Formed in 1992
Collide was formed in 1992, in Los Angeles, California, United States by Statik and kaRIN. Their industrial rock incorporates elements of trip hop, synthpop and music from the Middle East. Collide’s debut album, “Beneath the Skin”, was released in 1996, followed by a remix album, “Distort”, in 1998.
Dissatisfied with the music industry, Collide started their own record label, Noiseplus Music, and in 2000, they released their second studio album, “Chasing the Ghost” followed by their third studio album, “Some Kind of Strange”. The rest is history!
A band worth checking out!
