Driver Friendly is an American rock band with horns from Austin, Texas. In October 2012, the band announced that they had been signed to Hopeless Records. The band played at Warped Tour 2013 and toured with Motion City Soundtrack and Relient K in the fall of 2013.
Driver Friendly formed in 2002 while the members attended The Woodlands High School (North Houston). 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). In 2012 the band released a music video for the song Messidona which paid tribute to the band's favorite Tom Hanks films. 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."
