Formed in Milwaukee, WI, in 1997, Freshwater Collins continues to slay audiences nationwide with their unique take on psychedelic rock and roll.  Refusing to be pigeonholed as simply "stoner-rock," Freshwater Collins are currently working very hard on over-compressing their (already) big drum sounds and over-saturating the tape machine with extra guitar on their yet to be titled new album.  The forthcoming record, produced by Beau Sorensen (Death Cab for Cutie, Sparklehorse), will be the bands fifth LP.

In the meantime, feel free to purchase (several copies) of their latest album release "These Days Lately". The band worked on the record with renowned producer Mike Hoffmann (Violent Femmes) for over a year to create this album.

Freshwater Collins are also building momentum through spirited live performances throughout the country as well as major festival performances alongside The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, The Go! Team, The Black Crowes, and Kings of Leon. "These Days Lately" is out now - go pick it up at your favorite record store or use the link below.
