Cave In announce new record, Heavy Pendulum, out on May 20th via Relapse Records
The legendary Cave In are about to make their highly anticipated return with their upcoming seventh record, Heavy Pendulum, which is also the band’s first record with Relapse Records. Produced by Kurt Ballou at God City, Heavy Pendulum showcases everything that has long established Cave In as one of the best contemporary rock, hardcore and metal bands since their monumental 1998 debut, Until Your Heart Stops. From the driving tracks such as crushing opener “New Reality” to the metallic edge of “Blood Spiller”, Heavy Pendulum sees Cave In look back at their discography and capture their most memorable, visceral and forward-thinking moments to create a record that is all at once familiar, but also ahead of the mainstream, in true Cave In fashiom. Guitarist/Vocalist Stephen Brodsky comments, “Cave In’s been around for over 25 years now, and the time has come for an album that scales all of our creative peaks. Talk about a wild and weird ride! And here we are with “Heavy Pendulum” – it certainly feels like a remarkable event, given the erratic trajectory of our band. “New Reality” was always the lead-off track – that was pretty obvious during the writing process. New line-up, new label, new album… a new reality indeed, and it all adds up to a new lease on life for Cave In”. Below this article you can watch the video for the aforementioned “New Reality”, the first single off of the new record.
Heavy Pendulum will be released on May 20th via Relapse Records. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
