THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Swirly trips and dirty riffs: Spiral Drive play space-rock with an unmistaken energy. The project of songwriter and producer Raphael Neikes shows how memorable, hypnotizing and iridescently psyche-soaked music can sound.

The project first appeared in February 2018 with the so-called Space Pirates Session, an all-the-way live performed, recorded and self-produced EP. The release displays the band’s foundation as highly skilled live musicians accompanied by a wide range of various psychedelic styles. Earning a promising reputation in the international scene, Spiral Drive began playing festivals and opening shows for acts such as The Vintage Caravan and Mother’s Cake. Not long after, their second single release Infinity got airplay on various radio stations. As a result, the band were offered a partnership with the Vienna-based label Stonefree Records.

While working on their self-produced debut album Unity, they continued playing multiple festivals. Following the release of Unity in 2019, Spiral Drive headlined an extended tour through Germany and Austria.”
