MORE GRACIAS Y MUCHOS GRACIAS
Cave In would like to send a warm, gooey and very cordial 'thank you' to the Foo Fighters and their crew for the great 2 weeks overseas last month. And to Mole, guitar-tech extraordinare and also to Steve "Trailer" Taylor for the being the mix monster. And a special growl from our tummies to Snack-Attack for the excellent soup selections!
NEW ALBUM NEWS
OK, let's make no farts about it here. The album is titled "Antenna" and it is tentatively being released sometime in early March (I know, we said otherwise, but the powers that be have thus waved their mighty hands and... well, the record comes out a bit later, duh). The first single from the album will be the song "Anchor" - a perky little three-minute head-bopper about librarians with ear infections. Is it just a New England thing, or could this actually spread? OK seriously, the video for the song "Anchor" will be directed by Dean Karr, who's best known for his amazing photography that has often appeared in the inner album sleeves of bands like Tool and also his videos with Marilyn Manson, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Matthews Band, Amen, lah lah lah etc. etc. He's good, we'll just leave it at that. Also, there will be a couple different versions of the single that you can buy... if that's, like, your thing man. One will have the actual music video with the song "Devil's Head Piñata". The other will have live versions of the songs "Stained Silver" and "Lift-Off". So yeah, just take your pick. Or both, if you're feeling extra consumer-like at the moment. The vinyl for the album WILL be released by Hydra Head, oh goodness! Thanks guys, we're just glad you don't hate our guts by now hah hah. And we'll hopefully have the LP version available a week or two BEFORE the CD version is officially released in stores.
2003 EUROPEAN TOUR
Yes, our second time around. This time we're ready for you! We've got extra wool hats, extra thermal underwear, more vitamins and nasal decongestants, and maybe a can of tomato soup or something - for emergency only. Anyway, go to the tour section (duh) to find an itinerary for this upcoming excursion.
FOR THE ENGLISH LATE-NIGHT TV WATCHERS
An 8-minute documentary edited together by the same fellow who did the "Dark Driving" video has been/will be shown on TV. We saw it one night during the last tour on Channel 4 and it really spooked us out. You can see us walking really late at night after playing Reading Festival, sort of lost and trying to find our hotel after our van broke down... there's also live footage from the show we taped at the Monarch in London last summer. Were you there?
