The Driver Era Release Summer Single ‘Malibu’

The band will bring their GIRLFRIEND WORLD TOUR to the UK – headlining for the first time ever – two nights at London’s O2

Alt-pop band THE DRIVER ERA release their brand new single ‘Malibu’. Stream ‘Malibu’ here.

Laced in escapism, brothers Rocky and Ross Lynch wrote the song while daydreaming about personal experiences. “‘Malibu’ is about reminiscing on experiences in the best locations,” the band says. “It’s about getting away. It’s the spontaneous trip you take with someone – maybe you knew them before, or maybe you’re meeting them for the first time”.

‘Malibu’ follows on the band’s recent single, the dance-inspired ‘Keep Moving Forward’ feat. Nikka Costa – premiered by Rolling Stone, who praised the band for “holding onto some real ‘eclectic’ music” – the funky cut and ‘Malibu’ will be featured on the band’s upcoming ‘Summer Mixtape’ due for release in late August.

The upcoming project is the follow up to the band’s second album ‘GIRLFRIEND’, it’s lead single ‘Heaven Angel’ and follow-up tracks #1 Fan’ and Leave Me Feeling Confident’.

Known for what Clash called, “intimate, high energy live show”, the band will bring their GIRLFRIEND WORLD TOUR to the UK – headlining for the first time ever – two nights at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on October 4th and 5th, before heading to Birmingham’s O2 Institute on October 7th and Newcastle’s University on October 8th. The tour will take the band to Glasgow’s O2 Academy for the only Scottish date, before touching Ireland to headline Vicar Street in Dublin on October 11th, before closing the UK leg of their worldwide tour at the Academy in Manchester.
