Brisbane duo Route 33 are celebrating a #1 debut on the ARIA Australian Albums chart for their new album, Coro Drive.

The album, a reflection of their 90’s rock and country influences, is also #26 on this week’s ARIA all-genres album chart and #2 on the ARIA Country album chart, just behind Luke Combs.

“The initial success of Coro Drive is overwhelming to say the least,” says Route 33’s Trent McArdle.

“To be in ARIA charts both country and all genres with worldwide stars that we look up to and who are the reasons we are always striving to better ourselves and the music we create, is an unexplainable feeling.”

Coro Drive is the Brisbane based duo’s second studio album and was co-produced by Steve James and Andrew Cochrane.

Coro Drive - Route 33

The title is an abbreviation of Coronation Drive, a major thoroughfare for the western suburbs of Brisbane and a street Trent McArdle and Jock Barnes grew up on.

“Trent and I spent a lot of our time on this street growing up, chasing girls and drinking at the bars, speeding tickets when we first got our licenses to now, for me, my office is on this street,” says Barnes.

Sarah McLeod features on the album’s latest single ‘Hands Of Time.’
