About the Artist
DIVE is a straightforward band of aggressive and melodic rock that compares to the sounds of Three Days Grace, Hoobastank and Fuel. DIVE formed back in 2004, taking time to create and focus their sound while playing local club and bar gigs around their hometowns. In 2007, The Truth About Us was self-released and eventually gained widespread attention for this dynamic band. In 2009, DIVE signed with Phase One/MadRock records. The band spent the holidays at the legendary 4th Street Recording Studios in Santa Monica, CA to record their debut album "Picture Perfect" with producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, No Doubt, Live, Jacks Mannequin). The album was released through Sony RED on 5/11/2010 and is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and in stores at FYE, Hot Topic and Barnes and Nobles.
"Picture Perfect" hits you fast and hard with a fury of tight rhythms and distorted guitars from beginning to end. Having a great record filled with addicting hooks and head banging beats is just not enough for these young rockers. Its all about having the live show to back it up says Jonny Dive (lead vocals). DIVE consistently delivers a tight and energetic live show, going all out and leaving the audience screaming for more. Jonny, commands the stage as well as the crowd with his uncanny vocal performance while connecting with the audience through stories of love and loss. Evan Canova and Jeff Moczydlowski dual between rhythm and lead while delivering both color and drive simultaneously backed by a rhythm section with more than enough backbone between bass player, Martin Delahaye , and drummer Will Ferguson.
Later in 2010, Dive headed to the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ to be one of the first bands to ever play the new stadium along side Bon Jovi and Train. They have also played with acts such as: Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf, Fuel, Halestorm, Sum 41, RED, Eve 6, The Ataris, My Darkest Days, Trapt, Creed, Saving Abel, Ryan Cabrera, 12 Stones, Taproot, Adema, Hawthorne Heights and many more!
Along with Phase One/MadRock, DIVE has now teamed up with CEG talent agency. The band is currently working on an acoustic EP set to be released late 2011 as well as several new tour dates coming in late 2011/early 2012.
