Approaching their 25th anniversary in 2019, it’s evident the legacy of Collective Soul is as strong as ever. “I think it all comes down to the songs,” Roland believes. “When we started out as a band, we just wanted to write the best songs we could. We always had the mindset of being an album-oriented band. We wanted to create the 10 or 12 best songs we could get on there. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, that’s the hit. That’s the one that’ll be on the radio. Let’s hurry up and finish.’”

What does Roland feel is the best song in the Collective Soul canon? “Well, it’s actually the most necessary song I’ve ever written — and that would be ‘Shine.’ Had it not gotten the attention it did, no other song would have been written. But which one is the best one?” he muses. “It’s the one I wrote yesterday, because that’s the way I treat it. If I think I’ve already written the best song I could write, then I need to stop. I don’t think I’ve even come close. My brother Dean tells me all the time, ‘You just live for that next song!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah.Yeah, I kinda do.’”

One listen to The Stir's high octane guitar laden hooks and raw energy, and it immediately conjures up the classic sounds of rock. This hard rock trio hails from Atlanta, GA., and have created a heavy, syncopated and melodic style that harkens back to bands such as Guns and Roses, ACDC, Rush, and Jane's Addiction but with a fresh modern twist on it. The band met at an early age and bonded musically over their obsession for hard rock. As fate would have it, it would not be long before they would start rocking together in a basement. The guys has been working with Madison Records to produce their debut self-titled EP featuring the single "Nightshift".

The Stir has shared the stage with acts such as Collective Soul, Jeff Carlisi (38 Special), Bad Company, Better Than Ezra, Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow, Don Henley), and more. They will be hitting the road this summer with Fozzy to promote their debut self-titled EP.

The Stir leaves it all out there for you to take, so be ready; as The Stir will be embarking on a national tour in a city near you
