When Particles Collide
When Particles Collide
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 five sets of recordings: a six song demo, a four song EP, a ten song full length, a five song EP and a nine song full length. Their most recent recording, Photoelectric (June 2014) was released both digitally, on CD and on special limited edition pink vinyl.

Sasha and Chris tour the US extensively and during 2012, 2013 and 2014 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. 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.
Salem Wolves
"Boston's Salem Wolves dropped the new EP, Black Books, where Howlin' Jack, Isaac, and Woodrue howl out the hounds of heck on, "I Saw Hell", to the rumbling rough and ready, "Rumblr", unleashing the occultic underground observances, "There Be Wytches", to the doom destroying title cut finale. Salem Wolves are here to summon out your inner ache for rugged, and damned riffs that ride out into a thousand sunsets." -Impose Magazine

"That rumbling heard off in the distance is Salem Wolves. The north-of-Boston rock trio, based exactly where their name suggests, dropped their debut EP, Black Books, back in January, and it's a garage-pop and surf-rock mixer that puts a fresh spin on tested sounds... a gritty, hip-shaking number that tumbles along to the imagined sights of a bonfire beach party" - Vanyaland

"Salem Wolves bring a mix of garage-y noise, distorted witchy psych sounds, and pop sensibilities to life on Black Books. The more I hear it, the catchier it gets.... Trashy garage pop at its demented best." -Angelle Wood, WZLX Watch List

"Quite brilliant all-out garage rock... confident swagger" - Route for the Underdog


"Black Books, the new EP from Salem Wolves, is a solid release. It's garage rock tinged with a slightly poppier sound, but a lo-fi vibe, which gives it a Sebadoh meets garage rock sound. "I Saw Hell" is a Rocket From the Crypt style rocker with a touch of glam. "Rumblr" is the thrash rock version of "I Want Candy." Black Books comes highly recommended." - If It's Too Loud...

"A classic has to start somewhere." -WZLX

"Interesting for a couple of reasons; it's lo-fi and it's really about witches and shit like that. I don't know if these guys are crazy or think they're being funny, or actual Wiccans, or what, but I like this track." - Hearts Bleed Radio

"Raucous garage pop-rock" - MaineToday
