Cold Cave returns with their first new music since last Fall’s The Idea of Love picture disc 7”. Titled “Glory,” it is a bit of a departure from those songs; it’s a glossy track featuring sparkly synths and woeful vocals in Cold Cave’s signature chilly croon. The video, directed by Amy Lee, epitomizes cool with a minimal aesthetic and an artistic integrity that holds true. “Glory” is a hint at what is to come from Cold Cave in the near future.

Glory is now available to purchase and stream via Bandcamp & Spotify & Apple Music.

The Heartworm Store has also added new label and Cold Cave accessories, shirts, and more.

This Sunday, Cold Cave will kick off a string of stateside tour dates in Pomona, CA – with shows in Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit and Cleveland to follow – before heading to Europe to support The Jesus and Mary Chain. Cold Cave will play these shows with a full live band featuring Wesley Eisold, Amy Lee, Max G. Morton, Nils Bue and Ryan McMahon, marking a triumphant return to their full-live-band format.

I feel as if I‘ve been moving
For a year, trudging boxes sewn
Both empty and flooding. I hoped to
thread the black hole with no strings attached.

Tennessee said men like you get
A wolfish look in their starved eye.
I sneak some good in the reflection
Of those wearing sunglasses at night.

Peeking up skirts on bicycle seats,
As children they warned us that
Our faces would get stuck like that.
Sex is the training wheel still pedaled.

I don’t know why I keep my nose
in the dead dirt just because I
stepped on a rake once trying to smell
the infinite fields of sunflower.
