Acclaimed by Alternative Press as “reinventing indie rock”, late night drive home are bringing their roots of growing up in a small town outside of El Paso around the world.


Starting in 2019, singer Andre Portillo and guitarist Juan “Ockz” Vargas learned how to play their instruments while simultaneously learning how to produce music. When 2020 hit, the two best friends spent their time together uploading their work on SoundCloud. As they started to gain momentum online, Ockz recruited his cousin Freddy Baca on the bass (who learned how to play the bass in order to join the band) and their long time friend, Brian Dolan on drums. On one fateful day in 2021, they released their hit song “Stress Relief” on all streaming platforms, their lives were forever changed.


“Stress Relief” accumulated over 100M streams across all platforms, which resulted in late night drive home signing a record deal with Epitaph Records. Now, gearing up to release their debut EP “i’ll remember you for the same feeling you gave me as i slept” off the tails of a successful sold out headline tour, late night drive home are stopping at nothing, while also remembering their roots and growing up in rural america; just being able to create art for them is enough.
