“The Poet and the Thief”, the new video from rockers THE FUZZ DRIVERS, can be seen below. The video is the second single from the band’s self-titled debut album, released worldwide on January 31st and available for FREE download at www.thefuzzdrivers.com
Currently riding a wave of rave reviews for their debut album, THE FUZZ DRIVERS recently decided to take a big step and make their album available for free in order to spread the music all over the world and the decision proved to be a good one.
“We are having a huge amount of people downloading our album daily and offering us a lot of good feedback and support and ultimately that is all that matters in this day and age for an upcoming band. We are a LIVE band, so that is exactly what we want to do: Have the opportunity to play live as much as we can, everywhere!”
THE FUZZ DRIVERS debut album is filled with a Hard Rock/Classic Rock vibe but still retains a modern touch mixed with a highly melodic component, packing a loud and energetic punch!
The video was directed and edited by renowned artist João Vasco.
The CD was recorded, produced and mixed by the band at THE FUZZ DRIVERS Studio during the past summer and was mastered at Estudio|SantaRosa in Sintra, Portugal.
The album cover was handmade by the talented artist Alex Konahin.

Rock and Roll will never die! That is what I think when I hear a band like The Fuzz Drivers for the first time. Classic rock has inspired bands all over the globe, and The Fuzz Drivers are dishing out the best 70’s style rock and roll I have ever heard from Portugal.
The first time I listened to “Discordia Song”, I knew I was going to enjoy The Fuzz Drivers’ album, but what I didn’t realize is how much. After my first couple of listens, I detected a lot of Zeppelin and Beatles influences in the music, and that is a good thing. Sérgio dishes out some mad riffs on “Discordia Song”, and Marcelo Viero pushes his vocals to the limit.
“Shine” is possibly my favorite track on the album. This powerful number is driven by the Bonham-esque drums of Duarte Carvalho. This heavy tune gets better with every listen.
When I listen to the song “Carved Time”, songs like “Dear Prudence” and “Over the Hills And Far Away” come to mind. Sergio’s guitar tone falls somewhere between those two songs, and I love it! If there was ever a more radio friendly song, “Carved Time” is the one that is worthy of a lot of radio airplay.
“Mama Told You” has an infectious little riff that makes this one incredibly catchy tune. I like this one a lot.
For a self produced and recorded album, the sound quality on this album is top notch. The band did an outstanding job putting this together. Even though the album is a little on the short side, it is a solid debut for The Fuzz Drivers. With music this good, I think the band has the potential to get some global recognition.

Their sound is based on the Classic Rock of the 1960s and ‘70s, Blues/Rock and Southern Rock and features strong melodies and meaningful lyrics. It is pure, heart-pounding Rock ‘n’ Roll!
“I was blow away by the level of writing and execution on this one. Portugal is delivering top music these days. Energetic songs, great dynamic and breathing room on the songs. Great choruses and harmonies without following any trends.” – iTunes reviewer.
