Alt-rockers Collective Soul will remain on the road throughout much of 2010 in support of the band's most recent studio album, an eponymous set issued last fall.
The Atlanta-based outfit continues to support last year's self-titled effort, informally known as "Rabbit," the band's eighth studio set and first since 2007's "Afterwords." The 11-track album, which marked the group's debut for the Loud & Proud/Roadrunner label, is the band's first to feature songs--"You" and "Understanding"--written by all the members of the group.
"Everybody just really took a big step, dug in, and worked together as a band. It was really nice," lead singer/guitarist/keyboardist Ed Roland said in a press release. "It made everything smoother and that's why I think it's the best work we've done in years."
The multi-platinum rockers have had several tracks make it to the big screen in recent months. "Hollywood," a cut from the band's 2007 release "Afterwords," was featured on the soundtrack to the tween blockbuster "Twilight," while season-seven "American Idol" winner David Cook performed the rockers' 1995 hit "The World I Know" near the season's end. Roland subsequently collaborated with Cook on his eponymous debut, which surfaced in 2008.
