EPIC was produced by multi-platinum, award-winning producer/songwriter Rob Wells (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Adam Lambert, Miranda Cosgrove, Nick Lachey, Backstreet Boys).

Manic Drive will be ON TOUR WITH THE NEWSBOYS this fall. The band has been touring non-stop since the 2009 release of Blue, including North American runs with Stryper, Superchick, Fireflight, Group 1 Crew and the Air-1 Appreciation Tour, which they co-headlined. Following the success of Blue’s Top 10 CHR Hits “Music” and “Walls,” Manic Drive is once again making an impression at radio with the new single “Halo” which is already getting significant airplay. The band’s 2008 release, Reset & Rewind, earned an unprecedented seven Covenant Award nominations from GMA Canada. For more information, visit http://www.ManicDrive.com.
