Aberdeen, Scotland's Cold Years are happy to announce that they will be releasing their new EP Northern Blue on March 2nd! To offer a preview of the record, the band has released a stream of the album's first single, "Miss You To Death." The band are currently on the road in the UK with Dearist until the end of the month which will mark the band's last shows for 2017.
Commenting on the evolution of their new material, front man Ross Gordon said, "Miss You To Death' was the second song we wrote for this record, and it just naturally felt like the lead single from the start. I remember sitting alone one night listening to Dire Straits self-titled record, and all these images of my childhood just flashed through my head. You know - things like playing pool with your dad on a Saturday night at like 5 years old, while that record is playing in the background."
Gordon went on to say, "It’s weird how you hold all these songs close to you, and they actually just take you back to specific moments in your life. I just thought 'Okay, how am I going to listen to this song 30 years from now if he’s not around?' That kind of set the tone for the whole of the new record. We really wanted to push ourselves as musicians, and I feel that we did that. Everyone had such a huge part in shaping this sound. It’s so much fun to play, and we can’t wait to play it live!"
