Brooklyn synth/post-punk duo The Vacant Lots have released a Cold Cave remix of “Into The Depths“, originally lifted from their highly acclaimed third album Interzone, which is getting its second pressing via Fuzz Club Records, out on February 19th.
Released last Summer and long sold-out, the Interzone LP saw glowing praise from Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins (who played the band on their 6 Music and KCRW shows, respectively). Talking about the remix, Jared Artaud says: “It’s truly an honor to collaborate with Wesley Eisold. Not only is Cold Cave one of my favorite bands, but he’s one of my favorite poets. I can count on one hand the contemporary bands whose music I find inspiring. Cold Cave is the ultimate. It’s music that cuts through the bullshit and strikes the soul. Brian and I wanted to have just one remix to go with Interzone, and there was no one else we wanted to work with more than Cold Cave. I love what Wesley did to the track – pushing it to the extremes, into some insanely ordered chaos zone.”

“Interzone is like existing between two zones,” Jared says. “Interzone doesn’t mean one thing. It can mean different things to different people depending on their interpretation. Working on this album was a constant struggle reconciling internal conflicts with all that’s going on externally in the world. Interzone, in one word, is duality.” The second pressing comes on 180g ultra-clear vinyl with black splatter and includes the Cold Cave remix of “Into The Depths” as a bonus 7″.
