MA’s Cold Collective, the new project from Tim Landers (ex. Transit, Misser, Off and On) and members of Defeater and November 5, 1955 will release their debut full-length, “Bachelorette Party,” on May 13th via Rise Records. Preorders are up on MerchNow and iTunes along with a new track which you can stream below.
Tim Landers says, “Cold Collective is the band I’ve wanted to start since I first picked up a guitar, thirteen years ago. I’d spent the greater part of my life writing songs for others to sing, holding back in some ways. BACHELORETTE PARTY is a record I wrote amidst the darkest year of my life. The songs come from loss. Writing has always been the rock I turn to for any sort of coping- this record was something I needed to make. I locked myself in my studio at home for weeks, writing to demoing day and night. My longtime friend, producer Jay Maas, and I tracked all of the songs in a weekend, with Paul on drums. I recorded all of the instruments with Jay, and spent the following weeks tracking the vocals alone at home. We rejoined forces a couple weeks later to mix the album. Gus and Darren joined later, and we brought the songs to a live fruition. That is why I chose to call it a “collective”- eager to bring musicians I respected to play these songs with me.
“Away From You” is a special track in particular, as it is the only song I began writing before the birth of Cold Collective. It was a very different song, years ago- but it was an important piece for me to finish and include. I value songs that begin in a certain subject matter, but can speak so much more when revisited at a contrasting point in time.”

Cause a gun’s only as good or bad as the hand that holds it. I’m holding my breath and I’m crossing my fingers. Clenching my fist and I’m crossing my fingers.
