The current state of terrestrial radio has created an alternate music reality where an artist's history often seems to begin and end with their most popular songs, which is why the casual Collective Soul fan may not necessarily be aware that the band who made their bones with such singles as "Shine," "December," and "The World I Know" in the '90s has, in fact, continued to release albums all along.

As such, it may be a shock - albeit a pleasant one, hopefully - to discover that not only is the band celebrating their 30th anniversary, but they're also on the cusp of releasing their 12th studio album, Here to Eternity.

But you don’t have to have been following Collective Soul’s career all along to appreciate this new record, of course. In fact, there’s a particular aspect of the record that should stand out to just about any rock and roll fan: it was recorded by the band – with the assistance of co-producer Shawn Grove – at Elvis Presley’s estate in Palm Springs, California, making Collective Soul only the second artist ever to record there.

“As as a kid determined that rock n’ roll was my life, I dreamed of making a double album,” said frontman Ed Roland in the press release announcing the new LP. “Well, here you go! Wow, wow, and wow. Twenty songs that truly show the personality of this band and our musical journey! This record is not the pinnacle of the band, but it’s the best one yet! Should we all feel the next day as our best? Well, enjoy our best ‘til the next one.”

Here to Eternity is the band's second album to be released on their own label, Fuzze-Flex. Their stint with Atlantic Records lasted for five albums, ending with their 2000 LP, Blender; the first four albums all went platinum, and while Blender only went gold, it still climbed to No. 22 on the Billboard 200, only one spot lower than its predecessor, 1999's Dosage. Since then, they've released two albums with the El Music Group, one on Loud & Proud, and one on Vanguard before shifting to their own aforementioned label.

The band's full list of 2024 tour dates can be found below.
