In a move set to unite theorists and mystics of the world, Children Collide return with their highly anticipated second album, Theory Of Everything (out 27 August 2010).
The Theory of Everything, a piece of theoretical physics that attempts to explain all the fundamental interactions of nature and the universe, has formed the title for the album. Whilst the divine powers of the tarot's major arcana inspired the Melbourne bands latest album.
Not that such an apparently schizoid blend is anything new for the band. "We’ve had a little of that going on since we began writing songs," explains vocalist and guitarist Johnny Mackay. "Alchemy and chemistry, reason and religion, love and logic. Art and music are so often about tying opposing forces together into a contentious dualism. Contradiction is a big part of what we do."
The first single ‘Jellylegs’ is off to a flying start with The Age declaring “Jellylegs (★★★★), their new single, suggests their coming second album...will rule the world. Bring it on”. The infectious track was also the most requested on triple j’s daily ‘Super Request’ show for an entire week.
As Theory of Everything begins to take the shape of anticipation in the ears and imaginations of eager listeners, Children Collide will embark on the Theory of Everything national album tour to reveal some of the records more spontaneous intricacies.
Few acts are fully in possession of that genuine ability to enrapture audiences time and time again. Children Collide, ferocious in their conquest to flail about stages, have justified the strong reputation that precedes them as one truly unique and entertaining live entity. The year 2010 has already yielded considerable success from the stage in the form of extensive international touring and a triumphant (if short) headline run throughout June.
Children Collide’s album tour will now lift the figurative lid on a whole world of mystic delights (of the sonic variety of course). In support duties on this thrilling bill will be Ballarat’s favourite bratty sons Howl. Theory of Everything’s lengthy string of dates coincides with the liberation of the record, nary stopping for breath but giving audiences a chance to ingest the songs before taking the live plunge.
