Cold Years have just dropped their brand new track ‘32‘, also revealing details about their upcoming third studio album ‘Goodbye To Misery’.
The Aberdeen rock trio dropped ’32’ on Friday (March 4) and tells the lyrical story of how it is possible to overcome hardship in your life, coming out of it a much stronger person. Vocalist Ross Gordon spoke of the meaning behind ’32’ saying; ‘This is our ‘fuck this, let’s just get out of here’ track and the track that best channels the message of the album. It’s about overcoming hardship and growing as a person – facing all of your fears and insecurities – and realising that you’re never alone in that. It’s over-the-top, it’s punk rock on steroids and we can’t wait to play it live.’
This is the fourth track to come from their upcoming album ‘Goodbye To Misery’, which is expected on April 22 via Inside Job/MNRK. Cold Years have also released ‘Headstone’, ‘Home’ and ‘Kicking and Screaming’ from the compilation, which is a follow up from their previous body of work ‘Paradise’ in 2020.
It has already been announced that ‘Goodbye To Misery’ is set to be a 12-track release, produced by Neil Kennedy (known for his work with bands like Boston Manor, Creeper and Milk Teeth). The album is focused around the concept of wanting a more positive future, away from the notorious Coronavirus pandemic; ‘This record is us saying you can break away from those things that are bringing you down. It’s about standing up for yourself and not letting anybody tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing. It’s a defiant statement.‘
Gordon continued; ‘It’s a fucking punk rock record. I couldn’t give a fuck what’s going to happen to me when I’m 65. You need to live life in the moment. You need to take chances. And that was something I was always scared to do. But I’m not scared anymore.’
