LEAD INTO GOLD
TWO FROM THE EYE
Born in 2012, COLD WAVES began as a memorial concert for fallen Chicago musician and sound man Jamie Duffy. The original event, a 14-band affair over a single night, served as a springboard to what is now a 2 day showcase at Metro. The effort made that first September evening to raise money for Jamie’s family, has now grown into a fundraiser for Hope for the Day, a local suicide prevention charity.
This year’s preliminary announcement showcases rarity and innovation in the world of industrial music: From the UK: GODFLESH, Justin Broaderick’s metal mammoth, and influential party starters POP WILL EAT ITSELF lead the charge, along with Canadian teutonic godfathers FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY. Australia’s avant garde electronic maestro’s SEVERED HEADS and Wax Trax! original recording artist LEAD INTO GOLD (featuring Paul Barker of Ministry and RevCo) grace a US stage for the first time in over 20 years. Finally, we are very proud to host a special performance from LUSTMORD, onetime member of SPK and a founder of the dark ambient genre.
