“It evolved from me seeing people fighting on social media and on the news. People getting gaslighted daily. I had enough of all the noise from it. It’s basically a siren for the silent majority to stand up and take control back. A revolution.”

Cold Premiere New Song “Shine”, Reveal Details For New Album “The Things We Can’t Stop”

Cold have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Shine.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Things We Can’t Stop,” which will be released on September 13.

Scooter Ward said the following about the song:

“It’s about dealing with physical abuse at home and becoming triumphant over bullying. I faced bullying throughout my early formative years. I’m hoping it helps someone feel not so alone if they’re going through it right now.”

He also discussed it further with Billboard:

“Nobody wants to have their kids come home bawling and having a hard time. Just to know it still existed was heartbreaking. So, of course, I got online and started looking up things, and that just inspired me. And like with most Cold songs, I wanted to give people an outlet, make them feel like there’s a way out, that this isn’t going to last forever and it might — that’s a ‘might’ — get better. That’s why the chorus is so uplifting. I’m trying to say that you feel alone when it’s happening, but nothing lasts forever.”

He also added the following about the record, which he describes as “very moody” and “melancholy”:

“It’s a different kind of heavy. The heavy things to me in life have always been the weight of the songs — not the actual rhythms or the loudness of the guitar.”

“I wanted to bring in some elements from older Cold records. I think it’s important to go back and have that for fans, too, even if most of the album is different.”

He also talked about the eight year gap between albums:

“I needed life to happen to be able to create. There were probably around 15 years where all I did was live and breathe the band. I needed to separate from that to remember what it was like to not have it anymore. It was extremely important for me to spend time with my family. I did experience writer’s block for the first time in my life during the process though.

It was brutal, because the one thing I’ve always had—left me. It seemed the series of events in my life had taken away my soul. It turned around. I’ve remained adamant about evolving a bit with each record. Approaching every chapter as a new beginning is paramount and necessary for it to be a true Cold album.”
