Cave In full-length delayed, new EP confirmed

Friday, April 5, 2002 8:19 AM PT

The pre-production for Cave In's next full-length and RCA Records debut has been delayed. They were originally planning to start pre-production in April, but due to delays in the recording of Chris Cornell's vocals for the post-Rage Against The Machine project (which Cornell ironically left last month), Cave In must wait a little longer. As it stands now, the full-length probably won't be released until late-2002 or early 2003. Given the situation, they have now decided to go ahead with the Hydra Head Records EP we told you about several weeks ago. Since the band's arrival home from their European tour, they've written a handful of new songs, and they are looking to record about four or five of these for the EP. At this time they have not selected an engineer for the recording, but it will be out this Summer on both CD and vinyl, and according to the band, it will sound "quite different from what we plan on releasing on our next official album." While in rehearsal, the band has also been polishing and demoing new versions of their repertoire, including make-overs of tracks such as "Breath of Water" (now shortened), "Lost In The Air" (with some new James Brown drum breaks), "Inspire", "Joy Opposites", "Woodwork", "Seafrost", "Mouth In A Roam", and "Day Trader." In related news, the band announced their final Boston-show until this Summer:
