Cold Kingdom has been through a few lineup changes in the years that I have been following them, but the latest involved a lead singer change. They kept the change a mystery for quite some time, but once they announced the new singer and their new full length album “Into The Black Sky”, they have been touring as hard as they ever had. Their latest round of stops brings them back to The What’s Up Lounge on July 11th. I’m looking forward to hearing the live version of the songs after listening to the digital copy of the new album quite a few times through.
Born of Minneapolis in 2014, Cold Kingdom is a full-out, juggernaut hard rock band that dispenses a lethal combination of fury and sentiment, delivering emotional lyrics wrapped in an unbreakable hard rock casing.
Cold Kingdom brings an unfailing drive to play energy-filled shows every time they walk on stage, a quality that gets ever-rarer in today’s arena. In their years of performing live they’ve had the experience of touring the west coast in support of Shinedown and opening for acts such as Chevelle, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd, and Nonpoint, as well as contributing to some of the Midwest’s largest music festivals, including Northern Invasion, RockFest, Summerfest, Moondance Jam, and Halfway Jam. Their first released album, “The Moon and the Fool,” brought their musical dreams roaring to life, with the singles “Crash Poet,” “Let it Burn,” and “Surrender” quickly becoming fan favorites. Their eponymous EP, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, further pushed their rock to an even greater creative edge with songs like “The Break” and “Perfect Chambers”. Their long-awaited full length album release for 2019 represents a creative outpouring for the band, with “A New Disaster” leading the charge.
Adding to the already great show is another Twin Cities band, VIA and KrashKarma which has been a fun performance in the past!
