On April 13, 2023 the band Cold brought their Year of the Spider tour to Nashville, Tennessee’s iconic Basement East venue. Supporting acts for the tour included Divide The Fall, Sygnal To Noise, and Awake For Days who sadly was not able to make the show due to transportation issues. Fans were ready for what was in store and you could feel the electricity rising as it began to get closer and closer for this iconic band to perform.
American rock band Cold formed in 1986 out of Jacksonville, Florida. After being together for twenty years, they decided to take a break and resumed making music in 2009. Vocalist, Scooter Ward, made it very clear how much he advocates for mental health, as well as how he supports his fans during their good and bad times. As he spoke during the show, he told us stories about how much music and performed truly saved him, how thankful he is that people allow them to play around the world, and even told us stories about musicians he has met that have sadly passed. As you look across the crowd you could see fans smiling, singing, and one in particular holding up a neon green sign on the front row that says ” Your Music Saved Me In 2003.” Ward’s demeanor and stage presence is not easily matched, his kind and humble attitude shows truly how much he not only cares for his fans, but also his love for music. With six studio albums released this far, the most recent being in 2019 titled The Things We Can’t Stop, more are anticipated to potentially release in the future. During their 19 song set on Thursday they performed several favorite hits including “Stupid Girl,” “Suffocate,” “Remedy,” “Just Got Wicked,” and closed out with “Wasted Years.” With just over 700k monthly listeners on Spotify, its pretty safe to say we are very glad this band decided to get back together.
The 20th anniversary tour of Year of the Spider began March 17th in Syracuse, New York and will hit several major cities including Philadelphia, Orlando, Atlanta, and will close out on May 28th in Cleveland, Ohio. There is still plenty of time to catch this once in a lifetime show, click Here for more details on where you can see them next.
