Originally called MK Ultra, doubleDrive arrived on the music scene in their hometown of Atlanta in 1996. After winning the award for Atlanta’s favorite “metal/extreme band” in 1998, doubleDrive signed a record deal with MCA Records and subsequently released their first studio album, the self-produced 1000 Yard Stare, in August 1999. The single from this album, Tattooed Bruise, rose to #17 on Billboard’s Rock Radio airplay charts

In 2001, doubleDrive began recording a second album with producer John Kurzweg. However, the band subsequently parted with MCA Records and the completed album remained unreleased.

After shopping the album, the band signed with Roadrunner Records and re-entered the studio in 2002 with well-known producer Michael Barbiero to remix part of the album, and to record new songs. The resulting album, Blue in the Face, was released in April 2003. This album yielded a #14 single, the song Imprint. Imprint was also featured on ESPN’s Major League Baseball coverage that same year.

doubleDrive toured extensively in the US and Australia, sharing stages with bands such as Sevendust, Kid Rock, Godsmack, Our Lady Peace, Clutch, Type O Negative, Shinedown, Silverchair, Queensrÿche, Finger Eleven, Megadeth, Seether, Tesla, Stereomud, Revis, 12 Stones, Cold, and many others…

On December 3, 2003, doubleDrive played their final show at the Cotton Club in Atlanta.

Singer Donnie Hamby is now doing DVD work (including Sevendust’s Southside Doublewide Acoustic Live and Next DVDs, a live Edwin McCain DVD, and many others); guitarist Troy McLawhorn now plays with Dark New Day, Evanescence

    It is a shame when great bands like this break up, they were so much better than the shitty music that gets played on mainstream radio.

    I think Blue in the Face is more consistently great but both albums were fantastic. Troy's with Seether and I'm so glad Donnie is doing the Violent Plan thing!

    I can't believe there are so few listeners and plays for this band. They are so good! They need more recognition.

    Oh my god. How can I be a Weekly Top Listener, I only listened to them 25 times apparently. That's pretty crap. But damn they deserved more.

    I think horrible promotion and lack of a label push killed them ;)

    Yet another band that I killed. Sorry about that. I started listening to them before I was aware of my curse. :(
