Cold Driven was formed in early 2005, by founding members and brothers, Billy and Dennis Nickell, alongside Shane and Ben Bouthillier. They recorded their debut album, “Set In Stone” (2005) and established themselves as a fresh new force in music, that revealed a multi-faceted group which thrives on creative exploration and escape.
With the nationwide release of “Steel Chambers” (2007), Cold Driven further reinforced their distinctive sound. On the strength of those songs, and extensive touring across Canada in 2008, CD pushed their first single “Heavier Than Heaven” to number 51 on the Canadian rock charts, solidifying a strong fan base across the country.
The group is fresh out of the studio from recording an explosive third record “The Wicked Side Of Me” with producer Danny Craig from platinum recording artists Default, and was mixed by Dave Ogilvie (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails). The EP also features sequencing tracks from master mind Ogilvie.
