Cold World Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

Pennsylvania hardcore act Cold World has announced an upcoming string of tour dates in May and June, which can be found below. The band's publicist also commented:

"Cold World are a truly unique hardcore band from Wilkes-Barre, PA. After becoming one of the most talked about bands from their area, Cold World released the 'Ice Grillz' CD/7" EP on Lockin' Out Records in 2005. Touring worldwide in support of that release, Cold World cemented their reputation as one of the best bands in contemporary hardcore in only a years time.

"In late 2006, Cold World and Deathwish joined forces. Summer 2007 saw Cold World release their 'No Omega' CD/DVD, a collection of rare recordings through the 1917 label. In 2008, Cold World completed 'Dedicated To Babies Who Came Feet First,' on Deathwish Inc., which tells a chilling real life tale of struggle in the world as we know it today.

"From the opening bounce of 'Boom Bye Bye' it's apparent that Cold World's musical grit and power have risen to new levels to tell that story. This artistic progression is reinforced as the album unfolds. When the title track 'Dedicated...' explodes forth (featuring guest vocals by George of Blacklisted), it's clear that the band have crafted an unforgettable hardcore anthem. While standouts 'Roaches And Rats' and 'Whagwan (Featuring Warrior Queen)' combine a bleak lyrical commentary, hip-hop character, and hardcore intensity as only Cold World can. And with 'Do The Knowledge' and 'Time To Break Down' Cold World pay homage to longtime influences Life Of Agony andBiohazard, weaving together polished melodic vocal hooks and metal/crossover heaviness.

"Check out the full Cold World tour routing below, with Backtrack (Reaper Records), Dead EndPath (Triple B Records), and Expire (Bridge Nine Records) in tow."
