Before Releasing Music Video and 7″!

“Throughout, the band showers the listener with compelling melodies. A lot of bands travel this ground; few do it so well.”The Big Takeover

“Backed by a pantheon of rock and indie elite, New Collisions are getting ready to take over the world with their thought-provoking brand of pure pop-new-wave-punk.” Fuse

Following a mega 2010 where critics and fans sang praises of the fresh-faced New Collisions, 2011 is shaping up to be equally as epic. After heading back to the studio with famed producers Sean Slade and Paul Kolderie (Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., The Sounds), New Collisions recorded all new tracks for a 7″, which will be released in April. The 7″ will premier two songs off New Collisions’ next LP, expected to be released this summer, and one of those tracks will see a music video treatment. What should fans expect of these new recordings? Rooted in more adventurous pop and rock, citing XTC and Elvis Costello as inspiration, guitarist Scott Guild says, “The 7″ will be two sardonic stories of failure and conceit.” After the strong story-telling in their debut LP, The Optimist, we have a lot to look forward to.

The band will be taking their new material and electrifying live act on the road, playing huge shows and SXSW! Taking the stages of venues everywhere from Webster Hall with Brooklyn’s Deluka to the WorkPlay Theater with Marcy Playground,  singer Sarah Guild will be every bit of the “punk-rock firecracker” NY Press says she is. Be sure to check em out, as their live act has been lauded by critics everywhere, including New York MagazineBlackbook Magazine, and The Boston Globe.
