“Ways”
Oh she had her ways
Ways like a woman child
Said she’d never stay
Thought of it just drove her wild
Mother wasn’t worth a damn
You know her father didn’t care
So she painted it upon her face
And combed it through her hair

She’s the queen of broken hearts
Wrote the script and played the part
Patron saint of love betrayed
Oh that girl she had her ways

Oh she had her ways
Ways like a wounded child
Day after day
All he did was criticize
He’d say she wasn’t worth a damn
Said her friends they didn’t care
So she painted it upon her face
And combed it through her hair

She’s the queen of broken hearts
Wrote the script and played the part
Patron saint of love betrayed
Oh that girl she had her ways…

WAYS BLUE
New EP WAYS BLUE by The Cold Stares

Folks, I can’t begin to say what this means to us…

Folks, I can’t begin to say what this means to us or how humbling it is.
Lots of stuff going on behind the scenes that I wanted to share but didn’t want to spoil, Joe trying to help us is one. Don’t even have the words to express my gratitude at the moment.
PLEASE if you’re a fan/friend of the band drop by Joe Bonamassa on Instagram and show him some love on this post, would mean the world to us. Thank you!

“Might As Well Die”, the first single from…

“Might As Well Die”, the first single from the 2nd EP of the “Ways” album, “Ways White”, releases tonight at midnight. The song was recorded after the album was finished, and released on social media as a B-side for our fans. After the overwhelming response to the song, our label asked to add it to the record. We felt like it fit in nicely in the dark ballad and southern feel of WAYS WHITE. A special song to me as a songwriter, not really written to be heard- but connecting with so many people. We hope you will stream and share with your friends tomorrow- “Might as Well Die” by The Cold Stares

Might As Well Die

I was standing at the water’s edge
Wondering how it felt drown
Rather you tie me to cinder block
And send me on my way down
Then to tell me that I’ve lost my love
And have to say goodbye
My sun rises and sets in her eyes
And I know, lord I know, deep inside

I might as well die, might as well put me in the ground and say your goodbye,
In the sweet by and by, Lord knows if I can’t have her love, I might as well die

She held the key that opened up my cell
She sat me free and cared for me
She never asked about the scars I bore
Or the places I had seen
So find yourself a firing squad
And a tall oak tree
If you can’t see well enough to shoot me down
String me up, swing me high and set me free

Cause I might as well die, might as well put me in the ground and say your goodbye
In the sweet by and by, Lord knows if I can’t have her love, I might as well die

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!
