The aforementioned bonus live CD is expected to feature the audio of the same July 2009 show. “Planets Of Old” will see a January 26th release date via Hydra Head.
In even more news... Alternative Press recently interviewed Cave In's Steve Brodsky (much like EIS). Check out some excerpts below and read the entire interview HERE!!
[altpress.com] CAVE IN vocalist/guitarist STEVE BRODSKY just walked empty-handed out of a thrift store in the Allston section of Boston. "I was close to picking up a copy of Howard Stern's Private Parts," he says. "But I decided against it. I think I'll be okay." Brodsky may not have quite as much leisure time as he had even at this time last year. In July, he and other members of Cave In played together for the first time since going on hiatus in 2006, followed by a string of dates this past fall. Wedged in there, the band also managed to release the Planets Of Old EP--their first new material since their 2005 full-length, Perfect Pitch Black. Since the EP was originally only released on vinyl, it's being re-released in CD form this month on Hydra Head. While Cave In 2.0 may not be planning much in the way of touring, that doesn't mean they won't be busy. INTERVIEW by Tim Karan...
AP: When did the idea of you guys coming out of your hiatus first surface?
SB: It probably happened around the time that Caleb [Scofield, bass] felt as though he was settled back into living in New England, which wasn't actually that long after he moved back. It was only a couple months before we decided to just get together and play.
AP: Was that a difficult process?
SB: Well, ya know, we all have our own individual managers and lawyers, so Caleb's people got in touch with my people and they battled it out... nah, I'm just kidding. [Laughs.] No, it was pretty simple, actually. All it took was finding a day when we could all get together-which was relatively easy. There's a rehearsal space in Boston that Adam [McGrath, guitar] and I have been paying rent at consistently, but it was originally Cave In's rehearsal space that we pretty much just moved all of our gear into around 2001. Since that time, we found other bands and friends to share the rent on the space with. Fast forward nine years later and we're still occupying the same rehearsal space and using the same PA we used with [signing to] RCA money. [Laughs.] So it was pretty easy to figure out the logistics of where to actually get together and play.
AP: Over your hiatus, did you guys all ever actually get together in the same room and play?
SB: I don't believe it ever happened. We were at a couple weddings, but that was about it. No one asked us to get up and play. [Laughs.]
AP: The idea with the Planets Of Old EP was to record a few songs quickly so that you could release them right away, wasn't it?
SB: Yeah, in terms of the quickness that we recorded the songs, we knew we didn't want to spend a lot our time and money--more specifically: Hydra Head's money. That was one factor. The other factor is that we didn't really wanna make a big deal out of it. In the past, we've had more than a couple instances of spending far too long into making a recording. What are recordings, really? They're just little stamps in time, and I think some of the best ones are a little more fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants and already looking into the future beyond that. It was a good exercise for us to give ourselves a very strict amount of time to record and then move on.
