If you hadn’t noticed all the links on the front page, “Hard Times” from the upcoming LP “Heavy Shoes” on Mascot Records released today! Check it out! Hope you all dig it!
Announcement…Hard to believe it’s been over a year since we put out a full album. “Ways” in many “ways” opened a lot of doors for us. Over 5 million streams, so thank you to everyone that had rocked it. Today I’m very happy to announce that our first single “Hard Times” from the upcoming HEAVY SHOES album will be released March 25th, just three weeks away. This album has been so long in the making, such a long and winding road to finish, can’t tell you how excited we are to finally start to release it. I will be posting a pre-save link and clip hopefully within the next week, and we will be doing some very cool giveaways attached to the pre-release. Stay tuned, I think this one has been worth the wait, and we have some tricks up our sleeves….

Starting June 5th 2020 The Cold Stares will release a new song every two weeks for 12 months.
Initially our plan was to release three albums this year. After thought and discussion and putting ourselves in our fans shoes we thought this might be a better and creative way to proceed. As the songs release they will populate the albums and ep’s they belong to as well as become available for physical purchase if that’s your thing too. With the current environment smashing a lot of touring a festival plans we had, we were looking for a way to continue building the relationship we have with our fans and felt like this would be the route. In addition to the two week releases, on off weeks we will be having livestream performances that will include interactive set lists with our fans, video performances of the new songs for YouTube and special fan only merch deals.
We’ve always been about going about things on our own path in new ways and hope you will join us
