Collisions and Castaways is the fifth studio album by Alaskan metalcore band 36 Crazyfists. The album was released in the UK on July 26, 2010 and in the rest of the world on July 27, 2010.[3] The album sold around 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release, and debuted at #161 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The album features guest appearances from Twelve Tribes frontman Adam Jackson, Raithon Clay of Plans to Make Perfect, and Brandon Davis from Across The Sun. Production duties for the album were handled by the band's guitarist Steve Holt.[4]

Overview[edit]

"Collisions and Castaways" was written and recorded between October 2009 and May 2010. It follows on the heels of the band's DVD Underneath a Northern Sky and is the band's second album to feature guitarist Steve Holt producing and Andy Sneap handling the final mix.

Brock Lindow, vocalist and lyricist has said "If this was the end of the band, this record is exactly what I wanted our band to do at one time, Maybe a lot of people will think we're just metalcore, but it's so much more than that. It's a heavy record with some big choruses and everything we've been about for a long time with a cool metal feel to it that I've been wanting."[5]

The album's first single will be "Reviver".
