Aberdeen’s Cold Years have announced a UK headline tour for November and December. The five date run sees the band kick off in Newcastle, before shows in London, Bridgend and Birmingham, finishing up in their native Scotland at Edinburgh’s Mash House.

Speaking of the tour, the band say “It feels like forever we’ve had to wait to take these songs on the road and these intimate shows are the perfect setting for us to reconnect with a live audience. We’ve been working hard on making sure that these are going to be the best Cold Years shows yet and it’s super exciting to finally play a lot of the songs from Paradise, as well as some brand new songs live for the first time.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning, Wednesday 29th September at 10AM.

‘Headstone’ is the first new material from the band since the release of their debut album, ‘Paradise’ (Sept 2020), a sarcastic snarl aimed at the band’s remote hometown – that burst from the speakers with a ‘clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose’ spirit. Echoing the infamous, despairing “it’s shite being Scottish” rant made by protagonist Renton in Irvine Welsh’s 1993 novel, Trainspotting, The near-nihilistic take on the town where Gordon was born went further still, almost three decades and a generation later.

The album saw support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, SPIN, Rock Sound, Upset, Alt Press, NPR, American Songwriter, as well as Kerrang! who listed the album in their Top 50 of 2020.
