Today North Carolina indie-pop band The Collection release their new EP, How to Survive an Ending, with Nettwerk. Listen to the band’s boldest EP, which emanates positivity from a place of pure love, HERE.

“I can’t stop thinking about endings – the end of a relationship, the end of my fearful identity, the end of my patience, the end of the world,” states The Collection frontman David Wimbish. “All my songs started to be about these endings and how to handle them with strength and confidence, instead of being bulldozed by them. I think the music reflects this, too. It’s a bolder and more confident version of The Collection and built off of the last year of the ups and downs of road life as a band.” says Wimbish. “We’ve become more confident in who we are over the last 18 months, and now know how to pull each other through an ending.”

Wimbish adds about the recording process, “I wrote most of these songs on an old piano I kept in my kitchen. It was between the teacups and fridge. We recorded them all over North Carolina. Some of the tracks were recorded in the beautiful Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC, which was a ‘bucket list’ experience, for sure.”

The Collection recently announced a handful of headline tour dates, including a performance at Austin’s famed SXSW Music Festival. For a full list of tour dates and to purchase tickets, please visit the band’s website HERE.

About The Collection:

The Collection derives an inimitable musical language from the unbreakable bond between its members. Fronted by David Wimbish, the Saxapahaw, NC-based band places just as much emphasis on interpersonal community and relationships as it does on the music itself.  Because of this, the band have generated tens of millions of streams, logged tens of thousands of miles on the road, earned praise from American SongwriterGlideParade, and more, and landed on NPR Tiny Desk Judges’ Picks – all before signing their first record deal with Nettwerk Music Group in 2022.  Additionally, The Collection have developed a devout fan base thanks in part to their renowned rowdy performances. They have lit up festival stages and crisscrossed the country with The Oh Hellos, RIPE, Tall Heights, and Sammy Rae & The Friends, to name a few.
