“Cold Line” 7″ by Nots

NOTS, dropped a drum machine version of their single “Cold Line” which debuted recently. The 7″ is available this Friday on Goner Records and includes a flip side of NOTS’ re-imagination of The Normal’s “T.V.O.D.” – just a lil’ tease ahead of their upcoming full-length Cosmetic which is out next month.

Cosmetic fearlessly attacks the rough edges between desire, deceit, appearance and reality. The inevitable immersion in the constant news about the U.S. election was a huge influence for lyricist Natalie Hoffmann. Nots’ strenuous tour schedule and long drives pushed her to continuously write down reactions to life – good, bad and evil – along with the constant and “incredibly horrifying” flow of hate mongering and violence taking place.

In support of Cosmetic, NOTS have announced a full North American tour. Highlights include Chicago’s Riot Fest, Memphis’ Gonerfest, NYC, LA, SF and more – full list here:
