How would you describe yourselves?
Twelve Years Driven is an aggressive rock/metal band that incorporates diverse song writing by layering intricate textures, varying mood elements, and keeping the intensity high.
Who are your main influences musically?
Sevendust, Disturbed, Deftones, Alice In Chains.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
That's not for us to decide. Music is for the people. They ultimately decide the fate of any artist. We've achieved our goals to date....which were to have FUN, record, and play some shows.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Just finished playing the "We Are Metal" festival at SXSW in Austin. It's SXSW!! Need we say more?!?! LOL!!
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Can't say we've had one of those...YET! Hopefully we won't.
If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Great question. We like to believe that our songs are different in the respect that they each offer something unique to that song or subject. It's like trying to decide between your own children! But since we are waiting for our latest five tracks to be mixed and posted, I will pick "Cancer" from the three we have.
Where can we listen to it?
