Leeds 4 piece Cold Summer are an energetic post-hardcore band, who write experimental melodic rock with a twist. Their music, blending a bitter sweet ambience with angst and raw passion, is a direct result of their punk and hardcore roots, and has seen them supporting Funeral For A Friend, Polar, and Defense Family, among others.
Cold Summer formed in 2011 and have maintained a strong DIY work ethic, self-releasing two EPs, ‘Transitions’, and ‘Wake’ in 2012, and a self-titled album in 2013. They spent 2015 working on new material, with their latest release, ‘Fight To Survive’, their most refined and anger-driven music to date.
Last Friday, 19th February Cold Summer released their latest single, ‘A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire’. An angst-ridden song, spitting out despair at the state of the world, “I’m not seeing a change”, it’s at once musically complex and yet eminently listenable. The raw – often screamed – vocals, further convey the feelings of angst and disappointment. Cold Summer don’t hold back on their opinions, and this is a good thing.
Cold Summer are Dan Feast on Vocals, Chris Harrison on Guitar, Chris Hepworth on Bass, and Justin Eastwood on Drums.
‘A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire’ is now available to download from Cold Summer’s Bandcamp site.
