Greybeards Release New Single ‘Cold December’

“This band is more than just another rock act, it’s a labour of love.”-Powerplay Magazine

“Beards are cool…Greybeards are cooler.” Swedish rock band release new single this ‘Cold December’

2016 will be clearly marked down in the history books as one of the most turbulent years the music scene has ever faced, but GREYBEARDS intend to end the year on a positive note, with the release of their massive, intelligent, and loud as hell new single.

‘COLD DECEMBER (lyric video)’: 

Produced by Chips Kiesbye (The Hellacopters, Sator, Crucified Barbara, Bonafide) and aptly titled ‘Cold December’, the musical landscape on offer here will resonate with music fans who like their rock music modern, atmospheric, with an alternative vibe, and steroid infused pop licks.

With the lyrics reflecting on life’s hopes and dreams, setbacks and expectations, ‘Cold December’ takes a deep breath, remembering the iconic pioneers of music we have lost in recent times, and exhales with a heightened passion. This isn’t a group treading water, waiting for things to come their way… this is a band of brothers, who’ve quit their full-time careers, and are making things happen. “’Cold December’ is about a never-ending circle of trying to find happiness, while every mistake is biting your tail and forces you to run instead of just breathing”, says vocalist / guitarist, Ollie Westlund, “It’s a song in which our dynamic and emotional senses are driven to the breaking point, but where we really feel like we’ve found home.”

Hailing from Gävle in Sweden, Greybeards formed in 2012 with a simple mission statement, “to make the best music we can, and to tour the world.” With the four band members all just 22 years old, they’re living up to the hype that’s being bestowed on them. 2016 has seen the worldwide release of their debut album ‘Longing To Fly’, critically acclaimed reviews, and tours across the UK, Europe and China. Greybeards are already cementing themselves as a jaw-dropping live act.

A prelude to the band’s sophomore album (to be released in 2017, further news to follow), ‘Cold December’ is Greybeards best work to date, and is available to buy now via Attitude Recordings:

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
