Biography

Cold Driven was formed in early, 2005 by founding member's vocalist Billy Nickell, bassist Dennis Nickell, guitarist Shane Bouthillier and guitarist Ben Bouthillier's mutual passion for creating unique and original music. With the rock solid foundation of this band being brothers 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 year also brought the band a top 5 winning slot in the Vancouver Fox 99.3 Seeds competition.

With recent changes to the band, CD looked to drummer and long time friend Jeremy McLachlan from their hometown of Armstrong, B.C. to become their fifth and final member.

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. ”The Wicked Side Of Me” is set to release May 24th, 2011

Cold Driven has shared the stage with: Default, Thornley, The Veer Union, State Of Shock, Corb Lund, Danko Jones, and Sam Roberts

Lyrics

The Wicked Side Of Me

Written By: Cold Driven

Cutting away
Sever the honesty and all the ties that bind
Cutting away
Suffer the consequence of all the times I've lied

Do you follow the hollow
When you feel like you're all alone
You're so disconnected
So follow the hollow

I'm so addicted now
To the world within
Now you see the wicked side of me
I've had enough
But it pulls me in
Now you see the wicked side of me, side of me

Some kind of rage
Has taken a hold of me and I cannot be saved
Some kind of rage
I don't think I can change myself destructive ways

Do you follow the hollow
When you feel like you're all alone
You're so disconnected
So follow the hollow

I'm so addicted now
To the world within
Now you see the wicked side of me
I've had enough
But it pulls me in
Now you see the wicked side of me, side of me

The wicked side of me
(Me, me, me)
The wicked side of me
(Me, me, me)

(OH)

In the end it's all the same
We're all alone anyways
In the end it's all the same
We're all alone anyways

Do you follow the hollow
When you feel like you're all alone
You're so disconnected
So follow the hollow

I'm so addicted now
To the world within
Now you see the wicked side of me
I've had enough
But it pulls me in
Now you see the wicked side of me
Me
Me
(So now you see)
The wicked side of me
The wicked side of me
