Entertainment One (eOne) and Aberdeen, Scotland-based rock quartet Cold Years are excited to announce the Friday, May 8 release of the band's highly anticipated debut album titled Paradise. As the true sound of worldwide youth disaffection post-Trump and post-Brexit, the songs of Paradise – a sarcastic snarl aimed at the band's remote hometown – burst from the speakers with a 'clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose' spirit. Springboarding off timelessly vintage-tinged sounds and fueled by lung-busting choruses buffed-up through a modern-day, blue-collar punk rock sheen, Paradise captures the anger and frustration vocalist Ross Gordon feels for a generation in decline. Watch the music video for the album's new single, “Night Like This,” on YouTube and stream it on all platforms.
