Seasoned alt-rock five-piece Cold have teamed up with AltPress for the exclusive first look of their video “Run.”
The track, which was originally released by Snow Patrol on their 2003 album Final Straw, appeared on Cold’s 2019 record, The Things We Can’t Stop. The album was the quintet’s Napalm Records debut and their first release in nearly eight years. The reimagined track adds a somberness to the original score and was dedicated to Cold’s avid fanbase.
“I decided to record the song ‘Run’ as it’s always been one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands,” vocalist Scooter Ward says. “The song connected with me on a deep level while missing my family during our many tours and while making records. It will always be a beautifully perfect song to me.”
The video features highlights and never-before-seen footage from the group’s 2019 Broken Human tour that they wrapped up in November, as well as the bond they share with their fans.
“We’ve always had a close relationship with our fanbase,” Ward says. “With today’s social media communities as well as meeting fans and spending personal moments with them on tour, we stay connected to what they are saying and experiencing in everyday life. The Cold Army is our extended family who have been with us for decades now. We not only write songs for us but for them as well, with the intention that a song can hopefully help, heal and provide hope for someone.
“This year was our first tour in many years and reconnecting with the fans. Being close to them again meant the world to us,” Ward continues. “After the tour finished, I felt the need to create a compilation video to share some moments from the Broken Human tour for our fans abroad and the cities here in the states that we missed. And lastly to commemorate the memories for the people who were able to enjoy the shows with us and make the tour something beyond special to all of us in the band.”
