Following their long-awaited reunion, and the release of new singles Aurora and Funeral for a Ghost, Children Collide will hit the stage for the first time in over a year for a string of headline shows in Melbourne, Geelong and Ballarat this February. The tour will coincide with the release of Trampoline, the third single from their fourth studio album, Time Itself, due out in 2021 on Spinning Top Records.
There was a time; A time of packed pubs, heaving festival mosh pits, loud guitars, churning bass, walloping drums. The kind of riffs that can set entire fields into a seismic bounce, with choruses designed to be sung en masse with index fingers raised in perfect syncopation. This was a time where a band like Children Collide thrived – and with their imminent return and a new album on the horizon, there’s hope that there can be a time like that again.
Children Collide will share the third taste from their new album with single Trampoline and the accompanying video on 9 February. Children Collide frontman, Johnny Mackay says of the track, ‘we managed to do that thing we love with the song straddling two eras but still making sense. A lot of this record we were thinking about Sabbath, The Stooges, and Sonic Youth, but on Trampoline, it was late Beatles meeting early Smashing Pumpkins.’
