EDITORS’ NOTES

Described by guitarist Brent Hinds as “dark, beautiful, spooky, funky, ethereal, melancholy music” that also “sounds like the Bee Gees a little bit”, Cold Dark Place finds the omnivorous hard rockers at their brooding best. Comprising unreleased material from sessions for 2014’s Once More ’Round the Sun and 2017’s Emperor of Sand, Cold Dark Place’s songs—all suite-like and multipart—touch on big-muscle power ballads (“Toe to Toes”), boggy Southern folk (“Cold Dark Place”), and yes, the Bee Gees, albeit in a thunderously bad mood (“Blue Walsh”).
