Arizona upstarts ARCHETYPES COLLIDE — Kyle Pastor (vocals), Brandon Baker and Jared Knister (guitars), Ky Sanders (bass), and Tyler Flamm (drums) — have quickly established themselves as a band unafraid to blur the lines between safety and innovation in heavy music. Soaring vocals, melodies, and heavy grooves swirl with passion and precision. The band will drop its self-titled debut on March 31 via Fearless Records. Pre-order it here

“Sometimes I let the wrong people work their way into my life,” explains Pastor. “They slowly steal my joy, drain my passions, and distort my dreams. This song is for anyone struggling to cut out the people that are bringing them down.”

ARCHETYPES COLLIDE demand repeated listening, mixing everything from Linkin Park and Bring Me The Horizon to The Chainsmokers, and Stranger Things-style retro synths, into a unique musical identity. A collection of singles and EPs drew a devoted fanbase. The band appeared on major festivals like Aftershock, Louder Than Life, and Welcome To Rockville, toured with genre giants The Amity Affliction, and crafted an ambitious self-titled debut album for Fearless Records. Archetypes Collide spent several weeks in the first part of 2022 making their inaugural full-length, with a super team surrounding them to execute their vision.

As singer Kyle Pastor explains simply:

Why not take every shot, in every direction, under the umbrella of hard rock and metal?
