Cold Beat, the current band from former Grass Widow singer, will be back with new album, Chaos By Invitation, out April 7 via her own Crime on the Moon label. Unlike previous album Into the Air, Lew made this one pretty much on her own and the record has a more intimate feel to it. The record also incorporates Lew's fascination with astronomy. The album art (above), created by Kevin McCarthy of Bay Area post-punk band Rank Xerox, was designed to be machine readable, just in case some interplanetary craft comes calling. Likewise, first single "62 Moons" make reference to Saturn while warm synths and pulsing bass worm into your ears. Listen to that, and check out the LP's tracklist, below.
