In the beginning
...of Gale Force:
Gale Force met together as a band for the first time in a Los Angeles restaurant called the "Cheesecake Factory" (Pasadena, CA) on March 24, 2019. The very first song that they wrote as a band (even before they were officially a band) was "Crash & Burn" (which turned out to be the first official video as well)- The guys collaborated together recording their parts in their studios, and Michael wrote his vocal parts and recorded them in his studio, then presented the completed track to the rest of the band. Melding different musical styles together, the chemistry between them was obvious. Shortly thereafter, they officially joined together and became a family, and Gale Force was born. The guys worked hard on the album for the next year and a half, and "Subhuman" was officially complete in its entirety on October 14, 2020; a date which also happens to be Michael Drive's late father's birthday. "I wish he could have heard this, he would have been proud" said Michael. Throughout those first 19 months - song by song, the results of their musical chemistry became clear: Gale Force was NOT just another band. They had something real, and something special!
This is a group that without a doubt, embodies the return of real rock.
