Ripped jeans, cowboy boots, long hair and guyliner, Collateral are new generation stadium-driven, rock and roll. They put the fun and excitement back into rock and roll, giving their fans a show packed with high-octane entertainment. Not only is their live sound impeccable, but their signature stagecraft is reminiscent of what great rock and roll concerts used to be like. Every Collateral concert is a celebratory occasion leaving audiences coming back for more. The music, the image, the lighting. It’s the whole package. Nothing is taken for granted.
When first starting out, the band were known as the “Angelo Tristan Band,” with frontman Angelo Tristan and bass player Jack Bentley-Smith, forming the nucleus of the band. In 2018, with a new line up and their debut single on the horizon, Midnight Queen, they changed the name to ‘Collateral’ and the story begun.
2018 and 2019 came and went in a whirlwind of performances as rock lovers worldwide tuned in to this new band. Collateral had started to make waves early in the year when their single “Midnight Queen” received serious airplay on Planet Rock radio. A sold-out London concert at the Blackheart with rave reviews, confirmed their position as worthy contenders for the UK’s rock and roll crown jewels. The band were singled out as “Ones to Watch” on www.planetrock.com and have since been championed by numerous rock magazines including Fireworks, Powerplay, Black Velvet, Planet Rock and HRH.
For Collateral the pinnacle of 2019 must surely have been August, Collateral won a massive competition that enabled them to perform on the Runaway to Paradise with Jon Bon Jovi! Mediterranean Cruise. The same year they won Ramblin’ Man Rumble competition which saw them draw the biggest crowd at The Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2019.
With a series of successful singles, an ep and some jaw dropping support tours under their belt, the four members of Collateral walked into 2020 ready for the release of their debut album. An album that did not disappoint press, radio, critics, but most of all their fans. Since then the band have grown from the original 4 piece to a 6 piece with the addition of keyboards and 2nd guitar
“It’s a window onto the world of 80’s classic rock when Sunset Strip was the place to be and rock ruled the world,“ wrote Rock N Load about Collateral’s debut EP. ”Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Whitesnake were king, and big hair was the name of the game. With polished song writing and catchy melodies, you can’t ignore Collateral.”
“It’s something to be part of a crowd bearing witness to a future phenomenon – Collateral simply dominate the attention,” said Sonic Abuse about Collateral’s Blackheart concert.
MNPR Magazine cited the following comment in their review of the Blackheart show – “Introducing the band was none other than the Planet Rock Breakfast Show host Paul Anthony, and what an introduction he gave. He waxed lyrical about how this band are “The next big thing” and “ones-to-watch” and how everyone there is witnessing “something very special indeed.”
“An explosive EP heralding the arrival of possibly the next big thing in classic rock,” wrote the Daily Express about the band’s debut EP. “Collateral come rocking out of the green corner to take centre stage with their punchy rock firmly established in the New Wave of Classic Rock movement.”
Collateral will tour with Skid Row throughout Europe in 2021, Swedish rockers H.E.A.T in the UK, and have been invited back to perform on the main stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair in July 2021.
