SoCal punk trio Girl Tears have been playing grimy and heavy punk rock for three years. This October, they're releasing their sophomore album Woke Against the Tide, which is sure to be packed to the brim with tight riffing and emotive vocals. If you want a taste, look no further than new song "Cold Thoughts," premiering right here for you. It's the kind of cool chaos you'd want from a modern punk band — noise and effects clutter the first section of the track, guitars and bass slowly building up to a stable rhythm. Then it all comes together, creating a full sonic assault of high-paced frenzy. This jam is loud and confident, dragging your ears into a pit of excitement and energy in under two and a half minutes.
