We’ve been fans of Leeds’ four-piece Cold Summer for quite some time. We previously premiered their video for ‘A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire’ last month, and now as they closer to the release of ‘Fight To Survive,’ we’ve teamed up with the band once again to give you the exclusive first play of ‘Bear Eats Wolf’.
Like the bands previous material, ‘Bear Eats Wolf’ serves as another solid, tight knit slice of melodic post-hardcore with venom-filled vocals from Dan Feast dominating against tribal-like drums and stringent guitars.
Lyrically it touches on issues of anxiety and depression, especially the experieces of Feast. The band hopes listeners can relate to his experieces as it gives off a positive message about overcoming the negative state of mind often brought about when suffering from anxiety. Here’s what Dan had to say about the song:
“The wolf is a symbol of the negative state of mind, a powerful and determined animal that can’t be outrun and is hard to overcome, whereas the bear emphasises the strength that needs to be found to overcome the troubles caused by the wolf.”
Drummer Justin Eastwood also shared the following comments about the track:
“Musically its one of the "heavier tracks” on the EP. Beginning with an ethereal post-rock influenced introduction it leads to darker territory that reflects in the subject matter of the song.
‘Fight To Survive’ EP by Cold Summer is released on April 1st.
Pre-Orders are available now digitally for ‘Fight to Survive’. Fans will receive both singles ‘Bear Eats Wolf’ and ‘A Time Imagination Forgot To Inspire’ instantly.
