Following the release of “Can’t Hold Me Down” in November 2020, (click HERE for that album review), one of Rock at Night’s favorites, the band Collateral are back with a reissue of their first single “Midnight  Queen.” This time they have added Danny Vaughn of Tyketto as the lead vocalist alongside the band’s crooner, Angelo Tristan. “Tyketto was one of my inspirations growing up,” says Angelo. “To have Danny on one of our tracks is unbelievable. When one of your idols says how great your track is, it makes you feel like you’re doing something right. I can’t wait for all the Tyketto fans to hear it.”

I was overwhelmed when Danny said that he wanted to be part of this,” says Collateral’s lead guitarist Todd Winger. “One of the all-time legendary rock voices digging our tunes, let alone wanting to join us on one is inspiring beyond belief! He is one of the nicest guys in the business. Thank you, Danny.”

Collateral is busy this month with festival appearances at Planet Rockstock, Hard Rock Hell and Winterstorm. Before heading off to tour Europe, Collateral  return to the UK in February and March 2022 as special guests on Dan Reed Network and Reckless Love’s co-headline UK tour that includes London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Cardiff, and Southampton.

About the single “Midnight Queen” Rock at Night says: “Love this rock and roll song, a cross of 70’s and 80’s classic rock and album rock with a bit of southern rock and pop thrown in. The lyrics cover admiration of a woman the singer or subject sees from afar. Great retro sound and guitar solo and nice hooks to sing along to!
