The name itself means, A severe, immediate change in the weather.
Nothing could ring more true for this band. Originating in early 2000, ColdSnap was a melodic, post-hardcore band playing with the likes of Kittie and Adema, working the crowd into a frenzy with their heaviness and angst-ridden lyrics. ColdSnap has since evolved with a line-up change and a new sound. The singer, Chris, explained this best during a show.
We play honest, true-to-life music. Were out to make people think, and were out to make someone feel more than anger and angst. Weve all been through our share of life, and weve done it together, and we want people to listen and connect with that.
The four instrument players in ColdSnap have been through the last nearly 6 years, and the last 4 renditions of the band together, changing ever so slightly each time, forming new and beautiful music with each new change and each new day. The last ColdSnap ended after many months of in-fighting within the band. Afterwards, the four instrument players, (Kenny Guitars, Steve Drums, Jim Guitars, and Mark Bass) decided to give it another shot since their differences never made an inpact on the well-being of the band. After numerous auditions and writing sessions, ColdSnap found their perfect singer. Interestingly enough, Chris had been around the whole time, having known Kenny and Jim for over a decade.
After months of writing, ColdSnap is now ready to show the world their more honest side, with driving, sometimes ethereal guitar riffs, thumping bass, heart-felt lyrics, technically-adept drumming, and haunting vocal harmonies. The band has been a staple in the Albuquerque scene for upwards of five years, and theyre just now ready to show the world what theyre really capable of.
Years of playing music together combined with an overwhelming drive to succeed, the members of ColdSnap have, and will continue to presevere to accomplish the goal of touching as many people as possible with their music.
