And we are LIVE. “White Girl” The first single off of “WAYS” album and the “WAYS BLACK” EP has been released today. First 48 hours are so crucial to making playlists and features so please, if you dig it stream and share with your friends today. Massive amount of work going into this album, and it feels amazing for it to finally start to see light. Hit the road for tour this morning and check in with you all soon!
Stream White Girl from your streaming service here! –> White Girl
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!

Sitting in the dark going through the final touches of the acoustic EP portion of WAYS. Definitely the most thought and effort I’ve ever put into a project. There’s not a note or syllable that’s not been purposely chosen, not any detail of the artwork without meaning. Hoping it conveys to our fans the same. A lot of journeys to follow and stories to lose yourself in on this album. Hope you will join us for the ride-
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. 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
