LABEL: HOPELESS RECORD
It’s not every day you come across a Japanese metal band signed to the iconic ‘Hopeless Records’ in the USA. Sitting comfortably alongside artists like Neck Deep and All Time Low, Japanese based Coldrain have earned their place among the prestigious roster that Hopeless Records has built up over the years. Coldrain’s upcoming release VENA is 11 tracks of pure hunger fuelled brilliance, from the epic lead single ‘Words Of The Youth’ to the ball busting ‘Runaway’ that features Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix. Imagine Linkin Park and KORN got together, had a baby and it evolved into a guitar wielding Pokémon. Want an album that will chew your ears off and then nurse you back to full health? Coldrain are your guys.
