Cave Bastard Premieres New Song "Hobocide"

Portland, Oregon-based DIY label Accident Prone Records will unveil a brutalizing new split between Austin, Texas’ Blk Ops (with ex-members of Kill The Client), and San Diego, California’s Cave Bastard (with ex-members of Cattle Decapitation and more).

After a song from the Blk Ops side previously came online, today we're stoked to premiere a brand new track from Cave Bastard's contribution to the split.

Check out "Hobocide" below, but maybe don't try to commit any on your own - Rutger Hauer taught us some of them have shotguns and aren't messing around!

Offers Cave Bastard of the brutalizing new single, “The name ‘Hobocide’ was actually created by a friend of mine fifteen years ago with no concept, except that it meant, ‘the killing of hobos/homeless.’ The lyrical inspiration came a couple of years ago when San Diego saw a string of murders among the homeless, many of which were committed by the local police. The song is written from the perspective of the killer, and dares to expose the listener to their own morals. Morbidity in art draws out the best and worst in us: those who are appalled by the lyrics do in fact have moral decency, and those whom agree with the lyrics ought to question their humanity.”

The Blk Ops / Cave Bastard split LP features more than twenty-five minutes of purely devastating grinding, explosive, and experimental mayhem from two underground acts, with four tracks by Blk Ops on the A-Side and four tracks from Cave Bastard on Side B. Enshrouded with cover art by Varises Otak, the record will see an initial LP run of 300 copies – 200 on black vinyl and 100 on blue/orange vinyl – as well as all digital platforms on August 25th.

Pre-orders are online here. Both bands are booking tour dates to take place in conjunction with the split LP's release. Cave Bastard is plotting a nine-city tour through the Southwestern U.S. states from August 24th through September 1st, with Blk Ops joining in on four of the shows.
