Cold Sweat to release material to commemorate their Monsters of Rock Cruise Pre-Cruise reunion show
In an interview with Sleaze Roxx which will be posted in the near future, singer Roy Cathey (Cold Sweat, The Fifth, SteelCity) revealed that Cold Sweat will be releasing some material in the future to commemorate their reunion show at the Monsters of Rock Cruise Pre-Cruise Party that took place at the Magic City Casino on February 6, 2020.
In terms of what it was like to play the Cold Sweat reunion with his old bandmates consisting of guitarists Marc Ferrari and Erik Gamans, bassist Chris McLernon and drummer Anthony West, and whether there are any plans for the future including new material, Cathey advised:
“It was absolutely fantastic to share the stage with all my Cold Sweat brothers again. The reception we received was nothing short of amazing and being able to reconnect with the guys and with our fans from all over the world definitely rekindled our desire to perform together again. We are currently submitting for various festival appearances and have started to exchange demos amongst each other and discussing future releases. There is interest from one of the well-known labels that specialize in our genre of music, so from our one show on the Monsters of Rock Cruise, we got some pretty serious attention and for that, we are very grateful.”
In terms of how long that the new material has been in the works, Cathey indicated: “Yes! We have something very special in the works to commemorate our 2020 Monsters of Rock Cruise reunion show. The boys are exchanging ideas and we plan on letting things progress organically and without pressures. Everyone has businesses and personal lives to navigate as well. Let’s face it, we aren’t kids anymore and these things take planning. We have made no official plans or timetables but we have already received some label interest which of course we are thankful.”
With respect to the direction of the new material, Cathey stated: Well, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it I say. I believe we all know and understand what our fans want and expect from us and I don’t expect us to stray from that too much. Of course, on the other hand, a lot of time has passed since Breakout and we’ve all taken on different influences and characteristics in our styles and playing. If anything, I hope we are a bit more “edgy” but still with the great songwriting and hooks. Maybe a more melodic Skid Row type sound.”
Stay tuned for the interview with Roy Cathey, which will be posted on Sleaze Roxx in the near future.
