Statik performed with Tool for one song at their Irvine, CA show.
We have contributed a remix for our pals Faith & The Muse for their upcoming release which includes live songs, unreleased material and remixes . The Collide " Gears and Teeth" remix is of their song Silver Circle, kaRIN also contributes guest vocals. The release date is scheduled for Oct.
We've decided to try something and put up a CD on mp3.com that is a collection of songs from all of our CDs--chasing the ghost, distort, beneath the skin, as well as the skin single from offbeat. It's called "Collide-The MP3 Sampler" for lack of a better title. If you don't own a Collide CD yet, it's kind of a way to get your feet wet. As it is right now, there are 13 songs on it. They are...
wings of steel, razor sharp, monochrome, halo, son of a Preacherman (video edit), beneath the skin, pandora's box, deep, falling up, violet's dance, beneath the skin (pulse mix), falling up (egypt mix), violet's dance (abstract dub mix)

If at all possible you should look out for this very cool magazine supporting "subversive & post-alternative music".
kaRIN & Statik return with their own record label, after remaining silent for the past few years. It is a deeply introspective album and a slight change of musical direction. Those of you familiar with their previous efforts, "Beneath the Skin" and "Distort," need not fear because Collide is just as layered and well orchestrated--they just pulled back the noise, allowing for more focus on the vocals and lyrics. The only drawback the album may carry is that none of the tracks scream out to be club hits, with a massive sing-a-long chorus, but since when was that a drawback? If you even remotely like bands with female vocals against distorted electronics or intelligently constructed sound-scapes with honest lyrics this album will not disappoint.
