In a supergroup-relevant superannouncement, the darkwave ducks of Cold Cave have shared that they’ll not only be touring with Divine Fits (members of Wolf Parade, Spoon and New Bomb Turks), but that they’re starting anew with a star-studded lineup.
Via handwritten note, CC main brain and freshly minted Los Angeleno Wes Eisold unveiled his new band: guitarist Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers), drummer London May (Danzig’s Samhain!), bassist Hunter Burgan (AFI) and noisenik David Scott Stone (LCD Soundsystem, the Melvins, No Age).
After a pair of West Coast warm-up dates in October, the five-piece will hit the road with the Fits. Upon returning in early November, they’ll enter the studio as a group to begin recording Cold Cave’s third LP. “Until then,” Eisold writes, “You can go anywhere you want.”
Former member Dominick Fernow is apparently prepping for a European tour under his Vatican Shadow alias.
