Archetypes Collide Share "Fade Away" Music Video an New Tour Announcement with We Came as Romans

Updated: Mar 6

A new Arizona band not afraid to blur the line between safety and innovation in heavy music is ARCHETYPES COLLIDE, with Kyle Pastor on vocals, Brandon Baker and Jared Knister on guitar, Ky Sanders on bass, and Tyler Flamm on drums. Soaring vocals, melodies, and heavy grooves swirl with passion and precision. The band dropped its self-titled debut on March 31 via Fearless Records. Get it here.

"Life can leave you feeling like the only way to succeed is to continually grind until you drive yourself into the ground... "'Fade Away' is for those that feel like they're burning at both ends just to make it to tomorrow."

"'Fade Away' is all about capturing that day-to-day (more often 'night-to-night,' if Im being honest) vibes of the touring life. Sleepless nights, blurring days, the grind of traveling, and being away from family and loved ones to pursue the dream. It's a crazy balancing act that can slowly start to wear on you if you're not careful to keep your priorities straight."

- Kyle Pastor (vocals)

Watch the performance-driven video for "Fade Away," which offers a glimpse of what to expect when the band hits the road, here.

After touring with Beartooth and Trivium earlier this year, the band will return to the road this fall with We Came as Romans, Emmure, and Bodysnatcher. All dates are below.


ARCHETYPES COLLIDE demand repeated listening, mixing everything from Linkin Park and Bring Me The Horizon to The Chainsmokers, and Stranger Things-style retro synths, into a unique musical identity. Oshie Bichar, bassist for Beartooth, noticed the singles and EPs and devoted a following to them. Under Bichar's management, Archetypes Collide was taken under their wing. "Your Misery," "Becoming What I Hate," and "Above It All" were among the songs Octane picked to feature on SiriusXM. The band performed at major festivals like Aftershock, Louder Than Life, and Welcome To Rockville, toured with genre giants The Amity Affliction, and crafted an ambitious self-titled debut album for Fearless Records. A super team surrounded Archetypes Collide while they made their inaugural full-length in the first quarter of 2022. A collaboration between Bichar and Nick Ingram (Dayseeker, Convictions, Hawthorne Heights) took place at Capital House Studio in Ohio.Additional production was provided by Jon Eberhard (Skillet, I Prevail, Until I Wake); Landon Tewers of The Plot In You also contributed.This album captures the vibrant spirit of the 2010s Warped Tour with a postmodern edge, mixed by Jeff Dunne (Ice Nine Kills, Wage War, Make Them Suffer). Diversity and authenticity abound in this mission statement. ARCHETYPES COLLIDE aren't bound by preconceived notions or limitations. As single Kyle Pastor explains simply: "Why not take every shot, in every direction, under the umbrella of hard rock and metal?"
