Interview: Archetypes Collide

7 years after the release of their first EP ‘Foundations’, Phoenix, AZ based band Archetypes Collide have found sure footing with a solid launchpad thanks to Sirius XM Octane and their listeners. Which is how we here at Alive N’ Loud Magazine have discovered the band. Lead by front-man Kyle Pastor and backed by his hard-hitting bandmates, Ky, Tyler, Jared and Brandon, the valley rockers from Phoenix have our attention and that of a bigger audience. Looking ahead, the band have recently released a second number 1 single with "Above It All" just after letting their previous single "Your Misery" breathe for a bit and allowing us to all catch our breath from the high-energy and guttural song.


Our fearless staffer and co-host of Alive & Loud Podcast recently caught up with the band live from their home in Phoenix, Arizona to discuss all their recent success as well as why this band and these songs mean so much to them. Don’t miss our season finale episode below!


Archetypes Collide: “We have been practicing our butts off—I want to be able to share this with people and head-bang with these people—and let these songs be heard the way they were meant to be heard. "
