Recently reunited indie-rock band Children Collide have dropped their new single Funeral For A Ghost. The track will feature on their soon to be released fourth studio album.

Of the track, frontman/guitarist Johnny Mackay shared: “I wrote it on an old Roland loop pedal when I was living in a dungeon in North Melbourne an eon ago”. He continued, “I had to open a trap door to get down to my room and you could see where a tunnel had been bricked up on my bedroom wall. I was listening to a lot of Sonic Youth at the time, constantly rotating between Murray St and Confusion is Sex. Listening to it now, the lyrics sound like I wrote them last week about COVID conspiracy nuts. Time is a flat circle”.

The release is accompanied by an official music video, Directed by Lord Fascinator and filmed by Nico White and Dave Meagher. The clip expertly captures the energy the band bring to their live shows, having sold-out headline shows across the country and performing at festivals such as SXSW, The Great Escape, Splendour in the Grass, Big Day Out and many more. The band are set to perform in Wollongong this January at Yours and Owls Festival.

With their first record in eight years due out soon, the the trio will host an exclusive album preview on Facebook Premiere and Instagram TV on Sunday 6 September @ 3:00pm AEST.
