After playing in a few local bands together, Seth Reger and Ivan Arellano decided to leave the scene in Jacksonville, FL and go west to see what Southern California might have to offer them so they headed to Los Angeles hoping for better opportunities for their musical endeavors. Joel Driscoll, a childhood friend of Seth’s had been living in Orange County for a couple of years already so the three hooked up and started playing together, still in search of a drummer, the one missing piece to complete their band they were randomly introduced to Zach Wood in 2012 and upon hearing him play knew their line-up was complete and Drug The Kids were born.
“Music has always been the driving force in all of us, it constantly improves our lives, gets us through the tough times, we have never needed anything else, it is our perfect drug,” explains singer Seth Reger on the meaning behind the band’s name.
Drug the Kids is- Seth Reger (vocals), Ivan Arellano (guitar), Joel Driscoll (bass) and Zach Wood (drums).
The band started writing songs and playing a few local shows and caught the attention of the folks at Azoff, Geary, Paul Management, (A division of Frontline Mgmt Group) who immediately opened some doors and gave them the opportunity to team up with producers Mike Plotnikoff (Halestorm, All American Rejects), Peter Stengaard (JC Chavez, The Pussycat Dolls, Ashanti) and Dan Estrin (Hoobastank).
Drug the Kids is currently working on their debut album and listeners may be surprised to hear these songs and lyrics coming from a band of twenty-something’s, but these band members have packed a lot of living into their years and it’s all reflected in the music.
