Here are Blood’s chart positions:

#3         Alternative Albums
#4         Independent Albums
#5         Rock Albums
#12       Digital Albums
#15       Top Current Albums

Blood was released June 21 on Fuzze-Flex Records/ADA as a download or CD on any of these digital retailers. Vinyl copies of the album are currently available on the band’s official website, and will be available at retailers on Friday, July 19.

While the album title, Blood, maybe evoke many different thoughts and ideas, for the band, it all comes down to one word: family. “I think Blood expresses where we’ve been on this life journey,” observes singer/guitarist E Roland. “And we’ve done so with songs featuring piano and strings to those with a lot of guitar riffs. Blood is an accumulation of all the different styles we’ve used over the years, but it’s still Collective Soul. I think it’s the best we’ve ever done. I know you should think that, but I really do think it’s the best. It’s a good, consistent record. We’re just so proud of it.”
