Archetypes Collide, a metalcore band hailing from Phoenix, AZ, crashed onto the scene in 2014 with a hard-hitting single, “Hollow Ground,” followed by their first EP, aptly titled Foundations. The band has been rocking ever since, including becoming two-time finalists in 98KUPD’s Playdio competition. Archetypes Collide spent 2020 recording with Beartooth’s Nick Ingram and Oshie Bichar, kicking off their quarantined-fueled Digital Session online shows and releasing four more singles. Most recently, the band also joined the Next Wave Virtual Concert Series this past May.

I want to perform at ____

KP/AC: To one day perform at the Coachella festival, just the amount of talent that continues to show up there is insane.

I want  ____ streams
