The Cold Stares' "Fire In The Sand" Catching Fire at Radio

Evansville, KY-based rock duo The Cold Stares have released “Fire in the Sand,” the lead single from their forthcoming sophomore album to mainstream radio. Produced by Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, P!nk), the independently-released single has impacted radio thanks to a groundswell of fan requests.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction of fans and at radio,” The Cold Stares’ Chris Tapp said. “Truthfully, it took off so quickly, it caught us a bit off guard. Radio seems to really be hungry for guitar-oriented music.” Tapp continues, “We’re extremely proud of our new album, and this grassroots support validates our hard work. The album with Mark has been a long time coming, and we are very excited to share it soon.” The Cold Stares will be on a promotional radio tour throughout August 2014.

“Think Queens of the Stone Age meets Zeppelin meets John Lee Hooker…This is blues-rock for the 21st century,” said Vintage Guitar.  Since 2008, duo of Chris Tapp (vocals, guitar) and Brian Mullins (drums) have been performing to packed clubs. “The first time I saw them,” Nashville’s Lightening 100 radio personality Dan Buckley said, “I thought they had at least two other musicians secretly behind the curtain. There’s just no way that sound comes from the two of them.”

The Huffington Post’s Radley Balko said of their live show, “Everyone in the room will have the same realization…the first time they see The Cold Stares live: These guys are better than the band you came to see.”
