Hard-Rock / Metal outfit Inimical Drive have dropped their new single + music video for “Nothing New” (Stripped), which is an acoustic version of the track from their recently released EP From Solitude. As the band turns down the gain on the hard-hitting single, they also have announced an upcoming 12 date West Coast tour with OTEP. Entitled the Sermons of Fire tour, the stint kicks off May 10th in Seattle, and Inimical Drive will play tracks from the much-buzzed new EP along with songs from past efforts.
Inimical Drive has carefully built a reputation in and around St. Louis as being the hardest working band in the metal/rock scene. The longtime friends and band are excited to have their most successful EP to-date topped with a tour alongside a group they have looked up to for nearly two decades. In January of this year, Inimical Drive performed a headlining set at the sold-out Inkcarcertation fest with groups like Papa Roach, Korn and Breaking Benjamin. Back home, the band sells out shows locally and have grown a strong following around the country with grassroots efforts and a strong online presence.
“We are stoked to get out to so many new cities, return to the West Coast and connect in person with fans we’ve made over the years. OTEP was one of the first National acts that Inimical Drive opened for back in 2005, so that’s also incredible. Thanks to the fans for checking out our latest music video, new EP and for making the time to check out our live shows” – Joel Colby / Vocals
