March 28, 2022 -- Multi-Platinum Atlanta rockers COLLECTIVE SOUL--Ed Roland (vocals/guitar), Dean Roland (rhythm guitar), Jesse Triplett (lead guitar/background vocals), Will Turpin (bass/background vocals), Johnny Rabb (drums/background vocals)--didn’t let the pandemic get in the way of their 26-year tradition of non-stop touring, and now they’re getting ready to head out on the road again. In addition to various headlining shows, the band will join forces with Switchfoot for a massive summer tour that will launch Friday, July 15 in Gary, IN at the Hard Rock Casino.
Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, April 1 at 10am local time. VIP packages for COLLECTIVE SOUL will be available starting Tuesday, March 29 at 10am at www.etix.com.
COLLECTIVE SOUL singer/guitarist Ed Roland can’t wait to get the tour started. “It’s always a thrill to go on tour, but this year is going to be so special because we get to be with not only our friends but a great band, Switchfoot! Southern boys meet Southern California boys, which will be a fun time for all!”
Switchfoot singer/guitarist Jon Foreman couldn’t agree more. “Been fans of COLLECTIVE SOUL and their songs from day one. Can’t believe it took this long for us to finally tour together. Psyched it’s finally happening!”
COLLECTIVE SOUL’s highly anticipated and critically acclaimed tenth studio album, BLOOD, was released June 21, 2019 on Fuzze-Flex Records/ADA as a download or CD on any of these digital retailers. Vinyl copies of the album are currently available on the band’s official website. It garnered impressive debuts on various Billboard’s charts, including #3 on the “Alternative Albums” chart. Elsewhere, it debuted at #4 on the “Independent Albums” chart, #5 on the “Rock Albums” chart, #12 on the “Digital Albums” chart, #15 on the “Top Current Albums” chart, and #19 on the “Internet Albums” chart. Last year, the band announced a visually powerful and socially purposeful collaboration with eco-lifestyle brand One Golden Thread through the launch of an exclusive limited edition lyrical “tree-shirt, created to express the golden thread that connects all our collective souls.” It’s available now on One Golden Thread’s website. A portion of the t-shirt’s proceeds will benefit Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
