A post listed on record label Matador's blog reads: "Cold Cave have canceled the remainder of their Midwest dates as they reconfigure their live setup ... The band will be resuming dates beginning March 6 at London's Engine Shed with the Editors. They hope to reschedule all canceled dates in the near future."
The brief hiatus won't begin until Saturday, but glancing over Cold Cave's touring schedule, they are pretty much booked throughout the rest of the spring. They'll be winding through the U.K. in March, playing the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in May then finishing out their European tour.
Wesley Eisold conceived Cold Cave as a solo project but has since added Dominick Fernow and a live backup band consisting of Guy Licata from Hercules and the Love Affair and Jennifer Clavin of Mika Miko. It's uncertain if the current backing members will be along for the duration of the tour and yet to be determined rescheduled dates.
Since last year's release of the infectious and dark-wavey 'Love Comes Close,' Cold Cave have garnered a lot of press including one of their songs being prominently featured in a Radio Shack commercial, which is the demarcation of a band heading into the mainstream. Eisold supposedly used instruments for the first time on the record, so maybe that's part of the snag he's run into. It remains unclear what exactly the band needs to reconfigure, but here's hoping they figure it out by the summer.
