About Cave In

Like many bands that emerged from the fertile New England metal scene in the ’90s, Cave In excel at combining various shades of aggression, including punishing post-hardcore, punk, and rock. The group formed in 1995 in Methuen, MA, around a lineup that featured guitarist/vocalist Stephen Brodsky (who eventually took over lead singer duties), guitarist Adam McGrath, and drummer JR Conners. After releasing a metalcore-influenced 1998 debut album, Until Your Heart Stops, Cave In expanded their sound on 2000's Jupiter to explore emo prog and space rock. A major-label record deal followed, as did 2003's shoegaze-tinted Antenna, which was successful enough to lead to a European tour opening for Muse and Foo Fighters. The band went on hiatus in 2006 but returned in 2009 and have been active ever since, albeit with a slower recording pace. Most notably, Cave In signed to Relapse Records for 2022's sludgier Heavy Pendulum, a nod back to their heavy-metal roots.
