ROCK - Alternative
Formed in early 2003, Capitol Drive is an alternative rock band out of Milwaukee, WI.
The band consists of Mike Howard (guitars/vocals), Ben Glawe (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Dan Shafer (bass), and Alex Bunke (drums, vocals). Each member comes from a different musical background, and each brings their own unique musical tastes to the table.
In July of 2003, they recorded their first "album," entitled That Was Glorious. Recorded in one take in a lonely basement, the album showed a young band trying to find its sound. A year later, they started to work on what would be come their second album.
The new album, Why I Brought You Here, was recorded with more advanced equipment and a more voracious attitude. The twelve songs showcase diverse musical arsenal of the band, from the hardest rock to the gentlest whispers of acoustic guitar.
