With a sound both fresh and familiar at the same time, The Dives are continuing a journey that began two years ago. 2017 was filled with exciting firsts for The Dives as the band celebrated their debut release, Everybody’s Talkin’, featuring four original tracks, at a release party doubling as a European tour send-off. In the heart of Greenwich Village, the crowd overflowed from the performance space and, just days later, The Dives were performing their original songs for crowds that reached multiple tens of thousands at hallowed venues like London’s 02 Arena, the SSE Hydro in Glasgow and Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham. The seminal rock weekly, The Aquarian, featured The Dives on their cover and the UK’s Classic Rock Magazine raved, “Songs are everything. And The Dives have them.”
2017 also came with its own challenges as there was a personnel change within the band. However, this allowed the band to regroup, hone their sound and reapply themselves to their passion. The Dives took the new line-up and new songs to Tampa Bay’s popular annual Margarita Festival and won the crowd and the festival promoters and have already been invited back for next year’s festival.
The Dives are currently recording and will be releasing music in the Spring of 2019.
