Cave In have announced a new album to be released June 7th via Hydra Head. Following the death of bassist Caleb Scofield in March 2018, Final Transmission will be the last album with Caleb, who appears on every track.

A month before his death, Scofield left a voicemail message on his bandmate’s phones which has now been used on the opening track. Guitarist Adam McGrath said “Hearing his voice fucks you up a little bit. We were surprised to get it from him, actually, but we thought it was great. And that was it. In a weird way, it’s the end of the story as far as our relationship together. I feel really lucky to have this record,” Adam continues. “I love it, but I don’t like listening to it. I’m sure I’ll listen to it eventually, but right now it’s difficult. Just hearing him play kills me. I’ll miss him forever.”

Guitarist/vocalist Steve Brodsky had this to say “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 him.” 

Check out All Illusion below, the lyrics for which were found in Caleb’s journal after his death. Adam explains “We used the lyrics for ‘All Illusion,’ which is a song that really haunts me. I feel like it’s a weird message from Caleb sometimes.”
