The Cold Stares When You Bring A Horse To Water

Stateside blues rock band The Cold Stares  has released their latest single, ‘Horse To Water’, the first taste of what’s been described as “an exciting slate of new material” expected later this year due from Mascot Records.

The single emerges as a profound reflection on the band’s unexpected yet embraced connection to their Southern musical roots, delving deep into themes of resilience, redemption, and the enduring power of personal and musical legacy, all expressed through a contemporary lens.
“After touring the world the last few years, we kept getting the tag southern attached to our music in interviews and press,” recalled guitarist/vocalist Chris Tapp. “Being southern was never something we intentionally did or tried to interject, but since we had been labelled as such, I decided to write a series of songs that exemplified what that term meant to me. ‘Horse to Water’ is a tip of the hat to southern leaning blues rock bands like Bad Company and Skynyrd in the voice of who and where we are today as The Cold Stares.”

Since forming in 2012, The Cold Stares has built a reputation for their explosive live shows and the unique sound produced by Chris Tapp, Brian Mullins, and Bryce Klueh. The new single follows the critical acclaim of The Cold Stares’ most recent full-length album Voices, an exploration of the band’s evolving sound and line-up. It highlighted their ability to blend raw power with emotional depth, showcasing their expansion from a duo to a trio that captures a classic power trio sound. With ‘Horse To Water’, the band continues to explore new dimensions of their music, offering a fresh take on a genre that has influenced them in unexpected ways.
