‘62’ (My Generation’s Falling Apart)‘s lyric video features caricatures of Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Nicola Sturgeon, Angela Merkel and… The Queen!
Hotly-tipped Aberdonian rockers, Cold Years, have returned with their most important release yet – new single ‘62’ (My Generation’s Falling Apart), is a rallying cry to the 62% of Scotland who voted remain and are forced to leave the EU. It’s also a rallying cry to others in the world affected by the opportunistic people in power, who are willing to disunite communities and nations for their own personal gain.
Speaking of the song, Ross Gordon (Vocals/Guitar) says, “With ’62‘, we are venting frustration at how bleak things are right now. Our generation is spiraling out of control because there’s no real future for us to look forward to. Our country has been torn in half. 62% of Scotland voted to remain in the EU and we don’t want our country dragged out by any of those opportunistic morons who are tearing apart a nation. We have never been a political band, but I just don’t think we could have stood by and said nothing.”
Ahead of the release of ‘62‘, the quartet have sent letters to the Tory MP’s who voted to enable a no-deal Brexit against their constituent’s wishes, as well as local and national journalists and UK political commentators.
To celebrate the release of ’62’, Cold Years have teamed up with Drygate Brewery, for a special collaboration beer, coming in at a fitting 6.2%!
