Band of the Day: The Collision

Weekends are always a rush, but there’s always time to squeeze in a new bit of music…

Where are you guys from?

South coast UK.

How did you meet?

Our vocalist Lewis was looking for a band and put up lots of posters in local shops and online. Chris and Evan (drums and guitar) replied to the adverts and Tom (bass) was drafted in later on as a friend of Evans.

How long have you been playing as a band?

Three years.

Where does you name come from?

We all have a range of musical backgrounds of different styles; the name represents “The Collision” of our musical tastes.

What are your influences?

A collection of metal, pop, rap and rock. A few examples would be Bring me the Horizon, Don Broco, Beartooth and Normandie.

Describe your music. What makes you unique?

We believe that we cater a sound that everyone can enjoy whether they are into pop, rock or metal. This is due to the layers of synth bouncing on top of massive guitar riffs and crushing drum sounds. We have evolved this sound ourselves but it has been bloomed through our producer Pash Stratton who has helped us so much along the way to bring our ideas to life. He deserves more but shout out to him for all the work he puts in for us.

Do you have any particular lyrical themes?

Our new music is based around human error. This isn’t forced, it just comes naturally as a lyrical theme while writing.

What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?

Our live show is very energetic and we encourage crowd participation. We have probably played over 300 gigs in our time together. We once did 5 in one weekend.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?

To be honest, when we play to a crowd and they are all participating (singing, jumping and moshing) to our music, we find that to be pretty mental and is always a surreal moment.

What kit do you use?

Our drummer use a Mapex 5 piece drum kit with a wood finish. Our guitarist uses a fender Stratocaster with many colours on. Finally our bass player uses a fender American jazz elite in a black finish.

What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?

A new single released on the 6th of December 2019. We are very excited as this is our new sound and we have a big featured artist with it.

What are your plans for 2020?

Release, release, release!!!! Tour, tour, tour!!!!

If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!

We would love to support Normandie because they are one of our favourite bands at the moment. As the opener we would love to play with ‘As December Falls’ again as these guys are great fun musically and lovely people to hang out with. Check them out!
