Cold Summer

Ralph's got a very short attention span of 15 seconds which he uses as a guide to picking music to feature on the blog. So when a new single drops in the kennel with a title as long as A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire it might just have missed the cut. However the track by Leeds outfit Cold Summer made the grade due to its burgeoning intro which grabs the attention from note one before daring you to stop listening with driving guitar, punchy drums and commanding vocal.

Cold Summer write experimental melodic rock with a twist that is developed through a wide range of influences. The end result being - "music which portrays a bitter-sweet ambience with angst and raw passion" from their punk and hardcore roots.






Formed in 2011 Cold Summer maintain a strong DIY work ethic, self-producing and releasing 2 EP's followed by a self-titled album in 2013. They also self-booked an album release tour and toured with US band He Is Legend in 2014. This kind of mentality ultimately led to support slots with diverse and established artists Funeral For A Friend, Polar, Self Defense Family, Lemuria, Milk Teeth, Brawlers and recently Grieved and Employed To Serve.
 

In 2015, the band worked hard on producing new material, culminating in the release of Fight To Survive. Their most refined and emotionally driven music to date, the record, in their words - "holds to right a world of consumption, greed and corruption. A call to arms for an apathetic generation."
