So who are Coldside..

Coldside are an Urban/Rock outfit from Manchester and have been causing a rumble in their city and beyond. Most recently Coldside have been performing up and down the country and featuring on radio nationwide from BBC to Q The Music and many more. In April just gone Coldside’s latest song ‘Faded‘ was added to the BBC 1Xtra Playlist and available on the BBC 1Xtra introducing podcast.


In March of this year Coldside headlined their own sell out concert at Manchester O2 Academy 3, the next day performed at FrankFest with other acts including Badly Drawn Boy, Mark E Smith and the Fall, Bez(Happy Mondays) and many more. No strangers to performing they have supported acts like Bluey Robinson, Akala, Roll Deep and were the Main Support Act for Tinchy Stryder in Manchester this summer, in the same week performed at Rugby Rocks Festival 2012. Also the guys were crowned ‘BBC Band of the Week’ thanks to BBC Introducing and will be looking to perform at most of the bbc introducing showcases, including the introducing stage at Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds festival next year.


In 2011 Coldside were dubbed the best unsigned act in Manchester, in a competition held by Key103 and Manchester City FC, with judges from Sony RecordsKey103 and Cherry Lips PR.

Winning the competition, Coldside went on to perform at the City of Manchester Stadium 3 times, to a capacity crowd of 47,000.

  4. Every song they release has amazing beats and lyrics, and there live shows are something else, cant wait to see their next one

  5. I was lucky enough to perform at Man City Stadium & Manchester Academy 3 with these 3 infectiously ambitious lads. It didn’t take long for me to see how hard they work to achieve everything they have so far. I haven’t heard anyone better than these guys in Manchester and Coldside very much deserve to be recognised for what they are doing. Genius, quick witted lyrics that the young people of Manchester can relate to and their entertaining performances on stage are inspiring to watch.
    Keep up the good work, your time is coming! 🙂

  11. Bill Atchison

    These guys have a very promising future and a good cross section of music style too! Excellent performance at Wythenshawe Park on 29/07/2012 and really got the atmosphere going!

  12. Coldside are the next generation of music, everytime I see them live it’s always a different experience.. An inspiration to up and coming unsigned artists. I know they will go far with the right support

  13. Coldside are one of the best bands from manchester I have ever heared. Their songs are catchy and meaningfull! Seen them live a few times and they never dissapoint. The guys work hard,value their fans and keep you upsated with their journey! It wud be a shame to let amazing talent go to waste! They deserve to go far!!

  14. COLDSIDE, COLDSIDE, COLDSIDE!! These guys are the real deal. Big support from the U.S!

  15. Coldside are a brilliant music group that should be listened to by everyone.
    Whether you like one genre of music or another, these boys mix them up so you have a wide variety of themes to hear among their’ lyrical raps and emotive singing. As a result of their’ broad influences, their’ music will appeal to a vast range of audiences.

    Another fantastic trait these boys have is the will to collaborate their’ music with others.
    In doing so, they have produced some aw-inspiring tracks that will have you listen time after time, e.g. ‘D.S.M.L Ft Estelle’, ‘Oh My God Ft Labrinth’, ‘Poison Ft Samir & Andy Ellis’.

    Like many artists, the boys’ humor has also been integrated in a few of their songs, by means of applying parody/postmodernism, e.g. ‘Imagine Intro’ track in the album ‘Imagine’. In this piece, the boys recreate a dialogue from ‘Pulp Fiction’ whilst also injecting some advertisement of their work, making the whole thing to hear as a hole reminiscent and incredulously funny.

    I can’t stop playing their’ music, if anything I want to hear more! It’s inspiration for some of my artwork.
    It’s surprising they’re not among the attention of today’s popular youth music, e.g. Ed Sheeran, Sia, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta and so forth.

    If anyone deserves recognition for their’ talents, it’s the Coldside boys. They truly deserve it.

  16. 3 very talented lads iv seen them preform alot and sundays gig at wythenshawe in the park was spot on keep up the amazing work

  17. love these guys….. my hubbie gave me a cd and its on permanent repeat in the car, need to hear more from them please!! they are stars its a crying shame they are not better known but im sure the good news will spread like wild fire v soon 🙂

  18. Seen them quite a few times and always progressing and pushing the musical boundaries. Very talented lads who deserve every success. The comments above speak volumes about how highly rated these guys are without getting the recognition they truly deserve. Good luck for the future lads, big things will surely happen.
