..and the darkness bangs! (up to the big north)

They’re just back from a cathartic tour in north Europe. 12 hours to chill out in London, now Cold In Berlin are ready to drive up to the north for more violence. York, Leeds, Preston and Sheffield are the lucky places enjoying those howling wolves noisy sounds this week.

On Monday 5th March 2012 Cold In Berlin released their new single ‘…And The Darkness Bangs’ / ‘The Lie’.
Late 2011 on a diet of Electric Wizard, Sonic Youth and Swans, 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.

here’s what the press is saying:

“To be honest it is difficult to give this performance the review it deserves in any words besides those which follow: Cold in Berlin MUST be seen live”
Dominion Magazine
“A full-on slam-out of sex and distortion that makes your head rock-out!” Indie Music news

and if this shouldn’t be enough to bring your legs and bellies  to their gigs, here’s live footage from recent show at Le Klub in Paris:
