Seattle's Calm Collapse is an indie rock supergroup featuring members of Roadside Monument Patrol, Traindodge, and Medicine Bows. The band's new single, "Welfare Tour," is a perfect example of music that is both heavy and melodic. It's not quite metal heavy, but at the very least it's metal adjacent. Typically when a song is described as both heavy and melodic, it's a code that it's a watered down version of hard rock. That's not the case with Calm Collapse. "Welfare Tour" is a pounding, heavy rock song that just happens to also include some melody. This is making me think of bands like Helmet or Pelican.
You can listen to "Welfare Tour" below. Mirrored Nature is due out November 25 on Spartan Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Calm Collapse, check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
