Cold have announced a September 13th release date for their sixth studio album, and Napalm Records debut, 'The Things We Can't Stop'.
In support of the album, Cold will hit the road late this Summer and into early Fall. The outing, dubbed the 'Broken Human Tour', is the band’s first in over 8 years, and kicks off August 29th and runs through October 20th.
“Cold would like to thank everyone that helped with setting up our first tour in over 8 years. We look forward to seeing all of you at the shows. You all mean so much to me and I look forward to our Cold family reunion! Love to you all,” says frontman SW.
Cold have always documented memories and moments in song, etching them forever in diaristic lyrics, cinematic production, and airy guitars. Since their 1997 self-titled debut, the group fronted by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist SW, has consistently converted pain into poetry consumed by a legion of diehard fans affectionately dubbed, the “Cold Army.”
2017 saw Ward turn his attention to Cold through once again surveying the events of an ever-changing journey and relying on the same internal compass responsible for his catalog thus far.
In order to overcome the drought, he returned to his “alternative roots,” spinning his favorite records from The National, Interpol, and Placebo, in addition to reading a number of musician biographies. Discovering Nick Cave’s 'One More Time With Feeling' documentary proved eye-opening. Not only did he watch the film over twenty times and develop a deeper appreciation for the artist, but Ward credits “him for breaking my block.”
In the end, 'The Things We Can’t Stop' shines a light on life’s tragedy, only to color it with beauty as Cold have always done.
