interview by : Jessica Jewell
Cold Cave, the music of Wesley Eisold, has taken a strong foothold as part of the new sound of the goth/industrial scene. With Eisold’s roots in the hardcore scene as vocalist of the hardcore bands Give Up the Ghost (formerly American Nightmare) and Some Girls, Cold Cave has blown up since it’s debut, earning accolades from press and the fans alike. Eisold’s voluminous, haunting vocals resonate over tracks laden with electronic melodies and penetrating rhythms creating a sound that seems to seamlessly blend postpunk, synthpop, darkwave, noise, goth, and industrial. Having recently wrapped up the “Meaningful Life” tour, which took Cold Cave through the US, to European metropolises, and all the way to the remote heights of Kathmandu, and releasing three new singles in 2013, Oceans with No End, God Made the World, and Black Boots, Cold Cave is not letting up anytime soon. The band is on the move again with another global tour, this time supported by Douglas J. McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb and Gary Numan, and Eisold is toiling over a new album slated for 2014.
