Children Collide announce tour

Children Collide have finally finished album number three, and according to Johnny Mackay it is, “…post-punk, sort of Krauty-psych and a bit dancey.” While we are not entirely sure what that means, if new tune Sword To A Gunfight is anything to go by then the band is certainly onto a very good thing.

With its driving rhythm and spacey guitar interludes Gunfight could be a roughed up Primal Scream out-take, and is hopefully a sign of what’s to come from their forthcoming record, Monument.

Before they drop the LP on April 12th you’ll get a chance to preview Children Collide’s new tunes in the flesh when they hit the road for a huge tour in March.

Looks like this will be Ryan's last tour:

[URL="http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=103abf56c8e318c466795c0ac&id=0fb42fb468"]As revealed over the past few weeks, Children Collide have recently completed their third album ‘Monument’. Recorded at Melbourne’s Red Door Sounds with Paul ‘Woody’ Annison, the album will be released on April 20.

All three members of Children Collide poured their heart, souls and creative spirit into the creation of Monument, and it is a work that they are immensely proud of. They proudly proclaim it is their truest and best work to date. In the face of all of this, with a heavy heart the band announce the departure of Ryan Caesar in a mutual decision made this week. Caesar has played with the band since early 2007, the fourth drummer since Children Collide’s inception in 2004.

This announcement could be a vessel to spout various lines about “creative differences”, however that wouldn’t really be in the spirit of Children Collide. So, to be honest and forthright: the relationship between band members Ryan and Johnny has over the years disintegrated. Their fine body of work and energetic live synergy is a testament to their musical and creative connection, but it’s come to a point where touring as a unit is no longer pleasant. And that is that. This statement will, however be used to assure Children Collide’s devoted listeners that Ryan’s departure does not spell the end of the band. Johnny and Heath will continue to tour and record, and all Spinal Tap jokes aside, the future of who will take up the sticks as drummer #5 remains unwritten.
