Everything Goes Cold is an industrial band from California. Their lead singer, Eric Gottesman, is notable as a founding member of Industrial Metal band Psyclon Nine, and a live musician with Ayria, Caustic, XP8, Unter Null, and a number of other industrial bands. Everything Goes Cold has released one full-length album to date, 2009's vs. General Failure (Bit Riot Records,) as well as a remix EP and several digital singles.[1] vs. General Failure met with critical acclaim within the industrial music community.[2][3] The album featured guest appearances from Daniel Myer and other industrial luminaries, as well as production by Ted Phelps of Imperative Reaction.

In 2011, Everything Goes Cold completed a major US tour with Aesthetic Perfection and Faderhead,[4] and were featured at Festival Kinetik in Montreal.[5] The band had previously toured regionally with Babyland and Hanzel und Gretyl.

Numerous remixes by Everything Goes Cold have been released, including mixes for 16volt,[6] Terrorfakt,[7] and Ayria.[8] Everything Goes Cold itself has, in turn, been remixed by Dismantled, Hate Dept., SAM, and many more. One of only three remixes ever completed by defunct Los Angeles cult sensation Babyland was for Everything Goes Cold.[9]

The next Everything Goes Cold release appeared in February 2012 on Metropolis Records.[10] It is an EP entitled The Tyrant Sun,[11] and features an appearance by I:Scintilla's Britanny Bindrim and a remix by Cubanate's Phil Barry.[12]

The band embarks on a full North American tour with Imperative Reaction in October 2012.[13]
