Aussie trio Children Collide have treated fans with a new track off their forthcoming record, Time Itself, and a massive national tour! The new song, Man Of The People, arrives alongside an official visual, directed by Lord Fascinator and filmed by Nico White and Dave Meagher.

Kicking off in Adelaide on November 19, the tour will continue on to Perth, Fremantle, Belgrave, Melbourne, Ballarat, Wollongong, Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle, Brisbane and Maroochydore, before wrapping up on the Gold Coast on December 11.

Speaking of the track, frontman Johnny Mackay shares: “Originally titled Dark Bird this was an instrumental I’d written just after Monument. I pulled it out, dusted it off and wrote lyrics in New York at the height of the Trump presidency. I was having a bit of a rock bottom moment personally and my whole world felt like cocaine, mezcal and pathetic desperation against the backdrop of a Murdochian dystopia where the bastards had won. My reaction is always to stuff my hopelessness into an aural time capsule. I love how heavy Loren and Doug made it and the one take solo gives me anxiety when I listen back.”

The trios highly anticipated fourth studio album is set to drop later this year, after being brought to life by Loren Humphrey at Diamond Mine & Stockholm Syndrome in New York City. Time Itself will feature the previously released singles Aurora, Funeral For A Ghost, Trampoline and Uh Oh, with fans having waited eight years between albums.
