Used and Atreyu to Alkaline Trio. Drive A are currently out with Hollywood Undead in support of 'The World in Shambles,' their sophomore album.
The band just released a music video for the album's first single, 'Let's Have a Wreck (Trainwreck),' which won its way onto mtvU's rotation schedule via a grassroots push from Drive A's fervent fan base. Noisecreep has an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the making of the video.
Drive A's guitarist-vocalist Bruno Mascolo recently told Noisecreep about the making of the 'Let's Have a Wreck (Trainwreck)' video.
"Making the video was an intense experience. We knew we wanted to make a video that that told a little bit about the band and the song, but not in a simple format. We wanted the clip to flow like a story and have an almost action movie type of thing to its feel. But mostly, we wanted to play a show, get in a fight, and then go to a strip club [laughter]."
