Collide - Two Headed Monster
Collide's new album, Two Headed Monster, is set to be released on September 23; it's their first original release (not counting the Vortex remixes or side-project The Secret Meeting) since Some Kind of Strange in 2003. kaRIN and Statik are joined in this release by Danny Carey from Tool and Dean Garcia of Curve, as well as all of the Collide live band, Rogerio Silva, Kai Kurosawa, Scott Landes, and Chaz Pease.
From the bits and pieces I've heard of the album, it's set to be another awesome album: classic Collide. The tracks "Pure Bliss" and "Spaces In Between" sound like they'll surprise the hell out of me when I hear the full version.
Hopefully, we'll also be in for some live performances - the only time I've seen them live was in San Diego at Brick by Brick in 2005, cursing myself that I missed their show at the El Rey in Los Angeles (from which the Like the Hunted DVD and Live at the El Rey CD was produced). Admittedly, it was one of the best live performances I've ever seen by any band.
