Cumbrian punks COLT 45 release their new EP ‘Snakes & Ladders’ today on Visible Noise Records – to celebrate, they’re now streaming the record in full after a premiere with Punktastic.com earlier this week.
The EP is available to purchase digitally on iTunes and on CD through Amazonnow, with Rock Sound magazine hailing the record as “simple yet brilliant…a straightforward, soaring delight.‘Snakes & Ladders’ may only be six songs, but there’s a whole lot of fun nestled within them. Luckily, for a band who sing “What you see is what you get”, this EP follows suit: familiar stories woven into catchy and euphoric punk-tinged brilliance.”
In other news, the band have also just been announced for several festivals, including Camden Rocks and Rebellion Fests plus a brace of smaller local events around Cumbria, including their EP launch show at local Mecca and music venue The Brickyard on 29th April 2016.
Recently winning national plaudits from the likes of Kerrang! Magazine, Rock Sound, Big Cheese Magazine, BBC Radio One and more, COLT 45 are a testament to the phrase “substance over style”. Merging heartfelt, small-town frustration with melodic punk anthems and contagious hooks, the trio have worked their way up from the bottom by gigging relentlessly.
Having recently toured Germany for the first time and completing further UK tours with The Computers and subsequently FAUX, the band are now gathering an impressive set of notches on the touring and festival posts, with more live dates and further new material in the works for 2016.
