Listen: ‘Car Crash (In Progress)’ by Cold Summer

Heading back to Leeds for the cranking new rock act Cold Summer and their very impressive (and full of social commentary) new track Car Crash (In Progress). Echoing the best of Linkin Park with a chunky hook riff, this prog rockl outing is one helluva calling card for the band. It’s hard not to think these lyrics not only act as a response to Brexit but also as a defiant cry to the way much of the Western World lives…

It’s a cracker – check it out!

Collectively, Cold Summer are an energetic post-hardcore 4-piece from Wakefield / Leeds, writing experimental melodic rock with a twist that is developed through a wide range of influences between them.

The end result being music which portrays a bitter sweet ambience with angst and raw passion from their punk and hardcore roots.

Formed in late 2011 the band have seen their releases (despite being ‘under the radar’) meet critical acclaim, following the self release of two EP’s, ‘Transitions’ and ‘Wake’ during 2012 and their ‘Self Titled’ album in July 2013.

In addition to this band self booked a tour back in January 2014 to promote the album release as well as heading out in support of He Is Legend on their UK tour in October 2014.

The bands strong DIY ethic has been reflected in their relentless show & recording output. These contributing factors has resulted in a large and growing fan base across the North Of England,as a result of playing shows alongside well respected yet diverse bands such as: Funeral For A Friend, Polar, He Is Legend, Self Defense Family, Lemuria, Milk Teeth, Brawlers, Grieved & Employed To Serve

The band have completed recording of their follow up release with producer Mike Bennett (Empires Fade, The Eyes Of A Traitor, The Ocean Between Us) which is set for release early in 2016.
