Heffron Drive announced that their debut album, “Happy Mistakes,” will be released on September 9th! The album was a long time coming, as band mates Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt have been making music together since 2008. They put the project on hold so Kendall could join a little group named Big Time Rush, but now Heffron Drive is back in full swing. We love that they had a fan design the album art. Listen to their latest single, “Parallel” below!
We’re looking forward to finally getting studio versions of “One Track Mind” and “The Art of Moving On,” which we’ve only ever heard performed live! Check out the full tracklisting, for the regular and deluxe albums, below.

In case you were out watching fireworks in person and not on TV, you might have missed Heffron Drive’s performance at A Capitol Fourth, from Washington DC. Bandmates Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt performed their new single “Parallel” with The National Symphony Orchestra, in a special orchestral arrangement. Watch their performance below!
We love the full sound of this arrangement of the song. Love it too? You can download the orchestral version of “Parallel” on iTunes now!
Heffron Drive will be playing with AJR at the KRZ Summer Mingle in Scranton, PA this Sunday, July 13th! Get tickets & more info here.
Our favorite summer activity is outdoor concerts, so we were extra thrilled when Heffron Drive announced they would be having a concert at the State Fair! What better way to spend a summer night than riding a ferris wheel, having a major fat party (funnel cake and fried pickles anyone?), and seeing one of your favorite bands? It really doesn’t get much better than that.
Heffron Drive is made up of bandmates and best friends Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt, who formed the group back in 2008 before Kendall joined one of our favorite boy bands, Big Time Rush. Not wanting to breakup the group, Kendall recruited Dustin to play guitar for BTR on tour while they worked on both projects. Heffron Drive has a completely different sound, and we love seeing both boy band Kendall and guitar wielding Kendall.
Their set included more recent material like “Art of Moving On,” the funky “Feels So Good” and the rocking “One Track Mind,” as well as pre-Big Time Rush tracks like “Quiet Please.”
While we miss Big Time Rush, we love seeing how passionate Kendall is on stage. But don’t worry, BTR isn’t over! Kendall said during the show that Big Time Rush is very much still a band, and he misses them, too.
Heffron Drive also performed solid covers of “Wake Me Up” and “Ain’t It Fun,” which Kendall said he wished he had written. But our favorite moment was when Kendall asked if there were any *NSYNC fans in the house (us, obviously), as he intro’d his cover of Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing,” which he said reminded him of a song *NSYNC would have written. We couldn’t agree more! Watch our video below.
Setlist: (not in order)
Art of Moving On
Wake Me Up (Avicii cover)
Better Get To Movin’
One Track Mind
Ain’t It Fun (Paramore cover)
Feels So Good

Check out Heffron Drive’s SXSW performance of “Parallel” below:
Heffron Drive also covered Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply,” and can we just say we’d be totally cool with Heffron Drive taking on more of a 90s alt-rock sound. The song really showcases his beautiful voice, which we miss hearing as part of Big Time Rush!
Heffron Drive announced the title of their first official single and gave us a peak at the art for it!
Here is what Kendall had to say about the song in his Instagram post:
” “PARALLEL” Im very proud to announce this! Make sure you download it on #March25th This song is about timing, chance, and the stars possibly aligning to create true love. Hopefully this is the first in a long line of new music! Thank you all for supporting @dbeltwrites and I! #HeffronDrive #KendallNewSingle #HD #SXSW”
The song will be available for download on March 25th and if you have a badge for South By Southwest (SXSW) catch the exclusive Heffron Drive set at the Creekside Hilton Garden Inn on March 15th at 8PM. Click HERE for all the details.
