Cold Premiere “Quiet Now” Music Video

Cold have premiered a new video for their song “Quiet Now.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Things We Can’t Stop.”

Scooter Ward commented:

“I had written the song, ‘Quiet Now,’ for a Cold Army member and dear friend, who had dealt with the loss of a family member during the recording of our new album. A photo was sent to me, of him and his father holding hands while his father was in the hospital… that photograph is what inspired the song. I knew the concept for the video needed to express the intense emotion of the song.

I contacted Patrick Huven from Ghost Motel and filmmaker Alex Schroer to direct and produce the video. I had previously watched their video for a song called ‘Hush‘ that they had created and loved the eeriness of it and their aesthetic. Patrick and I got together on the concept for the video being a mother mourning the loss of her child in solitude. We felt nothing could be more painful… the silence of it all. Not hearing the little sounds of a loved one who is no longer there.

However, the only problem was that he lives in Germany, and the distance would be an obstacle. We ended up shooting the story for the video in Germany and then my part here in the states. I reached out to our dear friend and amazing photographer, Dave Jackson, to film and direct my solo part. We filmed it in his studio in Wisconsin. The end result of the two merging together ended up being seamless and powerful.

With our world now being on lockdown and everyone experiencing their own levels of solitude, and a bit of silence, and with music being the conduit that holds us together, we felt now was the time to release the song. People are going through serious loss because of this on many levels, and music sometimes helps during these moments.

Our hopes are that a song can maybe help people feel not so alone in it all. Our hopes are that with music, perseverance, and the determination that is within us to overcome, things can be somewhat back to normal again soon.

We love you all. Stay healthy and follow the guidelines to ensure your safety. Our hearts are with you.”

Cold Postpone Spring U.S. Tour

Cold have postponed their spring U.S. tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are hoping to reschedule the shows at a later date.

Cold said the following:

“The well-being of our fans and our families have always been our top priority. And as broken-hearted as we are to do this, out of caution and due to increasing concerns over this virus, COLD will be postponing our “Different Kind of Tour” until further notice.

We thank all of you for understanding and supporting us during these unforeseen circumstances. Please stay safe. This too shall pass and hopefully, for all of the artists who had dates coming up, who had to cancel…. hopefully we’ll all be back out there soon.

While we wait for new dates to be booked, if you’d like a refund on your VIP tickets, please reach out to Sound Rink directly.

This all just happened today, so we are discussing options with promoters and venues to discuss new dates and/or refunding tickets for those who have already purchased. Again, this is a postponement. Not a cancellation.

We are going to continue to stay updated on this as we get more information. We will keep #Coldarmy informed.”

Cold Confirm That Their Upcoming Tour Is Not An Acoustic Run

Cold recently announced “A Different Kind Of Tour,” which was said to feature “stripped down” sets of new songs and fan-favorites. The band have since issued a statement about the trek to make it clear that they are not doing an acoustic tour.

Cold said the following:

“Cold would like to address an issue: Some platforms are mistakenly calling our new tour an “acoustic tour”. It is not. The goal of the tour has been, and still is to create a emotional, intimate night with the band and fans, as we play through all your favorites in addition to ones we haven’t played in years.

A chosen few will be slightly different variations of the songs. Cold Live is a perfect example. We played new versions using piano with strings, such as Cure my Tragedy, Bleed, and Black Sunday. We intend to play those, while adding Ugly, Wasted years, and Gone Away.

Some nights, we may go into a story about how a song or album were created. Some nights, we may go into what inspired the song.

The set will be delivered with a mix, along with songs that will be played as they have always been intended, creating unique melodic, heavy moments throughout the night.

In other words, it’s just a dope ass Cold show, with members of University Drive opening the show who will be performing their songs acoustically.

It will be an amazing night for all involved. Can’t wait to see you all. All our love.”
