Boston legends Cave In make a highly anticipated return with their Relapse Records debut, Heavy Pendulum, their first full studio record in over a decade. Today, Cave In share the newest single “Reckoning” with an accompanying band performance video. “Reckoning” is the first Cave In song to be fully written by guitarist Adam McGrath.

McGrath comments:  “‘Reckoning’ started as a demo I sent to the band for consideration while mapping out the track list for Heavy Pendulum. It was inspired by the idea of adding a song to the acoustic/electric live sets Steve and I had been performing on and off for the last 20 years. A fresh song with that set-up (acoustic/electric guitar) seemed exciting to pursue. Somewhere between Led Zeppelin’s ‘Battle of Evermore’ and Mad Season’s ‘Long Gone Day’ is the birth of ‘Reckoning,’ a song about digesting huge loss and forging paths into unknown futures.”

Additionally, Cave In announce headline tour dates throughout the Summer and Fall. Cave In will tour the United States from July 21-Aug 06 with support from label mates Author & PunisherCave In will also tour throughout Europe & the United Kingdom in October with support from Stake. A full tour schedule is available below.

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 and in true CAVE IN fashion, ahead of the mainstream.

Heavy Pendulum is out May 20 on DLX 2xLP/2xLP/CD/CS/Digital. Physical pre-orders are available via AT THIS LOCATION. Digital Downloads/Streaming HERE.

CAVE IN (Stephen Brodsky – Guitar/Vocals, Adam McGrath – Guitar/Vocals, John-Robert Conners – Drums) sees a revival following the addition of Nate Newton (Converge, Doomriders, Old Man Gloom) on bass and vocals.
