Drive December guitarist Bob Tallman believes his band has the power to make an impact, and they won’t let anything (including what he calls a “dying scene” in Cincinnati) hold them back. “It seems like everyone’s favorite music is the shit that got them through high school or [the music] that holds special memories to them from their youth. We intend to create that kind of nostalgia with our music.” He cites bands prevalent circa 2002 as influences, but stresses Drive December have a more existential lyrical approach. “We're not 17-year-olds singing about kissing girls and skateboarding, that's for sure.”
