Thursday 10pm: Feature Artist: Collective Soul

Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.

According to Ed Roland, the group took its name from a phrase in The Fountainhead, citing that “we’re not preaching Ayn Rand, objectivism, egoism, or anything…we just dug the name.”

The band have begun recording songs for their tenth studio album, which is planned to be released in March or April 2018.

 

Wednesday 8pm: Feature LP: Collective Soul (1995)

Collective Soul (sometimes referred to as the Blue Album to differentiate from the second self-titled album) is the second and eponymous studio album by Collective Soul. It became the band’s highest selling album to date, going Triple-Platinum, and spent 76 weeks on the Billboard 200 charts. The singles “December,” “The World I Know” and “Where the River Flows” all reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, while the first two singles also became major pop hits.

Frontman Ed Roland has considered Collective Soul the band’s true debut album; Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid was intended more as a promotional demo and a means of acquiring a publishing contract for Roland who in 1995 noted, “It’s so funny for people to compare the two. It’s like comparing one band to another band. This record is our first record, flat out.”

Wednesday 11pm: Feature LP: Collective Soul – Dosage @CollectiveSoul

Dosage is the fourth studio album by the American alternative rock band Collective Soul. The album was released on Atlantic Records in February 1999 and peaked at #21 on the Billboard albums chart. The album’s title was derived from a catchphrase they used to describe burnout after their previous tour.

The first single from the album, “Heavy”, gave the band another #1 hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and spent a then record-breaking 15 weeks on the top spot. “Heavy” was also featured in the opening of the video game NHL 2001 and in the 2014 Golden Corral ad. The second single released, “Run”, also gained broad mainstream radio-play and was featured on the soundtrack for the 1999 film Varsity Blues.

Over nine years after the album’s release, the single “Tremble for My Beloved” was featured in the 2008 film Twilight and its accompanying soundtrack.

In 2012, the band performed the album in its entirety (save “Dandy Life”) during their Dosage Tour.
