Celebrated band to share the stage on some dates with Riki, SRSQ, and others will be with The Cult.
Cold Cave is the creative rebirth of acclaimed Musician and Writer Wesley Eisold. With an already prolific number of releases, Cold Cave has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of Darkwave and Synth-Pop, propelling Cold Cave to tours with Nine Inch Nails, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Sonic Youth, Echo and The Bunnymen, and Gary Numan. Cutting his teeth in legendary hardcore punk and noise bands American Nightmare and Some Girls, Eisold’s body of work has truly effected a generation of listeners. Through constant cross-pollination Eisold has gained mass appeal, influencing underground and popular culture with his ever evolving artistic vision.
A reluctant god of nihilism and despair, Eisold’s baritone is as rich and resonating as that of Morrissey, Nick Cave, or David Bowie, juxtaposed with the prophetic musings of his collaborator Amy Lee, stylistically they are heirs to the noir of The Velvet Underground, Joy Division, The Cure, and Depeche Mode, with the ideals of artistic minimalism reminiscent of the avant-garde. Marked by a pitch black aesthetic there is a light of hope in their brand of goth new wave. Eisold was born without his left hand, making his foray into electronic music and singing, the obvious path, situating him as a voice of adversity for the outsider. Cold Cave craft melodic synthscapes with jackhammer beats, songs celebrating the contradictory beauty of the human condition.
