Minneapolis-based hard rock band COLD KINGDOM revealed the second sampling of new music from their upcoming as-yet-untitled album due this summer via oneRPM with the kinetic single “Agony” last Friday, May 13 across digital streaming platforms. The track is currently featured on Loudwire’s ‘Weekly Wire: Best New Rock + Metal Songs of the Week’ Spotify playlist. Today, May 19, the band have shared a black-and-white live performance-style music video for “Agony” which premiered this morning via YouTube. Stream/watch it below or at this link: https://onerpm.link/agony.

“The video for ‘Agony’ is focused on black-and-white footage with a raw, performance-based feel to it,” shares guitarist/founding member Evan Ogaard. “It utilizes the band performing the song in a small, enclosed space and includes full band shots as well as close-up shots of individual members. The room is completely dark save for a few spotlights and narrow beams of light all directed at the front of the band in order to enhance the feeling of claustrophobia and chaos.”

COLD KINGDOMElissa-Marie Ogaard (vocals), Evan Ogaard (guitar), Jason Michael (bass) and Chris Morley (drums)—made their debut Welcome To Rockville appearance for the festival’s kickoff ceremony last night (5/18) on the DWPresents stage alongside Steel Panther and Moon Tooth. The band have previously brought their “lethal combination of fury, rock and emotion” (Rock 94.5) to stages alongside the genre’s top acts including Shinedown, Chevelle, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd and Nonpoint and festivals including Northern Invasion, RockFest and Summerfest. A list of upcoming shows is below.

COLD KINGDOM premiered their anthemic radio single “Criminal” featuring Danny Case of From Ashes To New earlier this year via Outburn Magazine. The track is making its way up Billboard’s Active Mainstream Rock charts and is currently at #49. Stream it here: https://onerpm.link/criminal.

BAND ANNOUNCE ADDITIONAL SUMMER FESTIVAL DATES & SHOWS

Minneapolis-based hard rock outfit COLD KINGDOM are excited to share the second track “Agony” from their forthcoming third album due this summer via oneRPM. The fierce and rhythmically intense new single minces no words as it tackles the harmful effects of social media. “Agony” is out today across digital platforms at this link: https://onerpm.link/agony. An official music video for the track will premiere next Friday, May 20.

“‘Agony’ is an energetic and aggressive song that digs into how vile people can be on social media,” collectively shares COLD KINGDOM who are: Elissa-Marie Ogaard (vocals), Evan Ogaard (guitar), Jason Michael (bass) and Chris Morley (drums).“It’s far too often that people publicly project their negative opinions and judgements on one another, whether asked to or not, whether warranted or not. It’s so easy to hide behind a screen and present a one-sided narrative that shines a light on themselves while completely disrespecting someone else or their views.”

COLD KINGDOM launched their new album with the pulverizing debut single “Criminal” featuring Danny Case of From Ashes to New which Outburn Magazine described as “a lethal combination of fury and sentiment.” Watch the music video HERE. The track is currently at #49 on Billboard’s Active Rock radio charts.

The quartet have brought their energy-filled shows to stages across the U.S. alongside acts including Shinedown, Chevelle, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd and Nonpoint, in addition to festival appearances at Northern Invasion, RockFest, Summerfest and more. COLD KINGDOM will next appear performing the opening night of Welcome To Rockville on May 18 in Daytona Beach, FL and have a series of shows throughout the summer including festival stops at Moondance Jam (Bret Michaels, Candlebox) and Mile of Music Festival. Full dates are as follows:

5/18 Daytona Beach, Fl – Welcome To Rockville
5/21 Akron, OH – The Vortex
7/9 Omaha, NE – Slowdown
7/23 Walker, MN – Moondance Jam
8/5 Appleton, WI – Mile of Music Festival

Hard Rock Outfit COLD KINGDOM Release New Single “Criminal” Feat. Danny Case (From Ashes To New)

DT: FEBRUARY 28, 2022

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

HARD ROCK GROUP
COLD KINGDOM
RELEASE CRUSHING NEW SINGLE
“CRIMINAL” FEATURING DANNY CASE (FROM ASHES TO NEW)

MINNEAPOLIS BAND ANNOUNCE THIRD ALBUM
DUE IN SUMMER VIA ONERPM

Minneapolis-based hard rock outfit COLD KINGDOM have announced plans to release their as yet untitled third studio album this summer via oneRPM. The band previewed the album’s crushing debut single, “Criminal,” featuring guest vocals from Danny Case of From Ashes To New—which Outburn Magazine have lauded as “a lethal combination of fury and sentiment”—on Friday, February 25 across all streaming platforms. Stream it now HERE.

The quartet have shared a gripping music video for the track which can be seen streaming below or on YouTube HERE.

“It was really awesome to collaborate with Danny on ‘Criminal,’” stated COLD KINGDOM vocalist Elissa-Marie Ogaard. “His voice added an edge to the song that we were excited to hear. I think that he not only complemented my vocals, but also added a contrast that brought the song to a whole different level. We can’t wait to release it into the world.”

From Ashes To New vocalist Danny Case adds, “It was a pleasure working with Cold Kingdom. ‘Criminal’ is a powerful song with a soaring chorus that really keeps your attention from start to finish.”

“The pandemic really screwed a lot of things up for us, but it also gave us a lot of time to write,” relays COLD KINGDOM drummer Chris Morely. “‘Criminal’ was one of the first songs we wrote and recorded during the lockdown, and I believe it’s one of our strongest songs to date. The lockdown made us angry, annoyed, distraught, and we had so many other negative feelings. We just channeled all that into our writing and ended up with an album’s worth of material.”

 

COLD KINGDOM were formed in Minneapolis in 2014 and released their first full-length album The Moon and The Fool in 2015. It was followed by a self-titled EP produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass in 2017 and a second full-length record Into The Black Sky in 2019. When they aren’t writing or recording, the band has brought their energy-filled shows across the U.S. supporting genre leading acts such as Shinedown, Chevelle, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd and Nonpoint. They have also appeared on festival stages including Northern Invasion, RockFest, Summerfest, Moondance Jam and Halfway Jam.

COLD KINGDOM will next be seen live at a headlining show in Omaha, NE at Waiting Room Lounge on March 26 with further dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
