COLLECTIVE SOUL’s highly anticipated and critically acclaimed eleventh studio album, “Vibrating” has garnered impressive debuts on various Billboard’s charts thanks to their devoted fans, including #4 on the “Current Alternative Albums” chart and #6 on the “Current Rock Albums” chart.

Released August 12 on their label, Fuzze-Flex Records via AMPED Distribution, “Vibrating” is available now on CD, vinyl and digital formats everywhere music is sold. A limited number of autographed CDs are still available on TalkShop.Live.

On that first day of release, the album quickly became the #1 Alternative album and #9 album on Apple Music/iTunes, and it was also the #12 best-selling Rock CD on Amazon. Here are the current charts positions:

  • #4 Current Alternative Albums
  • #6 Current Rock Albums
  • #6 Independent Albums
  • #10 Current Digital Albums
  • #10 Digital Albums
  • #14 Internet Albums
  • #22 Canadian Album Sales
  • #23 Top Current Albums Sales
  • #28 Top Album Sales
  • #28 Top Albums w/ TEA

“Vibrating” sends the band’s artistic spirit into the next stratosphere. All ten songs positively pulsate with the boundless energy that has been COLLECTIVE SOUL’s aural calling card for over three decades. From the propulsively gnarly kiss-off of “Cut the Cord” to the reflective midtempo jangle of “Take” to the heart-wrenching reality check of “Rule No. 1” — replete with a soaring string section, no less! — to the choir-backed emotional crossroads of “Where Do I Go,” “Vibrating” contains 42 minutes of irrefutable sonic evidence of a band wholly uninterested in sitting still.

“I think we’re on a roll,” observes Ed Roland, the band’s front-man and chief songwriter. “We’re not afraid to stretch the boundaries, but we do know how to stay in our lane when we need to. Sometimes, though, we just have to go faster.” As he continues, “Our fans have been waiting for “Vibrating” for almost three years now, and I can’t wait for them to hear it. They’re excited because both “See What You Started” and “Blood” set such a high standard for where we’re going as a band, and it’s only going to continue getting better with “Vibrating”. I really do believe that.”

“Vibrating” is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed tenth studio album, “Blood”, which was released June 21, 2019 on Fuzze-Flex Records/ADA. It garnered impressive debuts on various Billboard’s charts, including #3 on the “Alternative Albums” chart. Elsewhere, it debuted at #4 on the “Independent Albums” chart, #5 on the “Rock Albums” chart, #12 on the “Digital Albums” chart, #15 on the “Top Current Albums” chart, and #19 on the “Internet Albums” chart.

Seeing eye to eye, and ear to ear, is part of the secret sauce of why COLLECTIVE SOUL continues to both record and play together at an uncompromising level of high quality. “That’s the end goal for everybody in this band,” agrees Roland. “Just because I write the songs doesn’t mean I’m the only one who wants it all to come out right. We all want it to be right, and that’s because this is a band that acts like a band.”

Meanwhile in touring news, in addition to various headlining shows, the band will join forces with Switchfoot – for the very first time – for a massive summer tour that will launch Friday, July 15 in Gary, IN at the Hard Rock Casino. Ed Roland can’t wait to get the tour started. “It’s always a thrill to go on tour, but this year is going to be so special because we get to be with not only our friends but a great band, Switchfoot! Southern boys meet Southern California boys, which will be a fun time for all!”
