Superfiction is the fifth album by post-grunge band Cold. It was released on July 19, 2011 in the US and in the UK. This is Cold's first album since their reunion and six years since their previous release. There have been two singles from the album so far, including "Wicked World" and "American Dream". While touring the band announced that at every show they would be recording their new song "Snowblind" and that the best performance would be included as a hidden track on the new album, this however turned out to be untrue as the retail versions only contain the original twelve songs proposed for the release. "The Crossroads" was originally titled "My Religion" during Cold's live shows before the album's release.[4][5] "What Happens Now?" was written for a new Spider-Man movie and was initially titled "The Web". This is Cold's first album to be released on vinyl. It was the first album the band recorded as a four-piece since their 1998 debut, and their last album with bassist Jeremy Marshall before he left the band in November 2014.
