Artists

This year we’re excited for performances by Journey, Collective Soul, and Big Wreck.

The Stampede Roundup

Collective Soul

Journey

Big Wreck

With four platinum albums and seven No. 1 singles to their name, Collective Soul has dominated mainstream alternative rock since the early 1990s. The origins of their success stretch back to lead singer Ed Roland’s 1993 demo and the track “Shine,” recorded in a Georgia basement and first played by a college radio station in Atlanta.

Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, a re-release of Roland’s demo, was a massive hit and sold over two million copies. The band’s self-titled sophomore album, released in 1995, spent an astounding 76 weeks on the Billboard 200, has been certified 3x platinum, and produced three No. 1 hits. Collective Soul closed out the decade in historic fashion when “Heavy,” the lead single off 1999’s Dosage, spent a record-breaking fifteen weeks atop the charts. The new millennium saw Collective Soul create its own label, record the first theme song to American Idol, appear as musical guests on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and receive an induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

Lead singer Ed Roland, his brother and rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, long-time bassist Will Turpin, lead guitarist Jesse Triplett, and drummer Johnny Rabb are set to release their highly anticipated ninth album, See What You Started by Continuing, later this year.

In a career spanning five decades, Journey is blazing hotter than ever with the lineup of Neal Schon (guitars, backing vocals), Jonathan Cain (keyboards, backing vocals), Ross Valory (bass, backing vocals), Dean Castronovo (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals). With worldwide album sales exceeding an astronomical 90 million units, Journey is one of the best selling bands of all time.

Journey defined the classic rock sound with their fifth and most commercially successful studio album, Escape, which topped the charts with hits including “Who’s Crying Now” and the timeless anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin.’” The band's next album, Frontiers, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, sold more than six million copies, and generated four Top 40 Hits, including "Separate Ways" and "Faithfully."

Journey remains nothing short of iconic, with their music enduring and becoming even more popular decades after its release. The band's seminal anthem, "Don't Stop Believin'," became a sensation after being featured in the final scene of The Sopranos series finale and in the pilot of the hit TV show Glee. Since the group's formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums. Their Greatest Hits album has sold 15 million copies since its release in 1988, and Revelation, the first album to feature new lead singer Arnel Pineda, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

In one of the most unlikely success stories in rock 'n' roll history, Schon discovered Pineda in a cover band via YouTube. He quickly tracked down the incredible singer in the Philippines, and invited him to audition for the band he co-founded three decades prior. A new era of Journey was born.

Although founding members Ian Thornley and Brian Doherty met at the Berkley School of Music in Boston Massachusetts, Big Wreck is undeniably Canadian. After relocating to Toronto after three years in New England, Big Wreck signed a major deal with Atlantic Records and released their first album, In Loving Memory Of, in 1997. Its lead single, “The Oaf,” was a Top 10 Hit in the United States, but the album, which went 2x Platinum, resonated north of the 49th Parallel, leading 2001’s The Pleasure and the Greed to debut at No. 10 on the Canadian Album Chart.

The next decade saw Thornley and Doherty pursue solo projects, but the reunion and return of Big Wreck in the late 2000s was triumphant as their spectacular 2012 comeback album, Albatross, debuted at No. 5 on the Canadian Album Charts and earned a nomination for Rock Album of the Year at the 2013 Juno Awards. Big Wreck was back and was here to stay. With 2014’s Ghosts, which also debuted at No. 5 and was recently nominated for the Rock Album of the Year Juno in March, the band is at the height of its critical and commercial success.
