Collective Soul’s 25th Anniversary Tour is stopping at the RidgefieldPlayhouse on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Ever since the barn-burning rock band from Stockbridge, Ga., burst onto the national scene with the runaway success of its multi-platinum debut, “Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid,” and its ensuing mega hits like “Shine” and “Breathe,” the ’90s alt-rock hitmakers have been on an upward trajectory that’s seen them play to sold-out audiences while amassing a hefty catalog of songs, including memorable tracks like “December,” “The World I Know,” “Gel” and “Heavy.”

In addition to celebrating its 25th anniversary, the band is on tour supporting a new album, “Blood,” that represents a quarter-century of Collective Soul assessing not only where they’ve come from, but also where they’re going.

“I think ‘Blood’ expresses where we’ve been on this life journey,” guitarist/vocalist Ed Roland said. “And we’ve done so with songs featuring piano and strings to those with a lot of guitar riffs. ‘Blood’ is an accumulation of all the different styles we’ve used over the years — but it’s still Collective Soul. I think it’s the best we’ve ever done. I know you should think that, but I really do think it’s the best. It’s a good, consistent record. We’re just so proud of it.”

Besides Roland, Collective Soul features Dean Roland, rhythm guitar; Jesse Triplett, lead guitar/background vocals; Will Turpin, bass/background vocals; and Johnny Rabb, drums/background vocals.
