Cave In Announce New Zealand Headline Dates

Cave In Announce New Zealand Headline Dates

Chris Cudby / Tuesday 23rd April, 2024 11:00AM

An uncategorisable force in heavy music since emerging from Massachusetts nearly three decades ago, Cave In have adeptly straddled metalcore, psych / space-rock, sludge metal, post-grunge and furious thrash sonics across seven studio records thus far. Launching their new album Heavy Pendulum in 2022 via Relapse, co-founders Stephen Brodsky, Adam McGrath (not to be confused with Ōtautahi's The Eastern frontman) John-Robert Conners and recent recruit Nate Newton — picking up the mantle of vocalist / bassist Caleb Scofield, who passed away in 2018 — thrill local fans with the announcement of debut Aotearoa headline dates at Pōneke's Valhalla and Tāmaki's Whammy Bar this June. Achieving breakout success with their 2000's opus Jupiter and 2001's major label follow through Antenna, Cave In's newest record has provoked a rapt response, with The Guardian gushing "Heavy Pendulum is certainly the sound of a renewed band... an unapologetically fierce beast." Get amongst with the veteran four-piece this winter, brought to you by Destroy All Lines and Valhalla Touring..

Press release:

Formed in 1995 in Massachusetts by singer/guitarist Stephen Brodsky, CAVE IN was ahead of its time from the very beginning, helping to define the then-primitive metalcore genre with a more creatively elevated slant on their 1998 debut album Until Your Heart Stops. Not content to remain pigeonholed, the band veered into more accessible psychedelic ‘space rock’ sounds on subsequent releases before a brief hiatus in the mid 2000s.

After the tragic death of bassist/vocalist Caleb Schofield in 2018, Converge bassist Nate Newton picked up his friend’s instrument and the band was able to continue on its legacy, resulting in their seventh album - 2022’s Heavy Pendulum (Relapse Records) - a culmination of all the sounds the band had explored throughout their tenure and then some, with universal praise labelling it everything from sludge metal to post-grunge and even thrash.
