Formed in 2018, Collision of Innocence has quickly become the "dark horse" of Christian Rock. This South Carolina hard rock band has a comparable sound to bands like Red, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Chevelle, Memphis MayFire, and Deftones. With airplay on over 400 radio stations worldwide, they have charted several songs on the Christian Rock Radio Charts. Most notably, their 2019 single "Eyes Like Fire" that topped out at #13 with zero radio promotion.
Started as a studio project, COI have spent most of their time and energy on writing heavy yet spiritual songs and use their abilities to pitch their songs to playlists as the world turns to streaming services more than ever. In 2020, they topped 1 million streams worldwide and have been featured on nearly every high level Christian Rock Playlist on Spotify. Lyrically, they cast no doubt on the face of our struggles but point to faith in Christ as a solution in a artistic way. Their 2020 single "Today We Rise" is now airing on many radio outlets as it continues to rise up the charts.
Collision of Innocence formed in 2018 with members: Wes Deloach (vocals, guitar), Chuck Benton (guitar vocals) , Joshua Barton (drums), Randy Elswick (guitar/keys). In just about 2 years, COI has released 8 singles on their own Indy Label Elohim Music Inc.
