Cave In’s New Studio Album Coming Together, Collaborative Tour With Every Time I Die Hoped For


There hasn’t been too much news to report on Cave In‘s forthcoming seventh studio album as of late, but an interview recorded several months ago has shared some new details regarding it. That conversation involved Cave In guitarist Adam McGrath and Every Time I Die guitarist [and AEW professional wrestler] Andy Williams and was recorded for their involvement in the ‘Two Minutes To Late Night‘ ‘Splitsville‘ livestream series this past January.

That event found Cave In and Every Time I Die covering a song from each other, with those covers having recently been made available to the public here. This bonus conversation from that event has also now been made available online.

In it, Williams heaps some praise on Cave In, telling McGrath “you guys are the band that we look up to the most. I’m sorry I’m just like kissing your ass, but you guys have always been, collectively, our band’s favorite band.”

Speaking of covering each others material, Williams stated:

“Me and Nate [Newton, Cave In, etc. bassist] were texting after the show, like ‘Yo, after this there has to be an Every Time I Die/Cave In tour, where like we’re all on-stage with two drums and everything and play both songs’, it would just be the best.”

McGrath responded, “That would be the best, it really would. It would be cool, full circle, doing all these things later together, it really would.”

Later when asked whether or not Cave In were writing a new material, McGrath responded:

“We are writing a record. We did a session with Kurt [Ballou, producer/Converge guitarist], we have five songs recorded right now. We hope to have an hour and a half of music recorded by the spring, we’ve been truckin’ away with that. I see Steve [Brodsky, Cave In, etc. vocalist/guitarist] every two weeks, we do three-day hauls, then he goes back to New York. So we practice like three days in a row and then he goes back.

So we have another session Valentine’s Day weekend for three days and then we have another session scheduled in March, so we’re chipping away at a new record. I feel locked in with Cave In, more than since “Perfect Pitch Black“—that’s how locked in we are right now as far as like doing the band again, 100% locked in and focused, the most we’ve been in years. And it feels really good.”
