MITCHELL & THE COLDHEARTS just launched their brand new website:
British Singer/songwriter MATT MITCHELL (PRIDE, FURYON, COLOUR OF NOISE)
has recently had the chance to embark on the journey of recording his
long awaited debut solo record ‘MATT MITCHELL & THE COLDHEARTS’.
MATT MITCHELL & THE COLDHEARTS is:
Matt Mitchell – Vocals & Guitars (PRIDE, FURYON, COLOUR OF NOISE)
Mauro Laconi – Guitars
Dom Ladd – Bass
Matt Cherry – Drums
Stevie Watts – Keyboards
MATT MITCHELL started out singing and writing songs in his late teens
learning his craft in several bands early on, he then found himself as
the voice of AOR band PRIDE who released two albums in the mid-2000s
on EMI TOSHIBA and POINT MUSIC.
FURYON was MATT MITCHELL’s next project. Formed out of the demise of
PRIDE a heavier style evolved, with much love and praise from The likes
of CLASSIC ROCK & METAL HAMMER magazines. FURYON had a great run touring
UK/Europe and performed at several major festivals including DOWNLOAD,
BLOODSTOCK and Poland’s gigantic WOODSTOCK festival. Not long after
the release of the second album the band was put on ice so that the band
members could spend more time songwriting and considering their future.
At this point, MATT MITCHELL joined LITTLE ANGELS guitarist BRUCE JOHN
DICKINSON forming the much lighter bluesy sounding COLOUR OF NOISE. A
good two-year run was had with the band. An album was released, followed
by lots of touring and yet more major festival slots.
COLOUR OF NOISE was to leave things on a high in 2017 and with one door
closing another soon opened in the shape of MATT MITCHELL’s solo project
with guest players – MATT MITCHELL & THE COLDHEARTS.
