Collateral follow up their 2018 debut 4-track EP “4 Shots!” and their single ‘Midnight Queen‘ with their explosive new single ‘Lullaby’ taken from their highly anticipated eponymous debut album released in September.
The new single is mixed by Grammy Award nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me the Horizon, Funeral for A Friend, Stone Broken).
Collateral won a massive competition out of 20,000 bands to play the main stage at the Electric Ballroom at this year’s Camden Rocks Festival on Saturday June 1st. They are also in the finals at the Ramblin’ Man Rumble to play the Rising Stage at this summer’s Ramblin’ Man Fair.
Ripped jeans, cowboy boots, long hair and plenty of eye-liner, Collateral are a new generation stadium-driven rock and roll. When they first started out, they were known as the Angelo Tristan Band, with frontman Angelo Tristan and bass player Jack Bentley-Smith, forming the nucleus of the band. Since then, almost five years ago, they have worked tirelessly to grow their music, fanbase and their profile.
The band are a firm favorite of Rockposer Dot Com! having first opened 2018’s Fibrofest the Angelo Tristan Band, then returning to Leo’s Red Lion as Collateral as part of the Rockposer Dot Com! sponsored ‘Rock The Red Lion‘.
Collateral put the fun and excitement back into rock and roll by giving their fans a show that’s packed with high-octane entertainment. Not only is their live sound impeccable, but their signature stagecraft is reminiscent of what great rock and roll concerts used to be like. Every Collateral concert is a celebratory occasion leaving audiences coming back for more.
The music, the image, the lighting. It’s the whole package. Nothing is taken for granted.
‘Lullaby‘ is a dynamic, heavy-duty rock stomper with pounding drums courtesy of Ben Atkinson, killer lead vocals by frontman Angelo Tristan, an unforgettable guitar solo from guitarist Todd Winger, a nasty bass groove from bassist ben Jack Bentley-Smith, topped with an infectious singalong chorus that’ll will leave you wanting more.
“Lullaby is a song that has the basic feeling of the world we all live in today – a world where you are told to dream big but, yet ‘Be realistic’,” says Collateral’s front man Angelo Tristan. “I’d be lying if I’d said we’re not a pissed off rock and roll band like a lot of other bands out there. Lullaby has the simplicity, the power and emotion that you should expect to hear on Collateral’s debut album.”
Since Collateral burst on to the music scene, they have attracted attention from venues, festivals, press, and of course, rock music lovers everywhere. Collateral fit neatly into the current NWOCR with their rock anthems reminiscent of early Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Little Angels, Thunder, Skid Row and Tyketto. Last year, when Collateral played Hard Rock Hell’s private VIP party, the reaction was off the hook.
Collateral started making waves earlier this year when their ‘Midnight Queen‘ single got picked up by Planet Rock radio in the UK. A sold-out London concert at the Blackheart with rave reviews, confirmed their position as worthy contenders for the UK’s crown jewels of rock and roll.
The band have been singled out as “Ones to Watch” on http://www.planetrock.com.
Collateral is getting ready for the next run of live shows including a co-headline show with Daxx & Roxane at London’s Borderline on Saturday May 18th, an appearance at Camden Rocks Festival on Saturday June 1st, followed by a support tour with Bucket & Co. (Dave “Bucket” Colwel’s band (ex-Bad Company, Humble Pie), followed by a nationwide co-headline tour with Piston in September in support of their debut album.
