Caleb and J.R. have been rehearsing with Greg Anderson and Pete Stahl of Goatsnake to help write new material. The two of them are virtually done with their tracks on the Cave In album, and Goatsnake absolutely rules... anyway, you can soon read more about this in the Recording Diaries.
We have confirmed two all-ages shows in California at the beginning of August! These will be 'warm-up' shows for our upcoming visit to Japan. This will be the first time we've performed live in the States since March of this year. It will also be the first time we play live after completing work on our new album. The dates are August 9th in Santa Barbara at The Living Room and August 10th in Anaheim at Chain Reaction.
The "Tides Of Tomorrow" EP, contrary to what we previously stated, will NOT be distributed through BMG Distribution. Lumberjack Distribution will be the sole distributor, as it has been with all previous Cave In releases on Hydra Head. The release date is still set for October 15th, 2002.
MORE U.S. APPEARANCES... WHEN?
As much as we have savored in travelling abroad, we're anxious to once again play the States. After a break in September, more U.S. tour dates will be announced in conjunction with the October release of "Tides of Tomorrow". We can't really say quite yet, but we may have the option of doing some really great opening slots for the fall... maybe a Crash Test Dummies worldwide re-union tour hah hah. As always, we'll post up further details as soon as the ink dries.
