Self Addiction, the debut single from industrial-rock act Common Man Down will be released Febuarary 15th, 2011 via Bit Riot Records. The 7 song digital single focuses on the arrangement, hooks, and nasty sound design of the original gritty dance-floor track Self Addiction. This release is just a sample of whats to come from CMD, their full length Self Bondage will drop later this year.

Common Man Down vocalist, Jordan Davis hand-picked artists whose styles span across the electronic genre. Everyone chosen to remix, rearrange, destroy, and manipulate were chosen for their distinct vision and ability to take Self Addiction in a unique direction that promises to please multiple crowds. Artists include Tom Napack (Vanity Police/Dangerous Muse) with an old-school/lofi/industrial vibe, there's a dubstep/dance rendering from Ryle, an energetic approach from Cyanotic, Orvtronixxx with a dark-electro hit, and Erektor with noise-induced crushing mayhem.

Also included on the single is a minimal, stripped down, electro perspective of the song by Common Man Down called "Relapse".

Self Addiction is set to be released on February 15th, 2011. Pre-order options are available now through Bit Riot Records at BitRiotMerch.com, including a discount on the single and a t-shirt purchase that gets you the single download in its entirety for FREE!

Interviewer P. James sits down with Mr. Barry to discuss his method, his years of self-exploration, and the rising of his new wave.

Q: Regarding the album title, it’s an extremely bold statement.

P. Barry: Yeah I know. You should see some of the emails and messages I got over the album title.

Read full interview Here.

With the power of six thousand tiny dogs gnawing feverishly at your shins while you drag the desiccated corpse of your once vibrant tap-dancing career out behind the old dumpster to shoot it repeatedly until it finally stops squirming, EVERYTHING GOES COLD have returned to once more vomit the soulless, hateful noise that they call music upon cities all across the United States. And also Canada.

Desperately clinging to the cuffs of the increasingly gnarled slacks of the much more popular and palatable bands AESTHETIC PERFECTION and FADERHEAD, EGC will bring their magical gift of song to the following locales:

* 4/23/11 Phoenix, AZ
* 4/25/11 San Antonio, TX

It'll be totally boss.

HELSINKI- Bavarian pretzel-fighters EVERYTHING GOES COLD have just been added to the bill for 2011's FESTIVAL KINETIK in Montreal.

Joining the ranks of clearly less important bands like Aesthetic Perfection, And One, The Klinik, and KMFDM, EGC will undoubtedly feel right at home in the barren wastelands of darkest Canada while the other bands huddle together around Steve Naghavi's undeniable charisma and unbridled sexuality for warmth. Industrial musicians, DJs, and fans from all over the world will slowly succumb to dread as toe after toe is lost to the grim specter of frostbite. Meanwhile, Everything Goes Cold will be in the hotel's unheated swimming pool, eating ice cream and listening to Vanilla Ice.

You can come hang out with us there if you want, but you should bring beer or something.

To summarize, in the words of a great man (well, DarkNES from the Gothsicles): "HOLY SHIT. We're playing Kinetik. That doesn't rhyme."

For the very first time, COVENANT comes to New Orleans, in what is sure to be a night that no one will forget!

Opening acts will feature Louisiana’s own Suicide Assyst, followed by Torrent Vaccine and DJ sets by Nanashi, Sneauxball and Saturnine!
