ANNOUNCEMENT!

So we’ve come up with a plan. We are going to release a “pre-save” button next week for “White Girl”. When you click the link it will save “White Girl” into your streaming service so when it’s released you’ll have it in your library ready to rock. This helps us IMMENSELY by bumping the numbers and helping us get into the playlists that promote the album.
We will do this with the following releases as well.
So here’s the kicker- when you Pre-Save, it will also send you a link to a unreleased Cold Stares track that will ONLY be available to those who pre-save. Our way of saying thank you, and you’ll have something that no one else in the digital world will own.
Here’s a few of the unreleased tracks that you’ll find-
“Patient Man”- a track we cut for a movie trailer that they ended up not using. Unlike anything you’ve heard us do before.
“Honey”- a track we had previously cut for Jack Daniels that is a very old school rocker
“Whipping Post” our take on the classic by the Allman Bros, remixed and remastered
What else is coming you ask? Well everyone loves surprises and we think you will be very happy with what you find!
We only ask that you please help us get as many of your friends to presave next week too!

“I Might As Well Die” Unreleased track from Ways B sides

“I Might As Well Die” unreleased.
A thank you to all our fans who have been patiently waiting for the new music to release. Here’s a B-side not on the album with a bit more rootsy southern feel to help tie you over. We may have a project like this one day as well….
HAPPY FRIDAY and share if you like. TCS.

Ways in Thirds

Trying to make 3 completely different projects at one time, in multiple locations, and still keep them connected for the final album was a daunting task. The songs cover everything from the heroin epidemic “White Girl”, to John the Baptist “Ain’t the One”, to southern gothic stories “Jackson Mississippi, to betrayal “I Was A Fool” which you are hearing us mix here. “I Was A Fool” is on the blues EP section and was cut using the same mic #howlingwolf used. First time I’ve got straight strat for a track, as usually it’s just not thick enough for the two piece thing. Love the end result and hope you will too.

And that’s a wrap for “Ways”

And that’s a wrap. 18 hour day concludes the recording and mixing of WAYS. Beyond exhausted. Can’t tell you how hard this crew worked on this album. Going to NYC to Andy Vandette for mastering this week and we hope to be able to share release dates soon. @briandadrumma @letsjumpin @wes_lee_ @samphillipsrecording
