Cave In Just a Released a New 3-Song EP!
Cave In have released a new 3-song EP through Coextinction Recordings, and it’s available right now! Boom. Just like that. 100% of the proceeds of the EP — which is being sold for $3.99 — will be donated towards the recovery of Translator Audio, a Brooklyn recording studio destroyed by the floodwaters of Hurricane Sandy. A worthy cause indeed, seeing as the studio is owned by dudes that have recorded some of your favorite metal albums of all time.
Before you get too excited, these aren’t new Cave In songs; they’re demo versions of old songs that were recorded on a day-off while touring England and Ireland with Foo Fighters in 2002. “Dark Driving” was included on Cave In’s transitionary Tides of Tomorrow EP, while “Anchor” and “Joy Opposites” both landed on Antenna, the band’s major label debut with RCA that followed. A certain segment of Cave In fans probably won’t be interested, but these are some of my favorite songs the band ever released. It’s awesome to hear them in their nascent, although surprisingly quite polished, forms; the bass is louder throughout, the vocal melodies are a little different, and everything’s a little rougher. This EP is a must-have for Cave In fanboys like me.
Download the EP here. Is it really officially called Coextinction Release 13 as the MP3s are tagged? I guess so.
