DEADWOOD, S.D. (02/20/17) – Collective Soul gained a special place in the hearts of music lovers when they burst onto the scene in 1993 with the rock anthem "Shine." The band, has since been cranking out hits and providing fans with amazingly high energy live shows for over two decades. They will be bringing that energy to Deadwood Mountain Grand on Thursday, June 8th for an 8pm performance.
Hailing from the city of Atlanta, Georgia, Collective Soul shot to international fame with their 1993 release Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, and their mega #1 hit "Shine." The album was a collection of Ed Roland's demos that spread quickly through the college underground circuit and caught fire, going on to achieve Double-Platinum status. After having been invited to the 25th Anniversary Woodstock concert, Collective Soul went into the studio to record their sophomore follow up. The self-titled Collective Soul, released in March of 1995, would be the album that would help define their sound of catchy melodies and guitar driven songs. Containing four outstanding singles (three of which reached #1), "December," "The World I Know," "Where The River Flows," and "Gel," it became Collective Soul's highest selling album to date. The album went Triple-Platinum and spent 76 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 charts.
Their 1997's Platinum Disciplined Breakdown produced two more #1 hits, "Precious Declaration" and "Listen." 1999 brought the album Dosage, a critically acclaimed set of songs that fans count as the band's best. The album took a meticulous six months to record, and provided another strong showing for the band, producing the #1 hit song "Heavy," which would take the top Billboard spot for a (then) record of 15 weeks. Of the band's 5th studio album, Rolling Stone cheered, "Blender simply shreds with unapologetic classic-rock energy." Once again, the band created three more radio heavy smash hits with "Why, Part 2," "Vent" and "Perfect Day," a duet with Sir Elton John.
"Tremble For My Beloved" found Collective Soul on the soundtrack to one of the hottest movies of 2008 – Twilight. "We heard through the grapevine that Stephanie Meyer was a fan of Collective Soul's music and lyrics," says Collective Soul founder and lead singer Ed Roland. “Expanding to tweens opened up a whole new audience for the band”. “We couldn’t be more excited host such a dynamic band as Collective Soul at Deadwood Mountain Grand,” said Resort Manager Susan Kightlinger. “If you haven’t been to one of their shows, you are in for a treat. They are one of the best live bands touring today.”
