Great Collapse announce new album ‘Holy War’

Super groups, right?

Great Collapse – led by Strike Anywhere‘s Thomas Barnett and featuring former Rise Against guitarist Chris Chasse, Set Your Goals bass player Joe Saucedo, former Death By Stereo drummer Todd Henning and At Risk‘s guitarist Tom Arnott – have revealed details of their debut album.

Following on from 2014’s ‘Elemental’ EP, the band will be releasing the full-length ‘Holy War’ on October 2nd 2015 through End Hit Records. You can stream the first track/opening number ‘New Abolition’ below.

“This song is the first chapter of this record, and pushes fast past the myths we are poisoned with about the inevitability of violence, the schadenfreude and realpolitik of hollow leaders, whispers and documents giving away love and life on this blue planet,” explains Barnett. “This is our contribution, our small peace punk bullet aimed between our heartbeats, into the belly of this monster that the stories of powerless history builds on the backs of our lives. these humans, animals, and breathing landscapes are not our enemy. we build this road by walking on it. no matter how many steps or lifetimes it may take. ‘New Abolition’ is only the beginning.”.

And he’s right. There are ten more songs to come, according to the tracklisting.

New Abolition
Human Target
Break In Case of Emergency
The World Between
Dawn Stations
Beyond Authority
Specific Gravity
The Ones Who Last
Generation In Crosshairs
