We are happy to say that we are now at the final stage with production of the new Cold album. I would sincerely like to thank you all for your continued patience.
I needed some extra time to make sure the music was perfect and up to the standards that you all deserve. Would also like to thank our management and the lovely Napalm Records for allowing us the time it took to make our 6th studio album. Next month we will be able to post the official release date, artwork, and title of our new album.
I would also like to welcome Colds new touring line up for the upcoming year ! Myself, Nick Coyle, Lindsay Manfredi and a big welcome to Ethan York and Johnny Nova. We welcome Ethan and Johnny to Cold and look forward to many new memories on the road with them this year.
And lastly! Ive missed you all more than you can know. Can not wait to get back on tour and see my Cold family!! Exciting year for all of us at Cold! Much love to each and everyone of you. SW”

Scooter Ward has offered an update on the new Cold album. You can read that below.
“UPDATE from S.W. to Cold Army on new album and future events!
Hey guys! 1st off I’m hoping Everyone is doing well and things are going GREAT for all of you.
I will keep this short as I’m finishing up lyrics on the last couple of songs with time and focus being key right now.
Our apologies for stopping the studio updates and going dark with the new album. Truth is that for the first time in my career I experienced writers block. I’ve always been able to sit down, write music, and have the words flow freely. It had been effortless in the past. The music for the album was easy. The lyrics? Not so much. I needed this record to be top notch. As with all our records I treated this as the most important album of my career. Thankfully my lyric writing is back and in full force. Things are flowing once again and better than ever.
Life sometimes stop you in your tracks and there were a few personal things happening that affected my thought process. As you guys know. Family comes first. Some of the events and emotions will be clear to you all when you hear the new songs. Its a beautiful album and I’m hoping you guys are going to love it. Its definitely something for everyone. Little bit of all the Cold albums wrapped up into one and some new sounds too. The album title and release dates are coming soon! New album will be available this year!
We have new management with Primary Wave and are locking in some dates for a November through December tour in the states. Cold has decided to start off with a acoustic/storytellers tour. Very intimate cool setting .Similar to the one we did before the release of Year of the Spider. Yet bigger and better! We will also be touring Europe next year!! Its been way too long! We are all very excited about seeing our Cold family again and sharing the music with you.
Missed you guys so much! You guys truly are my extended family and I thank you all for your patience and loyalty throughout this long process. But in the end it will all be worth it and we can move forward and create new memories together. Coldarmy.com is currently under construction. There will be a splash page put up this week and new content will soon be added. We are excited to get our first real Cold store up and running . Going to get you all involved with ideas for new Merch!!
Also in the near future I will be doing a video chat with you guys to answer any and all questions about line up changes ,upcoming tours ,merchandise ,song meanings, and anything else we can think of! Will be nice to hear from everyone and catch up! The long wait is almost over!! Cant wait to see you all again! Love and miss you all very much! Stay tuned! Things are about to lift off! S.W.”
