Grand Collapse formed in South Wales, 2011. Originally named Asylum we played our first gig above the Gower pub in Cardiff that summer. Soon after we changed the name and traveled around the UK playing to anyone who would listen. In February 2013 we recorded a self titled EP, a 3 track 7” distributed by Pumpkin Records. A year later we released our first full length album ‘Far From the Callous Crowd’ and toured regularly throughout the UK, mainland Europe and the U.S. In 2017 we recorded and released our second studio album ‘Along the Dew’. Below is a list of (I think) every gig we’ve ever played and some of the bands we shared a stage with. Thanks a million to anyone who has ever organised a show, ran the sound, made a flyer etc.
