BIO: 

Born of Minneapolis in 2014, Cold Kingdom is a full-out, juggernaut hard rock band that dispenses a lethal combination of fury and sentiment, delivering emotional lyrics wrapped in an unbreakable hard rock casing.

Cold Kingdom brings an unfailing drive to play energy-filled shows every time they walk on stage, a quality that gets ever-rarer in today’s arena. In their years of performing live they've had the experience of playing with well-known acts such as Chevelle, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, and Nonpoint, as well as contributing to some of the Midwest’s largest music festivals, like Northern Invasion, RockFest and Summerfest. Their first released album, "The Moon and the Fool," brought their musical dreams roaring to life, with the singles "Crash Poet," "Let it Burn," and "Surrender" quickly becoming fan favorites. Their latest EP, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, further pushes their rock to an even greater creative edge.

More than just a band, this close-knit family is always looking forward to new challenges, new venues, and new fans, because that’s what it’s all about to Cold Kingdom: the fans. The Midwest is their home, but they’re excited to grow and make new friends all around the country, bringing their distinctive sound to all corners, both domestically and beyond. Cold Kingdom is also forever thankful to the friends, family, fans, bands and companies that so significantly contribute to their success.
