It’s been a long time coming now, so I’m very excited to announce the release of our brand new EP – Collide – on July 1st. Having spent so long writing material for the new album, it’s great to be able to start revealing this for you all. Collide is the first taste of new music showing what’s to follow later this year when the album finally hits stores.
Collide is comprised of 3 tracks – Unstoppable, The Sun and Collide. Unstoppable provides the first insight into our forthcoming debut album, whilst The Sun has been re-vamped and re-recorded, giving the track a more polished and full sound. Finally, Collide is a B-Side that didn’t quite make the album, but is still a track that I love. I feel it shows a very different side of The Polysonic, with a much more minimalistic and soft feel to the track.
In case you missed this announcement last month, we’ll be spending the rest of this year hitting stages and playing shows across the UK. We’ve spent the majority of the year so far in rehearsal studios putting together the live show so we can get out there and play this music for you. I’m lucky to be playing beside some amazing musicians who are helping to make this dream a reality. Our confirmed dates so far are:
June 28th – Purple Turtle, Reading
June 29th – The Islington, London
July 13th – Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading
Keep checking the tour page for more dates as we announce them.
Collide will be available from all major digital retailers on July 1st, and will also be available on CD at our upcoming gigs. We’ll release more details very soon.
We hope you’re ready to make some noise about this EP. We need your help – share it with friends, send it to your favourite blogs, or even contact a local promoter and encourage them to book us so that we can come and play for you. This would all be a great help to us in spreading the word about this release ahead of our album.
Once again, we’d like to thank you for your continued support as we head into this new chapter of The Polysonic. There are plenty of new tracks coming later in the year and lots of debauchery to be caused at shows, so we hope you’ll stick by us.
In the mean time, here’s another track from the new album for you to get your teeth stuck in to – Say Something
