Cold Video For "Happens All The Time" Online

COLD's video for their new single, "Happens All the Time", has been posted online at RollingStone.com.

"Happens All the Time" is the first single off the Florida-based band's upcoming fourth album, "A Different Kind Of Pain", which is due out on August 30.

COLD frontman Scooter Ward recently told Launch Radio Networks that he 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 their label. Worst of all, Ward's sister was given two months to live in a battle with cancer (Ward says that his sister's illness is now in remission).

COLD revamped their lineup and signed a new deal with Lava/Atlantic Records last year.

At least this sad bastard has a genuine angle. Most nu-metal singers are having to summon 10 and 20 year old demons or just make stuff up for thier music while sitting in their LA based mansion. Still these guys are a world apart from metal....Maybe grunge-metal, or alt-metal is more fitting.

Cold isnt anywhere close to metal, I agree. They shouldn't be on this website, but this doesn't mean they aren't good. And he is not a sad bastard. I've met him before. He is as good as they come.

Actually as radio-ready rock goes Cold are pretty decent. The lyrics to "Stupid Girl" were pathetic but those were penned by Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. Scooter Ward seems pretty sincerely miserable to me, especially given his history (things addressed here and elsewhere).

However, he seems sincere and as bands go Cold are very good about spending time with their fans, meet and greets, chatting with fans from their web site, working fans into performance clip videos, and just generally being human instead of c***y rockstars to their fanbase.

As for their music, theres a little bit to be desired as far as format (everything is 4 minutes verse, chorus, verse) but Wards voice and lyrics are a few cuts above the nu-metal set. Not metal, and very straightforward but decent nonetheless.

i think they are awsome. Their live shows, in my opinion, are jaw-dropping. Not like big stage, lasers kind of thing, but raw and close to the fans kind of show. id highly recommend them live.

I've caught em at a couple festival gigs, but I have yet to see them at one their own shows indoors, with only real fans. I'm hoping they'll come to Louisville while touring for the new record.

I have to stand in here.

I dont think there have been as many singers, much less bands that can touch people the way Scooter has. Layne Staley, Curt Kobain, come to mind, and dont try to pen me for comparing the three.

But Scooter is heads and tails talent wise above any radio band you can find me.

The rest of the band writes good music for what Scooter sings, they have a gel to them that is hard to continuosly master, but I think they do a damn good job of it.

I have to agree.

I was very impressed when I heard the first single off of "13" and generally speaking, I don't pick up albums based on a single or one song...... I picked the album up that week and ended up liking half of that record more than the song I bought it for. I bought their debut weeks later, and though it was a gritty affair with less interesting riffs Scooter Wards lyrics were still as moving as expected. "YOTS" was also quite the gem in my collection...."Wasted Years", "Cure my Tragedy", and "Gone Away" gave me goosebumps that lasted through to the end of each song.....As one can imagine I'm a bit excited about this album as well, whatever non-metal genre it may fit into.
