Arizona upstarts Archetypes Collide — Kyle Pastor (vocals), Brandon Baker and Jared Knister (guitars), Ky Sanders (bass), and Tyler Flamm (drums) — have quickly established themselves as a band unafraid to blur the lines between safety and innovation in heavy music. Soaring vocals, melodies, and heavy grooves swirl with passion and precision. The band will drop its self-titled debut on March 31 via Fearless Records. Pre-order it here.

The quintet has also shared the visualizer for the new single Parasite over at, along with an exclusive interview.

“Sometimes I let the wrong people work their way into my life,” explains Pastor. “They slowly steal my joy, drain my passions, and distort my dreams. This song is for anyone struggling to cut out the people that are bringing them down.”

Archetypes Collide will hit the road later this year supporting Beartooth and Trivium.
