A band’s main influences contribute greatly to their original music. New Addiction lists Led Zeppelin, Incubus, and Guns ‘N Roses as their primary influences. Combining top of the line tube amps and a Gretsch drum kit, these influences can be represented well, with a new age classic rock feel.
In August of 2008, two of Indianapolis’ premier young rock acts fused, creating a literal New Addiction throughout the city. Combining fresh energy, unique musicianship, and the old school roots of rock and roll, their live show has become one of the most requested un-signed acts in the mid-west.
