Cold In Berlin Unveil Single & Tour Dates

| On 12, Jan 2012

Late 2011 Cold In Berlin retreated into a studio which was the former home to a Mental Hospital. Buried deep in South East London it straddled a nearby Cemetery and in a desolate site that was only occupied by squawking Ravens and the deeps woods that surrounded it they enlisted the help of producer James Aparicio (whose credits include Depeche Mode, Spiritualized, Grinderman and Liars) who helped sharpen their already visceral sound. This is where they produced AA single ‘…And The Darkness Bangs’ / ‘The Lie’


Shortly after this they supported Goth legends Diary of Dreams at the o2 Academy in London to which online tipsters AAA music remarked afterwards “This band is the best undiscovered secret and the record industry is going to have a bidding war over them”.


After the highly successful debut album ‘Give Me Walls’; London based No Wave/Punk whirlwind Cold In Berlin release their ‘White Horse’ EP which has been given the remix treatment by Producer Pete Baker, Witch House exponents Heretics and a heavy dub step makeover by Drum Cunt; which is possibly his last work in the UK now he has relocated to Japan. They also teamed up with the highly regarded Robot Elephant Records  to DJ alongside the label boss Sebastian Weikart and Jon the Goth for London’s only Witch House club night.


Live they offer an incendiary energy reminiscent of early grunge and even earlier no-wave, yet the noise they make is all their own. Creating delightfully sinister hooks that will bond your blood cells to the dark side then release them straight into your head with gloriously pounding crescendos, like Siouxsie Sioux smacking you in the face with a Mudhoney Record.
