Billboard.com is reporting that COLD have commenced work on their fourth album, tentatively due next year via their new label, Atlantic.
At least eight songs are written for the new album, according to a post by COLD frontman Scooter Ward on the message board of the band's official web site. "You guys are gonna love the new shit," he enthuses. "It's a mixture of all the records' kinda vibe."
"This is a great band with exceptional musicianship, lyrical depth, emotional power, and real integrity," Atlantic Chairman/CEO Jason Flom said. "They have continued to evolve with each new album, and I believe that they have only scratched the surface of their true potential."
Released in 2003, COLD' last album, "Year of the Spider", debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 506,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
