About the Plague Poems Trilogy
Do we sing what we write or write what we sing? Mark Lanegan and Wesley Eisold come together to present words of dystopian desolation. Plague Poems is a collection of 23 poems written by each, for love - lost, losing, and even sometimes found. Written in February and March of 2020, the subconscious presents a narrative of love in the end of days. The second and third books in the triology are Year Zero- A World With No Flowers and Ghost Radio

About Deathbeds
After ten years, Deathbeds is finally available again as a paperback with the original cover.

Deathbeds was first released in 2007, compiling the lyrical content of Eisold's work in renowned bands American NightmareSome Girls and the beginning of his current moniker, Cold Cave. Along with tour journals, poems and prose of early fanzines, Deathbeds is the comprehensive work of an artist in their twenties trying to connect with the outside world and their discontent, confusion and the existential within. The book celebrates the beauty that is the struggle of depression and growth in a. poignant and foreword way that is rarely written down or documented coherently. These words came from a place of desperation and isolation but ended up inspiring others with how relatable not being able to relate is.

First published in 2007, Heartworm has sold over 10,000 copies of this cult collection between three paperback and three hardcover editions.
