History[edit]

Driver Friendly formed in 2002 while the members attended The Woodlands High School (North Houston).[5] The members met each other while in marching band. In 2004 the band relocated to Austin, Texas where they self released two albums (Chase the White Whale and Bury A Dream).[6] In 2012 the band released a music video for the song Messidona which paid tribute to the band's favorite Tom Hanks films.[7] The music video generated enough buzz to capture a tweet from Tom. The act of having their music video tweeted by Tom Hanks was said to be "The greatest honor in the history of everything."[8]
