On April 4th Cold Cave will release their second album, Cherish The Light Years. Recorded with Chris Coady in New York City, the record is a tour de force of pounding synths and soaring romantic melody. Bandleader Wesley Eisolde has taken Cold Cave worlds beyond 2008's Love Comes Close with a massive, ambitious love letter to his adopted city. 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.
