Cold Tour Dates Announced
Launch Radio Networks reports: Florida-based band COLD has announced some dates to promote its upcoming fourth album, "A Different Kind Of Pain", which is due out on August 30. COLD frontman Scooter Ward went through all kinds of pain before making the disc: his fiancée left him, he entered rehab, two guitarists departed COLD, and the band split with its label. Worst of all, Ward's sister was given two months to live in a battle with cancer. Ward told Launch that writing the new record helped him get through this very rough patch. "Every song that I wrote, I'd go, 'I'm gonna make every song make me feel better, and when that song's done, I'm gonna feel better about myself and the situation that I've created,'" he said. "And it happened, and every song kept helping me. It made me stronger and helped me get through the drugs and all that stuff and the rehab and started changing my life. By the time the record was done, my life was good."
Ward says that his sister's illness is now in remission.
COLD revamped its lineup and signed a new deal with Lava/Atlantic Records last year.
The first single from "A Different Kind Of Pain" is called "Happens All The Time". Listen to it online at this location.
