The Driver Era Premieres Their First Ever Single 'Preacher Man' - Listen Here!

The Driver Era just dropped their debut single and it’s amazing!

Made up of Ross and Rocky Lynch, the two opened up about why this track wasn’t fit for R5.

“For recent creations, the best outlet wasn’t necessarily R5, it was The Driver Era,” they shared with Billboard.

They added, “Our goal, as any artist should be, is to try and push the boundaries of not only ourselves, but of the music, and also excite people. As an artist, you want to entertain people.”

“The reason we started the Driver Era is just cause our creative endeavors sort of demanded it.”

Ross & Rocky Lynch Explain The Meaning Behind New Band Name, The Driver Era

When Ross and Rocky Lynch announced their new project, The Driver Era, not a lot of people actually got the meaning behind the name.

Now, the two brothers are explaining it to fans in their new interview with Billboard.

“There are a lot of cool side stories to The Driver Era,” Ross says. “There’s a lot of little inspirations here and there from different things we like. Really where the name came from was just a conversation that Rock and I were having about the future and stuff.”

He continues, “We’re always talking about anything future-leaning. Our biggest idols are people like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, and people that are constantly trying to push the envelope.”

“We were just talking about all of the technological advances, and really exciting stuff like Space X. I think somewhere along the way, The Driver Era was mentioned in the conversation, and it just kinda had a ring to it. It felt nice. We decided it should be the band name.”

The Driver Era will release their debut single, “Preacher Man”, on Friday. Check out a new sneak peek below!

You might’ve noticed the change on R5‘s social media accounts, we know we did!

R5 is now The Driver Era, a brand new era with Ross and Rocky Lynch writing, performing, and producing most of the tracks.

“We have completely different ideas and goals at this point in our lives,” Ross shares in a statement.

Rocky adds, “We are, of course, evolving and it’s natural to move forward with a new sound and outlook.”

The Driver Era will “capture a certain classic feeling while looking toward tomorrow” and will conjure up “every romantic association with heading out on the open road: limitless possibility, the thrill of escape, a refusal to stay in one place for any real length of time.”

JJJ can tell you that the debut single, “Preacher Man”, is coming REALLY REALLY SOON!

On top of “Preacher Man” and the accompanying music video, other songs fans can look forward to include “Afterglow” and “Flexible”.

Rocky Lynch gave Dylan O’Brien fans quite a little scare today.

Earlier today, the R5 musician and producer, who is a neighbor of Dylan‘s, tweeted that he saw some cop cars outside the Maze Runner star’s home.

While he had no idea what was going on, he did cause quite a scare among Dylan‘s fans, as reported by Clevver — but it turns out, everything is okay.

Dylan responded to the story, assuring fans he’s completely fine.

“No idea what this is about. I’m fine. Sorry guys. Don’t listen to this,” he wrote.

Rocky also apologized for jumping to conclusions, especially on social media. Check his tweet below:

Ross Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and the rest of their band R5 recently visited Belgium, so of course they had to test out as many local sweets as they could.

Ross and Rydel teamed up with her beau Ellington Ratliff for a hilarious video she posted on her YouTube channel.

In it, the trio rocks fun hats and gives ratings to an assortment of Belgium treats.

Our favorite part might be when Ross starts singing and dancing with his food around the 10-minute mark, but there are so many good ones.

Rocky and Riker join in on the fun later on as well.
