Cold Years Release New Single, Endless
Aberdeen punx Cold Years have dropped a new single, Endless, which you can hear below. Rather than bang on about it ourselves, we’ll let frontman Ross Gordon explain what it’s all about:
“So the thing about records is that by the time your record comes out, the reality is that you’re already working on another one. The time-frame between hearing masters for the first time and records coming out can be 3-6 months minimum. I write constantly. Like all the time. I think taking a break is just an excuse for having writer’s block. So for us it’s important to just keep writing all the time.
“We are currently writing the follow up to Northern Blue and this song just sort of immediately jumped out at us in the practice room really. When Kerrang! approached us [for a feature in our Amped Up section of the mag, available today] we had to finish it, record it and get it all mixed and mastered within 7 days. We all work jobs so it was a lot of late nights, between rehearsing for tour and playing the AECC in Aberdeen for the Brewdog Annual Conference as well so it was real stressful, but also really fun.
“Endless was mixed and mastered by Neil Kennedy, who is incredible, and he worked on Northern Blue too. He just gives us the sound we all have in our heads. Louis [Craighead, bass] produced it all and without him we would have been so screwed. He’s such a natural, and it’s awesome to have a producer/engineer/best friend play in a band with you.
“From a lyrical perspective a lot has happened to me in the past 2 years since we wrote Northern Blue, and to be honest I wanted that to come through in the music. I’m in such a good place now and I think this song is actually pretty happy for a change!”
