The Cold Stares 2018 – Snippet of things to come

Ok. So many things we have to share with you guys for 2018. We have to keep the lid on the details of a lot of these things until they are finalized- but I have to say we are super stoked about the upcoming year.
Can’t go without giving our fans a little sneak peak at least-
Details will come out about all these things by December 1st.

1- There will be a limited edition new Cold Stares CD released in January that will be FREE- and only available in Evansville at all Azzip locations. We are super stoked to be teaming up with Azzip Pizza and trust me you are going to be seeing, hearing and reading about this one a lot… coinciding with the promotion will be gigs in Jan/Feb/March at various Evansville locations that you may not have seen us before. We had 68,000 streams in the last week from cities around the world- Evansville was not in the top 20, we are about to change that. And yes WE LIVE HERE. First show is at Backstage Jan 5th, and you don’t want to miss it. Other dates announcing soon-

2- We are doing a residency EVERY month of 2018 at our favorite venue Lafayette’s in Memphis. We are also doing a FREE Cold Stares CD that will be available in Memphis for our fans available at the club only. Memphis you’ve shown us some love, and we are returning it. This is DEFINITELY worth a road trip. We’ve played at the best venues in the country, and this is one of the best. If you have friends or family in Memphis, please help us spread the word….

3- There will be a live full length Cold Stares album released in 2018.

4- There will be a new full length follow up to “Head Bent” album released late summer/fall 2018 of 12 new Cold Stares songs.

5- There will be a national tour and European dates, as well as some other possible international shows.

6- You will be hearing more Cold Stares music on your favorite television shows.

7- There will be a host of Cold Stares giveaways including an huge Turntable/stereo giveaway partnering with our label Small Stone Records and a soon to be disclosed company.

8- Tour dates with another well known National act.

And more….
Stay tuned and please help us continue to spread the word about our album Head Bent with your friends. Please save our music into your playlists and libraries on Spotify and iTunes music as well. And please continue to email Bluesville and Octane and request our music! We thank you for your support and hope we can give it all back to you guys in 2018. Here we come……. TCS

Out in Public

More and more we are getting stopped in public by folks we don’t know that recognize us and come up and just want to tell us how much they are into what we are doing.
Just wanted to thank each and every one of you that are on this page for the time you take out of your busy lives to listen to our music, come see us live, or share our music with someone else. It is very humbling, and rewarding to see how our music can affect someone else’s world. This is “our” band, meaning Brian, myself, and every one of you who has helped get the word out about The Cold Stares. Whatever talent we have, we give God the glory for that, whatever success we have- have to credit every one of you guys as well- Thank You All, and please don’t ever give up on rock and roll- CT
