Well there’s a band we had pretty much forgotten ever existed. Back in the not-memorable nu-metal days, in ’88, Floridian band Cold put out a decent self-titled debut album that opened with a killer track called “Go Away.” In fairness, that was their peak. They never quit; four albums followed over the next couple of decades, but they have struggled to recapture the bright light that briefly burned back then. Maybe they’ll do it this time, with the new The Things We Can’t Stop album. Cold are playing two nights at the Viper Room to celebrate this sixth full length album, and their loyal fans will show up in support.

Cold plays with Awake for Days, University Drive, The Mendenhall Experiment (Tue only) and Skumlove (Wed only) at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5 and Wednesday, November 6 at the Viper Room.
