Cold Collective started with Tim Landers, some guitars, a drum pad and a laptop. Lander, whose previous acts include Transit and Misser, wanted to return to his roots and the things that made him fall in love with music. After writing non-stop day and night, Tim recruited Paul Debenedictis, one of his favorite drummers growing up in the North Shore Massachusetts music scene, and they went into the studio with Jay Maas (Dropkick Murphys Title Fight, State Champs). They emerged with Cold Collective’s debut album, Bachelorette Party.
Bachelorette Party is fueled by dark times in Landers’ life where he says, “I spent a lot of time trying to understand human instinct, and myself.” Through the process of writing the album, Tim came out with a clean slate and new ambition. The result is a Cold Collective album comprised of 10 tracks that spit out pure emotion.
Landers has been writing ever since. After recently opening up about his struggles with addiction and mental health, he is back with “Don’t Forget To Leave”- a self produced, honest ballad.
And with that we have teamed up with Cold Collective to bring you a premiere of the the music video for “Don’t Forget to Leave.”
“I’ve met so many amazing people on this journey, and it kills me to know other people struggled as I have. It’s a song about putting the fear of opening up aside. It’s about being comfortable with yourself”
