Zozobra Set To Release New Album

Zozobra, featuring Caleb Scofield (Cave In, Old Man Gloom), will be releasing a new album on July 22nd via Hydra Head Records. Titled "Bird Of Prey," the effort was engineered and mixed by Aaron Harris (of Isis), who also plays drums on the album. The band comments:

"'Bird Of Prey' will be out on Hydra Head Records July 22nd. Or at least that's what the contract says. If not, I'm sure our lawyers will have a field day shitting on the label's faces. This time it features Aaron Harris of Isis on the skins. Aaron also engineered and mixed the record. At only 10 grand a song you can't go wrong with that guy. Also, Mark [Thompson] told me to keep this brief but the record was going to be released under the name Heatseeker but it's not anymore, so if any of you heard about that just go ahead and forget it happened."

Cave In Still Inactive; Update On Band Members

Cave In currently has no plans to reconvene anytime soon. Regarding the band's status, guitarist Adam McGrath states the following:

"Cave In's members are all presently living in different places and focused on different things. When your together for over ten years you tend to want to stretch with out each other. We are still brothers and continue to support eachother in all our musical endeavors. I don't know when or how but we WILL cross paths again."

Meanwhile, McGrath has also offered updates regarding his bandmates:

"- Stove has a new record coming out in November on Hydra Head. Stephen Brodsky's Octave Museum is the perfect album to drift off into the 16 bit landscape of warp zone's, minus worlds and triforces.

- Caleb has recorded a new record with Santos Montano of OMG fame. Zozobra's "Harmonic Tremors" will see the light of day in the near future on Hydra Head as well. It is a new FRONTIER of heavy music that will blow all minds.

- JR has been bashing away his drums with Doomriders. RIDE OR DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He also has gone back to school to refine his computer hacking skills.

- Ben is currently on tour with the mighty Converge. The new record "No Heroes" is their most savage and ferocious work in years. Everyone reading this should go check out why Converge is presently the undisputed greatest American hardcore band.

-Myself (Adam)...I have recorded an album with my new band Clouds. The "Legendary Demo" was recorded last summer by Stove and will be out on Hydra Head in Feb 07."

Cave In To Record New Album This Summer

Having just returned home from dates in Japan, Cave In are now in a "temporary retirement from performing live." According to the band, "The Perfect Pitch Black batteries are well exhausted and it is now time to replace them with a fresh set." The group plans to regroup this summer to record a new album, the details of which have yet to disclosed. For now, Cave In has issued the following:

"There have been plenty of questions like 'What will [the album] sound like?' or 'Is it going to be fast?' and numerous declarations like 'I heard you guys are going hardcore again' and 'I wish you'd make something as good as (insert your favorite Cave In album here).' Our responses to those questions and others like them have been different each time we've been pressed to answer them. However, the entertainment value of those declarations and many more in similar nature will never decrease. Simply put, we find it grand to know that you're interested in what we're doing and in short, we can only abide by the guts of our limbs and our throats when the time comes for us to do so."

Doomriders Recruit Ex-Cave In Drummer

Drummer Chris Bevalaqua has amicably left Doomriders and has subsequently been replaced by former Cave In drummer, JR Connors. Here's a statement from the band:

"We have our ups and we have our downs. So let's start with the downs first.....Bev unfortunately had to leave the band. It's an amicable split and we are very sorry to see him go but we wish him all the best in his pursuits. Ladies and Gentlemen of the west coast will surely see him skating, surfing, drinking coffee, and walking around aimlessly looking for wireless Internet on a regular basis. Watch out. Bev's coming. We are very happy however to announce that the man who will be filling Bev's shoes is none other than JR Connors of Cave In fame. He's only been back from Berlin for two weeks and we already snatched him up much to the chagrin of his lovely wife. He's a MANIAC. He's learning our songs and doing a damn fine job of it I might add. We are very proud to welcome JR to the band and are positive he will up the ante quite a bit. Oh and his name is actually John. John Connors... like in terminator. How fucking cool is that?"
