COLD have selected Ben Grosse (FILTER, FUEL, SEVENDUST, ALTER BRIDGE) to mix their new album, "The Calm That Killed a Storm", tentatively due in May via Atlantic Records. The band are currently recording the CD with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (CHEVELLE, IGGY POP). Songtitles set to appear on the 11-track effort include "Back Home" (described by frontman Scooter Ward as "the story of a fallen star who needs to be taken home to remember who she is. And I'm the one taking her. It's beautiful."),"When Heaven's Not Far Away" (Scooter: "It's about dealing with a terminal illness. When the doctors diagnose you with something like that you start thinking a different way. You start asking questions to yourself like, 'Have I done everything right in my life? Am I good enough to get into heaven? Can you get lost on your way their or does an angel hold a sign with directions for everyone. Things like this."),and "When Angels Fly Away" (Scooter: "It's a song dedicated to people at war and their loved ones at home. It's very graphic and yet comforting at the same time. Sad but uplifting.").
Released in 2003, COLD's last album, "Year of the Spider", debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 500,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
