The Cold Stares release their new album Heavy Shoes Out on Mascot Records August 13, 2021
Pre-order the CD, Gold Vinyl and limited T-Shirt now!
Dirty fuzzed-up rock and roll meets blues, garage, desert rock and a Southern Gothic sensibility, visualising the music sitting alongside contemporary artists such as Mark Lanegan, Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Angels and The Dead Weather perhaps – bands that have the blues/blues-rock template but go darker or heavier with it. Sombre storytelling is etched into their songs with unflinching honesty. For Chris Tapp and Brian Mullins, authenticity is their hallmark.
Their story alone would be enough for a drama series – cancer, suicide, betrayal, divorce, loss, self-identity crisis, survival, and ancestral skeletons. Write about what you know, they say. There's a richness running through the songs with dark, multi-layered narratives that course through every twist and turn.
Most of the album was recorded in a single day at Sam Phillips fabled recording studio in Memphis, and the Memphis vibe has seeped deep into the record. Mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers) and mastered by Andy Vandette (Beastie Boys/Smashing Pumpkins), Heavy Shoes is their heaviest record yet. The incredible cover art was created by Corey Booth (Rick & Morty).
