Colossal Street Jam have been makin serious waves thanks to new manager Jimmy Warren, owner of JW Artist Management and Fretbar Records.

Having toured Europe on their own, Colossal will be heading out on another international trek soon, this time with Jimmy’s help, as well as a fantastic team he and the band have assembled. To celebrate, "My Fight, Alone" from the forthcoming reissue of the Jersey Shore band’s latest album, “No Way to Live,” is the Makin Waves Song of the Week.

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “My Fight, Alone” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on April 12 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com. If you miss it, you can tune in any time in the archives at The Penguin and Mixcloud.

“This tune is a little different for us as it's more of a dark ballad,” co-founding vocalist Gene Potts said. “It's a song about facing an anxiety disorder through the hard times in life. Although it's not the next single, it's a song we felt we could share with before the release.”

The next single off the album, "Big Trouble," is being readied for May release as the radio promotion and publicity portion of the team is assembled.

Upcoming tour dates will start in Las Vegas the first week of June.

“We are hoping to hit the road throughout the Summer and Fall with a few of the acts that JW Artist Management is now booking, including Molly Hatchet and Kingdom Come,” Gene said. “We love being with JW and all the bands that are with the agency.”

"I tell everyone that I'm the last surviving original member of my band, however I had a 50/50 chance where some other guys didn't," laughed John Ford Coley as he reflected upon his former partnership with the late England Dan, current bands with no original members, his very loyal fan base and his fellow mellow rockers as they get ready to bring "Rock The Dock" to Englewood, NJ for a night of some of the greatest adult contemporary and easy listening tunes ever created.
