Legendary metalcore band Cave In is releasing their new album, 'Final Transmission on June 7th, on Hydra Head Industries. It was mixed by Andrew Schneider and mastered by James Plotkin, the album art was done by Aaron Turner of Isis fame. The album will feature the final recorded material by Caleb Scofield, who passed away in a car accident last year. Half the proceedings from the album will go to his family, so be sure to buy it besides listening to it on streaming services. The first single, 'All Illusion' was Caleb's only lyrical contribution to the record. Other than that, he played bass on six tracks and guitar on two. The album begins with a voice memo, that he sent to the band a month before his death.
Stephen Brodsky said the following about the album:
“I don’t think I’ve cried so much putting together any record, I’ve definitely felt like bursting into tears while I was working on things, but this was actual water being shed. I don’t try to look too deeply into how these things work, but these recordings are some of our last moments spending time with Caleb.
About the song 'Led to the Wolves', "Led To The Wolves is a Caleb song, It’s his composition and mostly his riffs. If you know White Silence, you can smell the fumes of that record on Led To The Wolves. And White Silence was heavily shaped by Caleb’s hand.”
And about 'Shake My Blood': “It’s a mix of extreme grief, frustration and anger. I was trying to do something to gain the clearest answer about whatever the next move might be. We worked on the lyrics together, and all three of us sing on that song – Adam’s (McGrath, guitar) doing the high harmonies and JR (drums) is doing the low harmonies.”
