As they prepare for a large-scale North American tour and close out their second sold-out show at Hollywood Forever Cemetery tonight, COLD CAVE have unveiled a new single. Titled “Promised Land,” the track was mixed by Chris Coady and mastered by Bob Weston, and showcases COLD CAVE at the peak of their powers; propulsive, synth-heavy darkwave that marries vocalist Wes Eisold’s signature stormy croon with Amy Lee’s lustrous and shimmery timbre. Check out the enigmatic new music video directed by Travis Shinn and Jeremy Danger on YouTube.

“Promised Land” arrives after the April 2018 release of COLD CAVE’s acclaimed You & Me & Infinity EP. The band has eschewed the traditional LP release cycle by independently operating in an untraditional and DIY way by releasing singles and EP’s on their own terms. And with an already prolific number of releases, COLD CAVE has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of Darkwave and Synth Pop sub-genres. “Promised Land” continues to hint at what is to come from COLD CAVE in the future.

COLD CAVE vocalist Wes Eisold is celebrating his 20th year of touring and his body of work continues to reverberate throughout the subterranean arts scene and beyond. Eisold has gained mass appeal, influencing underground and popular culture with his ever evolving artistic vision. This has propelled the band to perform at world class museums The Getty and the Guggenheim, as well as performances with legends The Jesus and Mary Chain and Nine Inch Nails among others.

This weekend, COLD CAVE will embark on a North American tour and will play these shows with a full live band featuring Wes Eisold, Amy Lee, Nils Blue, Ryan McMahon and Anthony Anzaldo (Ceremony) marking a triumphant return to their full-live-band format. All dates are listed below, featuring support from Adult. and Vowws and also including a stop at Brooklyn Steel on March 4th with the legendary Psychic TV.
