“Cold Hard Love” is a track taken from DUCKWALK CHUCK ‘s album “Fired Up” due for re-release on June 17th, 2022 via Wormholedeath .
The riff and music was provided by Arild Rettore and the lyrics penned by Arvid Thorsen. It’s (another) tune about hooking up and having a good time, nothing more or less. It was also the first tune recorded to feature Tord Eiken on the drums. Shortly after he joined, we wanted some material out there with him playing, and recorded CHL aswell as Nothing Left. CHL is a faster rocker than NL, so we got a hold of Sondre O. Michaelsen to shoot a video for us. CHL is a stayer on the setlist, as it kicks extra hard live!
The re-release of their latest album “Fired Up” will include 2 additional tracks “Cold Hard Love” & “Nothing Left”.
Fired Up is probably somewhat more varied in its expression musically than the previous releases from the band. The quality of the production has also got a massive boost, compared to the 2017 release of “High Speed City”.
The album cover art was once again done by the amazing Ole Andre Hauge, who has done a phenomenal job! With countless references to the band’s history; where the cover is also a continuation from the cover art of «High Speed city». They worked with Producer and technician Bjørn Erik Sørensen at Artbeat Studio. Bjørn Erik ones again did an awesome job to push the band both musically and sonically. Which has really given the sound and expression of this album an incredible boost with loads of punch.
So let`s get this party kickstarted with the re-release Fired Up through WormHoleDeath! Go stream it, buy it, share it, fondle it – whatever your heart desires; just do it LOUD!
