COLD CAVE ANNOUNCE ‘YOU & ME & INFINITY’ EP + NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Cold Cave have announced a 4-song E.P. You & Me & Infinity, due out June 1st - digitally and on 10” picture disc - from Heartworm Press.  On this release, Cold Cave continue to perfect their own brand of dark synth pop that manages to sound retro and futuristic at the same time. You & Me & Infinity features four romantic existential anthems for the disenchanted daydreamers, including the previously released, glimmering pop tune “Glory.”

Today, Cold Cave have unveiled a music video for the EP’s second single and title track, which is streaming below.

Mixed by Chris Coady and mastered by Bob Weston, this EP's release coincides with Cold Cave’s freshly announced 2018 North American tour.  Featuring support from Black Marble and Choir Boy, the tour will span the course of a month and will showcase Cold Cave performing as a full live band featuring Wes Eisold, Amy Lee, Nils Blue and Ryan McMahon.  All dates are listed below, and tickets will be on sale this Friday, April 13th.

THE SOFT MOON PREMIERE NEW VIDEO FOR 'GIVE SOMETHING'

Black Moth Super Rainbow shares new single, 'Baby's In the Void', Release Tour Dates


Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Panic Blooms, the latest disorienting dystopian masterpiece from the experimental pop arsonists that haunt the black-leaved Pennsylvania woods.

For the last decade, BMSR and frontman TOBACCO have explored the periphery of evil and extreme color, alternating between absurdly bright beauty and the slashed throat sinister. A sound impossible to replicate, as though it burst fully formed from a paisley-painted fire hydrant stationed in hell. They combine the aesthetically gorgeous with the hideously ugly to create a psychedelic uneasiness usually only seen in old oil paintings. What if Goya or Bosch made ravaged vocoder pop? Or a neo-impressionist painter committed himself to creating slow woozy earworms so iridian and vivid you’d think he sliced off an ear in the process.



We know scarcely anything personal about BMSR frontman TOBACCO. There’s his government name, Tom Fec. A few photos if you want to Google, most of them in a mask. He’s done enough interviews where he patiently breaks down the creative process and the ideas espoused, but has mostly resisted the soul-snuffing admissions expected from contemporary musicians. In that vein, he’s closer to a Boards of Canada, DOOM, or Aphex Twin—periodically visible but opaque—emotional but unwilling to exploit the self-mythology and cult that cropped up around him.

BOY HARSHER TO REISSUE PREVIOUS LPS VIA OWN NEW LABEL NUDE CLUB


With a new album in the pipeline for later this year, Northampton, Massachusetts duo BOY HARSHER are reissuing their two sold out 12”s via their own new record label, Nude Club. ‘Lesser Man’ and ‘Yr Body Is Nothing’ will be re-released on April 27th, with a new two-track 12” ‘Pain II’ to follow on May 11th.

Since 2014, Boy Harsher have built something of a cult following for their gritty, beat-led darkwave, consistently selling out live dates and racking up nearly 2 million YouTube plays for underground hit “Pain”.

Now, as they prepare to play SXSW followed by an extensive US tour with The Soft Moon, these 12”s will be made available again. They have also shared a remix of “Pain” by The Soft Moon, which will be included on both the new extended edition of ‘Lesser Man’ as well as the ‘Pain II’ vinyl - details of each release & format below.

THE DAMNED RELEASE 2 NEW SINGLES, NEW ALBUM "EVIL SPIRITS' IN APRIL

Following a hugely successful UK tour which saw British punk legends The Damned rev up 2018 by playing to over 23,000 rabid fans, including two back-to-back sold-out London shows, the band return this month with a double A side single available to stream/download now at Spotify.

Culled from their forthcoming ‘Evil Spirits’ album, released April 13th via Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records, the single features the tracks Look Left and Devil In Disguise two songs that perfectly represent the albums many shifting moods and styles.

‘Look Left’ is The Damned at their most epic and grandiose; a sweeping sugar-coated mind-grenade, addressing post-millennial society’s “media-induced coma” over lush vocal melodies and show tune theatrics. Written by drummer Pinch as a love song to the human race, the lush balladry holds a heavy lyrical theme within. “While everybody's looking left, what the hell is happening right? Tough subject matter is easier to digest when coated in honey rather than vinegar and the message in this song is so important, I couldn’t risk it being a throw away aggro punk tune that was immediately overlooked,” explains Pinch. “The future is here, and until you awaken your mind, I’ll wait for you.”
