Since forming in 2011, the Brighton four-piece have been filling dance-floors across their home town with a refreshingly unique, high-octane fusion of metal, punk, dubstep and drum & bass. Support slots with the legendary Senser, Hed PE, The Algorithm, Hacktivist Spindle Sect and a slot at the Breakout Festival, requested by Skindred themselves, has firmly established COLLISIONS as a must see band.
They are an impaction of rapid pulse-raising noise, crafted and layered to achieve something truly fresh. The crossing of distorted guitars, dance rhythms and synthetic sounds has led many to liken COLLISIONS to a hybrid of Skindred and Pendulum. The precisely crafted instrumentation is complemented by the charismatic tones of front-man Olly Simmons, whose infectious hooks burn themselves into the subconscious of all who listen.Expect a full on, no holds barred show with ambient synthesiser breakdowns, machine gun vocals and heavy grooves that lead into melody-driven choruses that will burn themselves onto the back of you brain.
EP ‘Believe In This’ May 7th, the band’s debut video to ‘Believe In This’ was recorded at Black Hangar Studios with Metal Wasp Media (Protest The Hero, Acoda) and Digby Milner (Harry Potter, Star Wars)

“Collisions’ crushing, trademark cocktail of breakneck-paced Metal, Punk and Drum ‘n’ Bass instantly ingnited their native Brighton………Collisions cement their reputation with a must-see live show, frequently talked about in the same breath as Slipknot, Pendulum and Skindred”
Big Cheese“Collisions are fucking AWESOME!”

“Listening to Collisions makes me want to bang my head and dance at the same time. And I can’t dance for shit. Electro-metal soundclash Insanity” Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer.
