- New CD Nearing Completion
Omaha-based hard rock band Cold Steel is in the studio, mastering their upcoming CD "The Odds Are Against Us" for a late spring 2011 release.
The band has been working on the 10-track CD for months with producer Curtis Grubb (Grasshopper Takeover). Sneak previews of the songs in progress have been released by Cold Steel via their Facebook and Twitter pages and the feedback has been tremendous.
The track order for "The Odds Are Against Us" is being finalized, and the band is in pre-production on a music video for their first single from the CD, "Fallin'".
Special "fan-only" releases are being prepared as well, along with some special, intimate concert performances for VIPs and fans (details TBA).
- Cold Steel's "Forgotten Tragedy" Added To Rock Band Network For Gameplay
Omaha-based hard rock band Cold Steel has just added their song, "Forgotten Tragedy", to the Rock Band Network for gameplay on the XBox360.
"Forgotten Tragedy", a song from Cold Steel's October 2009 EP "See You Again", was produced by Grammy-nominated Tom Tatman (Stone Sour) and was charted by Rhythm Authors for play in Rock Band 2.
"We're really honored to have our song added to the Rock Band Network, and couldn't be happier with the results", said Cold Steel lead singer Alex DiBaise. "There are already videos of people across the U.S. playing the track. It's pretty amazing, and from what I understand it's pretty challenging to play, too."
Drummer Gage McClain added, "Rhythm Authors did a terrific job in bringing our music to the Rock Band Network. They were so professional and great to work with, we had a blast."
"Forgotten Tragedy" can be downloaded at http://www.rockband.com/songs/UGC_5003176 on the XBox360 platform for Rock Band 2.
Cold Steel is currently in the studio working on a new full-length CD. The band can be found online at http://www.facebook.com/coldsteelband and at http://www.youtube.com/coldsteeltv.
