    Cold in Berlin announce their new album The Comfort of Loss and Dust will be released on 4th May by Candlelight Records. 10 tracks of unprecedented scope and power, recorded at Gun Factory Studios, London and Mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Sunn O))) and Electric Wizard).
    A black mass of doomy punk rock awaits the listener, fired by the Gothic imaginings of vocalist/lyricist Maya. With its dark soundscapes spun in haunting imagery and a feeling of the uncanny, The Comfort of Loss and Dust plays like the aural accompaniment to a Hermann Hesse nightmare. The down-tuned guitars and powerful drums create a tide of sound; carrying Maya's vocals as she twists and writhes through the murky waters of love, loss and bone-shaking lust.

    “The album travels. We draw from diverse, supernatural landscapes. From the Yorkshire Moors to the barren beauty of Iceland, from India to the Catacombs beneath Paris. All share a similar mystery - and for me, are tied up with some form of loss. I think the listener will travel with us.”

    The record’s centrepiece is the seven-minute Mysterious Spells - a post-mortem of youthful abandonment and a terrifying journey into the miasma of our current malaise. Electricity crackles, Tibetan singing bowls ring and prayers are offered as the band completes its metamorphosis into a new kind of audible beast, Cold in Berlin at their darkest, heaviest and shin-shattering best.

    “With this album, definition is difficult but pain resonates throughout; the powerful sound of survival,” - Maya.

    Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album Give Me Walls (2010, Cargo) and the 2012 follow up And Yet, this release will be the bands’ second on pioneering independent label Candlelight Records.

    Since forming in 2010, London-based Cold in Berlin has played throughout Europe alongside some of the most revered alternative acts, graced major festival stages and won praise from influential publications including Q, Mojo, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Clash. Last year saw Cold in Berlin cement their position in the UK’s underground scene with a lauded appearance at Whitby Goth Weekend and a presence in the Terror and Wonder exhibition at the British Library.

lyrics

There are ghosts here I am sure
They whisper love songs through the floor boards
My dreams welcome him home
I won't stay here alone one day more
Sweet sweet dangerous love
Sweet sweet bone shaking lust
My sweet sweet writing's not enough
To save us this love one day more
Now there's ghosts around the bath tub
They itch and bitch they scratch and moan
There's a monster beneath my bed
I won't spend the night alone
Sweet Sweet dangerous love
Sweet Sweet bone shaking lust
Sweet Sweet writing's not enough
To save us this love one day more
Now the body in the bath tub
The bones they etch such sweet refrain
But the blood that stains the water
No longer warms my veins
Sweet Sweet dangerous love
Sweet Sweet bone shaking lust
Sweet Sweet bleeding's not enough
To save us this love one day more
