Following their long-awaited reunion, with the November release of Aurora and frenzied headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney, today, Children Collide unveils Funeral For A Ghost

The new single and Beat Club inspired video available via Spinning Top Records | Caroline Australia, will feature on their forthcoming fourth studio album

To mark the release, the trio will host an exclusive album preview on FacebookPremiere and InstagramTV on Sunday 6 September @ 3:00pm AEST.

Recorded by Loren Humphrey at Diamond Mine & Stockholm Syndrome in New York City, Funeral For A Ghost is doused with propulsive rhythms and explosive energy.  “I wrote it on an old Roland loop pedal when I was living in a dungeon in North Melbourne an eon ago,” says frontman/guitarist Johnny Mackay of the track.

“I had to open a trap door to get down to my room and you could see where a tunnel had been bricked up on my bedroom wall. I was listening to a lot of Sonic Youth at the time, constantly rotating between Murray St and Confusion is Sex. Listening to it now, the lyrics sound like I wrote them last week about COVID conspiracy nuts. Time is a flat circle,” he muses. 

Directed by Lord Fascinator and filmed by Nico White and Dave Meagher, the visual accompaniment for Funeral For A Ghost deftly captures the meteoric onstage chemistry between Mackay, drummer Ryan Caesar and live bassist Chelsea Wheatley, who performs as Chela.

A live phenomenon, Children Collide have played sets at SXSW, The Great Escape, Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo and the Big Day Out. They’ve performed countless sold-out headline shows across the nation in addition to dates in London, Paris, LA, New York and Tokyo.   Earlier this year, they joined Bad//Dreems, West Thebarton, Hayley Mary and more at Fire Aid in Adelaide with a stern reminder of what audiences had been missing.

Funeral For A Ghost and Aurora are the first releases since the twice ARIA-nominatedband’s third studio album Monument in 2012.  It was another enduringly popular LP, following 2008‘s The Long Now and 2010’s Theory Of Everything, which debuted at #5 on the ARIA album chart and claimed the triple j feature album. 

Their repertoire includes some of the most well-loved Australian singles of the past decade, a roll call that includes Social CurrencySkeleton DanceChosen ArmiesLoveless and triple j hottest 100 entries Farewell RocketshipJellylegs and My Eagle.
