Rain City Drive (formerly Slaves) are embracing their next chapter with a powerful combination of authenticity and fervor, true to themselves, their fans, and the legacy they now want to create for the next generation of the band. Their new album (title TBA) is their second with frontman Matt McAndrew (NBC’s The Voice Season 7, coached by Adam Levine), bringing a refreshing pop-melodic swagger to the heavy riffs and songsmanship that has helped them amass a staggering 278 million streams equivalent to 263K album sales across their catalog. With their new single “Cutting It Close”, which premiered on SiriusXM Octane, the band kicks off a new era ahead of their new album release in spring 2022, providing a breath of fresh air in a genre ready for a shakeup.
Hailing from Palm Coast, FL, post-hardcore powerhouse RAIN CITY DRIVE have followed the announcement of their official name change with the release of a brand new track and music video, “Cutting It Close“. The track is the first new music released under the band’s new name and since signing to Thriller Records.

We’re so excited to share the first song from our new album with you. “Cutting It Close” is about a relationship that’s hanging on by a thread. Shout out to Erik Ron for helping us bring this track to life. We hope you enjoy it and we can’t wait to show you what’s next!
