Cold was an American five-piece post-grunge/alternative metal band, based in Jacksonville, Florida. With the release of their studio album, Cold, in 1998, the band quickly became known for its angst-filled lyrics and vocalist Scooter Ward´s distinctive voice. On November 17, 2006, Ward announced on MySpace that, after a period of uncertainty since that February, the group had decided to disband.
According to a posting on the MySpace page of former Cold frontman Scooter Ward´s new project The Killer And The Star, the original members of Cold will reunite next year to record a new studio album, tentatively due in the fall of 2009. Cold will also release a collection of b-sides and other rarities early next year via Ward´s SonicStar label.
