Into The Cold performs and records original conceptual music driven by anthemic riffs and layered female vocals based around compositions by Seattle recording artists Katy Cornell (Inflatable Soule, Going South) and William Stover (Going South, Mark Lanegan). These songs are further fleshed out with musicians Gene Devereaux, Denny Markopoulos, Keith Jaeger, Jason Rubin and supporting vocalists Kristen Halberg and Nikol Fiala. Live, this fills the stage with different facets of sound and people. The auditory effect is moody grunge partnered with haunting ethereal harmonies that are lyrically serious and musically heavy; a kind of Cocteau Twins meets Muse, Phantogram meets Black Sabbath, Sky Ferreira meets Pink Floyd. With all the heaviness, it makes sense that the album was recorded and engineered by Jack Endino at Soundhouse, then in the ITC Studios, in the Don Gunn studio, and mastered by Chris Hanzsek (CZ Records founder).
Songs for the eponymous debut concept album (released Summer 2015) are inspired by the paintings of artist Rebecca Miller. Rebecca’s art graces the album cover and liner notes.

I like this Seattle band… a lot!”
– Duff McKagan, twitter
“At times it’s heavy, at times eerie, lush, soft, with three part harmonies and keys but with rhythms and grooves that shake the listener… Simply put, they’re a great band.”
– Dave O’Leary, Northwest Music Scene
