COLLECTIVE Soul first came onto the rock scene with its album Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid in 1993.

The album’s song Shine catapulted the group into the public spotlight, the song’s music video became a regular on MTV and soon the band had a platinum debut album.

Since that time, band members have come and gone, but frontman Ed Roland has remained constant.

In 2015 the band released the album See What You Started by Continuing.

The album gives a nod to past songs but also looks toward the future.

“We really appreciate where we started, and now, where we are as a band,” said Roland in a press release.

“I mean, we won the lottery, so let’s keep going, and going strong. We’ve got our second wind.”
