Deemed by PLANET ROCK MAGAZINE as ‘The premium example of a modern classic rock singer’, MATT MITCHELL has been known as the voice of a few bands before carving out his solo journey under the moniker MATT MITCHELL & THE COLDHEARTS. AOR band PRIDE / Heavy Rock band FURYON and Blues Rock band COLOUR OF NOISE were all fronted by the British singer. With much appraisal from magazines CLASSIC ROCK / METAL HAMMER / FIREWORKS / POWERPLAY / THISISROCK and more, Mitchell has received a wide range of print and online press. BBC Radio 2 and Planet Rock are amongst the radio stations that have been championing Mitchell’s music.

Alongside playing shows in UK/Europe/Russia and South America Mitchell has performed at several major festivals including DOWNLOAD, BLOODSTOCK, STEELHOUSE, RAMBLIN MAN FAIR, HARD ROCK HELL, PLANET ROCKSTOCK and Poland’s gigantic POLISH WOODSTOCK festival.

In 2019 the debut COLDHEARTS Album was released when Mitchell and his collective ventured to the iconic ROCKFIELD STUDIOS in Wales where they recorded the debut featuring the popular single ‘Black Diamonds’.

It became very clear that a sophomore album would at some point appear and whilst the World went into lockdown Mitchell wrote and recorded new music with his band in the shape of ‘MISSION’.

The album was released in July 2022 and landed in the Official UK Rock Album Chart top 20! Coming in at #19

‘Mission (Ultimate Edition)’ is an extended version of the Official Charting album ‘Mission’ by Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts and consists of exclusive new edition artwork plus 6 extra tracks.

5 tracks are acoustic versions of and feature piano / acoustic guitars and cello.

The 6th extra track is a brand new song. The acoustics tracks were recorded in different sessions between 2018 and 2023. Some at ROCKFIELD STUDIOS, Brighton Studios and remotely. The acoustic tracks feature Stevie Watts on Piano ‘Dare You to Watch (Acoustic)’ and this one was recorded live at ROCKFIELD and features the iconic piano that was used on many great albums including QUEENS ‘BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY’.

Lydia Alonso also features on Cello ‘Wave Goodbye (Acoustic)’ and again a live version remotely recorded.

‘Mission (Acoustic)’ recorded by Mitchell in the studio in Brighton. As is the same for the bluesy slide guitar version of ‘Razor Tongue (Acoustic)’. ‘The Queen & I’ is a live studio recording by Mitchell and the song has only ever been aired at live acoustic performances. Written in the recent pandemic lockdown and gets its name from the fact that Mitchell shared a birthday with the late QUEEN ELIZABETH II.
