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.
