In case you couldn't tell, I'm a bit excited about this post. It's not just because this is When Particles Collide that we're talking about here. It's not just because I absolutely adore Chris and Sasha with every fiber of my being. It's not just because this is NEW music from two of the hardest working rockers I have the pleasure to know. It's not just because this NEW music is freaking badass. It's not just because... ah, who the hell am I kidding?! IT'S BECAUSE OF ALL OF THIS AND THEN SOME THAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS POST!!!!!
So this is it. The moment that I've personally been waiting for for what seems like forever, but in reality has only been 12 short months since the release of their debut full-length album, Pop! Pop! Bang! Bang!, we are now treated to one of the greatest rock n roll EPs EVER recorded, EGO!
You've met Bangor, Maine's favorite newlywed rock n rollers Sasha Alcott (guitar/vocals) and Chris Viner (drums) on this very blog multiple times in the past, most recently when the lead single, Ego, was release a few short weeks ago. Now it's time for a full on rock onslaught of your earholes with the release of the 5 song EP. You better be ready for this one, because I literally blew out a speaker in my truck the other day blasting this (it was Perfect Teeth, by the way)!
Coming in at the aforementioned 5 songs, EGO is a 20 minute thrill ride from start to finish. This is THE EP that should put WPC on the map and have everyone in the music industry talking.
Check out their preview video below and judge for yourself:
By now, you should be as convinced as I am as to the greatness that has just unfolded before your very ears!
Now it's time to go out and order your copy. The only place that it's currently available is at Bull Moose Records (yes, they still have actual brick and mortar record stores!) in Portland, Scarborough and Bangor, Maine, and in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Or, if you're lucky enough to live in New England, you'll be able to grab one personally from the band at one of their upcoming shows. Or, you can even order one online from Bull Moose and have it shipped to your house. They ship FAST, believe me!
Order EGO by When Particles Collide from Bull Moose Records
Something else that WPC is doing to promote the release of EGO is running a contest to give away their first tour bus! Check out this Facebook event page for all the details... and make sure you do what they say, I did! I mean, how awesome would it be to sit your ass in THE Caravan that delivered soooo much rock n roll to sooo many people all over the USA?! (Editor's note: I REALLY WANT TO WIN THE TOUR BUS!!!)
