Cold Summer

Cold Summer are an energetic post-hardcore 4-piece from 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 late in 2011 the band have maintained a strong DIY work ethic, self producing/releasing 2 EP's: Transitions and Wake, in 2012 and a self titled album in 2013, they have also been responsible for self booking an album release tour and UK tour with US band He Is Legend in 2014.

This kind of mentality has ultimately led to support slots with diverse and established artists Funeral For A Friend, Polar, Self Defense Family, Lemuria, Milk Teeth, Brawlers, Zoax and recently Grieved, Employed To Serve and Sorority Noise.

In 2016 Cold Summer released Fight To Survive to critical acclaim and no small amount of airplay including Ralph's Indie Show playing A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire on Radio KC

Their most refined and emotionally driven music to date, the record holds to right a world of consumption, greed and corruption.

A call to arms for an apathetic generation.

Cold Summer are currently focused on writing a follow up to this release channeling the frustration of a uncertain future due to the  social and political events in the UK last year.

This year kicks off with Cold Summer releasing Waiting as a single in advance of their first live shows of the year. It's a tried and tested fans favourite that grabs you by the nuts from the first riff and doesn't let go until the frantic chant at the end. They're building a bridge between Alt Rock and Post Hardcore/Punk fans with this one. All things to all rockers. 

Needless to say Ralph's giving it a spin on the Radio KC Indie Show in the near (Sunday 5th March) future.

Sat 25th Feb: The Key Club, Leeds supporting Hellions & Acres

Thurs 9th March - The Hop, Wakefield - Headline show (support TBC)

Sun 28th may - King Street Crawl, Snooty Fox Club, Wakefiled
