DIVE is a straightforward band of aggressive and melodic rock that compares to the sounds of Three Days Grace, Hoobastank and Linkin Park. DIVE formed back in 2003, taking time to create and focus their sound while playing local club and bar gigs around their hometowns. In 2007, The Truth About Us was self-released and eventually gained widespread attention for this dynamic band. The band spent the 2009 holidays at the legendary 4th Street Recording Studios in Santa Monica, CA to record their sophomore album "Picture Perfect" with producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, No Doubt, Live, Jacks Mannequin). The album was released through Sony RED on 5/11/2010 and is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and in stores at FYE, Hot Topic and Barnes and Nobles.
In 2010, Dive headed to the new Meadowlands Stadium (Metlife Stadium) in East Rutherford, NJ to be one of the first bands to ever play the new stadium along side Bon Jovi and Train. They have also played with acts such as: Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, Fuel, Halestorm, Sum 41, RED, Eve 6, The Ataris, My Darkest Days, Trapt, Creed, Saving Abel, Ryan Cabrera, 12 Stones, Taproot, Adema, Hawthorne Heights and many more!
On March 20th 2012 the band released "The Acoustic EP" which featured 4 tracks from previous albums stripped down and raw and 1 brand new song called "Goodbye". The Acoustic EP is available on iTunes and everywhere music is sold online! Dive hit the road to perform with Fuel, Black Stone Cherry, Cavo, and Psychostick to promote the release!
DIVE has been on tour for the last year headlining shows across the country as well as a full tour supporting Taproot. They plan on releasing a new album later in 2013!
