Dangerkids, the American rock band comprised of Tyler Smyth, Andy Bane, Jake Bryant, Jake Bonham, and Katie Cole, have released their debut full-length album, Collapse, via Rise Records, today, September 17th, 2013.  The album is now available on iTunes, here: smarturl.it/dangerkids-collapse.  You can also check out a full stream of Collapse on Guitar World here: bit.ly/1eHuTmN.

The album, which was self-produced and engineered by frontman Tyler Smyth, was mixed by Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada, Of Mice & Men, Miss May I).  When asked about creating Collapse, Smyth stated, “Producing and recording the album ourselves allowed us the rare opportunity to draw our own lines, both lyrically and sonically.  We were able to create a level of sincerity in our music that we might not have been able to achieve otherwise. Everyone in this band gave a piece of themselves to make this record happen, so we felt we owed it to each other to give nothing less than our best.

The record also recalls some of Smyth’s more difficult times. “Collapse is a somewhat unstable album because it comes from such an unstable time in my life. It’s heartfelt and genuine in a way I can’t explain – It’s like it hurts and heals at the same time.”

The band has previously released three tracks off the album, including “Paper Thin,” which was premiered exclusively on Revolver.com,  “Waking Up,” and “Hostage.”  The band will also be hitting the road this fall on the upcoming “Tracing Back Roots” Tour with We Came As Romans, Silverstein, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, and The Color Morale. The tour kicks off October 2nd, 2013 in Grand Rapids and will wrap November 3rd in Detroit.  Full list of dates are listed below.

Having only formed in April 2012, the Ohio based rockers were named one of Under The Guns Top 5 Artists To Watch in 2013.  Dangerkids have toured under Sleeping With Sirens, Attack Attack and played the 2013 Skate and Surf festival in Jackson, NJ.
