"By far, my favorite new musical discovery of 2019. These guys are killer. Do yourself a favor and check them out!" - Joe Bonamassa

 

Authenticity. A word that is frequently used in describing The Cold Stares, and frequently missing from modern music discussions. “We’re not just a blues band, or just a rock band, or anything other than who we are,” front man Chris Tapp says. There is a power and a realness that is arrived at by just doing what you do best. The Cold Stares do that.

 

Formed in 2012 after the duo had spent a number of years in other bands, Chris Tapp and Brian Mullins got together for the sole reason to just jam. No preconceived notions on what the project should be. The result is a hard rocking, story-based brand of rock and roll that is sung from the soul. Chris’ unique guitar rig, along with Mullin’s giant bass drum provide a visual and sonic landscape for the two to travel on different paths than other acts. In fact, you may find yourself looking for another secret member - “The first time I saw them,” says Nashville radio personality Dan Buckley, “I thought they had at least two other musicians secretly behind the curtain. There’s just no way that sound comes from the two of them.”

 

The bands upcoming release WAYS was recorded at legendary Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis. The project is compiled of three separate EPs, including the hard rock EP WAYS BLACK, acoustic EP WAYS WHITE, and blues EP WAYS BLUE. The album is a culmination of the band’s various influences that make up their unique sound. The first EP release, WAYS BLACK, features songs that have been placed in close to a dozen editorial playlists across streaming platforms. In addition, the EP has garnered accolades from celebrities like Joe Bonamassa, and two of the tracks have been chosen as “Track of the Week” in Classic Rock Magazine.

 

“This will go on for an hour. Between songs, people will whisper. They’re asking one another if anyone knows who the hell this is. And it’s here that you and everyone in the room will have the same realization just about everyone else has the first time they see they hear the Cold Stares live: These guys are better than the band you came to see.” - Radley Balko, Huffington Post

 

Their songs have been licensed by Dodge Motor Company, ESPN, NFL, X-Games, TNT Network, and Monster Energy.
