Collective Soul is still alive and kicking. One of the most popular rock bands of the 90s, they scored big hits with “Shine”, “Heavy”, “Run”, “The World I Know”, “Precious Declaration”, and “December”. They have recently released their new single, “Hollywood”, which is now available for download on Itunes. They also revamped their website at where you can listen to the new single for free. The website is looking a lot more professional then their previous one and it is a lot easier to navigate.

They are currently on tour with Live and Counting Crows promoting their new single as well as their new album, “Afterwords”, to be released this month on the 28th. At their shows they are giving out music download cards to the first 300 attendees for the opportunity to download “Hollywood” for free. I had a chance to hear Collective Soul in concert with Live this summer and they were outstanding. They played some of their new album and it sounded pretty good. I am a pretty big fan of “Hollywood” and hopefully it will get some play time on the radio this fall. As soon as more information on the rest of the album becomes available I will be sure to let you know.
