COLLAPSE THE SKY
FIERCE UK UNIT ANNOUNCE NEW VIDEO FROM CURRENT ALBUM!
Commanding Brit metallers COLLAPSE THE SKY have just revealed their ear-splitting new album, White Flags. The engulfing riff merchants have also set loose a brand-new video for the track, Dream Catcher. Watch the video, here - https://youtu.be/8GcCDPUuIs0 .
Ever since their inception in 2016, Norwich based heavyweights COLLAPSE THE SKY have gone from strength to strength. Channeling a collection of stout influences panning from Slipknot and The Ghost Inside, through to Lamb of God and Parkway Drive, and featuring Lee Margaillan (vocals), Flynn Green (lead guitar), Luke Fowler (drums), David Lawrence (guitar), and Karl Morse (bass), COLLAPSE THE SKY have the intensity, guile, and energy to be one of the key players in today’s scene.
Support is certainly increasing for the quintet, which has been aided by the release of 2016’s debut album, Seven Eyes, and the group’s 2018 sophomore album, Consumed. Appearing at Metal 2 the Masses and playing shows with King 810 and Heart of a Coward have increased COLLAPSE THE SKY’s growing stock, and so too has the launch of their recent video and album namesake, White Flags - https://youtu.be/SAfC2Uw2m1g .
COLLAPSE THE SKY’s current album, White Flags, has all the markings of a game-changer for the band. Delving into multiple subgenres of metal and displaying a breadth of riffs and phrasing, the record highlights the band’s obvious diversity and unquestionable ability. Flynn Green remarks about the background of the album: “White Flags is a sonic representation of conflict and the different forms of strife that we experience throughout our life cycle. This could include any interpretation of the word from military conflict to internal conflicts with mental health”. With a raft of shows and festivals in the works for the latter half of 2022, COLLAPSE THE SKY are destined to soar.
‘White Flags’ album track listing: 1) Foundations, 2) Breathe, 3) Worship, 4) White Flags, 5) Survive, 6) Dream Catcher, 7) Get What You Give, 8) After Effect, 9) Blessing, 10) Who I am, 11) Let It In.

Formed in 1968 by Jon Anderson and the late, and much-missed, Chris Squire, YES have been one of the most innovative, influential and best-loved bands in rock music history. Their 1970s albums The Yes Album, Fragile, Close to the Edge, Yessongs (a triple live album set), Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer and Going For The One were ground-breaking in musical style and content. Their music also became synonymous with artist Roger Dean whose distinctive YES logo design and artwork adorned the lavish gatefold presentation sleeves of many YES albums.
With sales of over 50 million records, the Grammy-award winning YES were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017 where they performed Roundabout from the album Fragile and the FM radio-friendly Owner Of A Lonely Heart from the 1985 album 90125. In 2021 YES released their 22nd Studio album, The Quest, produced by Steve Howe, which went to No.1 in the UK rock chart and entered the Official UK Album Chart at No. 20.
