When Particles Collide

Artist/Band

Sasha and Chris met in Bangor Maine during a 2010 local production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Sasha was cast as a guitar playing Yitzhak and Chris played Schlatko, the band’s drummer. Six months later the two were a band, and three years later the band became a marriage.

Since forming in 2010, When Particles Collide has self-released seven sets of recordings: a six song demo (Mass to Energy), a four song EP (Making Enemies), a ten song full length (Pop!Pop!Bang!Bang!), a five song EP (EGO), a nine song full length (Photoelectric), a very personal six song EP (This Town), and a collaborative 4 song EP (ECOTONE).

Sasha and Chris tour the US extensively and during 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 averaged between 70-95 shows per year. During the summer of 2014 they completed a marathon 8 week, coast to coast tour of the entire US. March of 2015 and 2016 found them playing 15 shows in 16 days and two more 8 week summer tour taking them back to many of their favorite cities and new ones. All of their booking and promoting, like their recordings are 100% D.I.Y. keeping the American spirit of self-reliance, tenacity and resourcefulness alive and well.

The music of When Particles Collide includes Southern Rock choruses, New Wave a la Blondie vocals, lightning speed Green Day-esque drumming, classic Motown grooves and Queens of the Stone Age-style riffs — and yet somehow it all sounds like Chris and Sasha.
