Cosmology is the second album by Rolo Tomassi, released on 24 May 2010. The album was supposed to be released on 19 April, but was pushed back by Hassle to 24 May 2010.[7] The band had begun recording demos for the record in the first week of October 2009 and wasted no time in getting to record the tracks professionally in Los Angeles during the 2nd and third weeks of the same month. The album was produced by Diplo.

B-sides for the album have been recorded and include "The Golden Ghost", which was released on 28 April via the "2010 Subs Club". "Party Wounds" is the A-side to this release.

"Party Wounds" was the first song from Cosmology to have a video.
