Collision Course saves heavy music blog Kill Your Stereo, names Lili Jean Berry as editor

Brisbane-based marketing and promo shop Collision Course has acquired heavy music masthead Kill Your Stereo from its previous owner, Alex Sievers, and relaunched it today.

Collision Course is part of Stephen Green’s SGC Media Group, which also owns and operates media properties, Purple Sneakers, and Countrytown.

Lili Berry has been appointed editor and community manager, and will also oversee The Faction Radio which can now be found on Kill Your Stereo, according to a statement.

Berry (pictured, below) joins Kill Your Stereo from Unified Music Group where she was part of the Super Special Merchandise team and has a long history in the heavy music scene.

“I’ve been a reader of Kill Your Stereo for years,” Berry said.

“I love heavy music and can’t wait to talk about it with you all every day. I believe we have an insanely bright future ahead of us and I’m genuinely stoked to be a part of this next chapter.”

The revival of Kill Your Stereo, which went into hiatus last year, arrives ahead of The Faction Hardest 100 on Saturday. The countdown, now in its fifth year, is sponsored by Amazon Music.

The broadcast starts at midday, AEDT, and is also available to stream on iHeartRadio Australia.

Collision Course managing director, Tim Price, said the fit was natural for the business and that respect for the legacy of the brand was at the heart of the acquisition.

“Last year Alex messaged me directly, to let me know he was going to delete the site after so many years of service and wanting to move on to something new,” said Price.

“I asked him to pause for a minute so that we could get a plan together to allow it to live on and we are so glad he has entrusted us to do that. We’re so proud to be able to preserve its fifteen-year legacy and build on its stories and history for the next fifteen and beyond.”
