Cold Cave announce European tour

| On 04, Mar 2011

To celebrate the release of new album Cherish The Light Years (out April 4th), Cold Cave have confirmed they will return to Europe at the tail-end of March to play a series of UK and mainland European shows. The tour will see a newly revitalised live line-up, with a full-band set-up, fronted as ever by Wesley Eisold (formerly of Some Girls and Give Up The Ghost).

The Spring tour dates are as follows:


29th – Start The Bus, Bristol

30th – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds

31st – Stereo, Glasgow


1st – Ruby Lounge, Manchester

2nd – Ifor Bach, Cardiff

5th – The Lexington, London (The Quietus Night)

6th – De Kreun, Kortrijk

9th – Jack Daniels, Barcelona

The second full-length release since joining Matador Records (third album overall), Cherish The Light Years, bandleader Wesley Eisold has taken Cold Cave worlds beyond 2008′s Love Comes Close with a massive, ambitious love letter to his adopted city, New York. With Eisold’s newfound vocal strength fully to the fore on every track, Cherish The Light Years is a remarkable progression.

Other players on the album include long-time Cold Cave associates Dominick Fernow on electronics and Jennifer Clavin on backing vocal and synthesizer, plus Tonie Joy (Moss Icon), Nick Zinner(Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Sean Martin (ex-Hatebreed) on guitars, Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw, Head Automatica) on bass and guitar, Matt Sweeney on bass and Gae Licata on drums. Several of these will be joining Eisold on the road as the touring band, with other players to be announced.
