Caveman Announce Spring Headline Tour + Fat Possum Release CoCo Beware on 3/27
Debut Album CoCo Beware sees release on Fat Possum Records on March 27th
After a successful past year where Caveman signed on with Fat Possum Records and sold out their first headlining show at Bowery Ballroom, the band sets out on a Spring tour through North America, starting in Chapel Hill on March 6th, including stops in Georgia, Florida, Austin’s SXSW, Toronto, and the Midwest, before ending at Los Angeles’ Echo. Their debut CoCo Beware will get a wide release on March 27th via Fat Possum after the self-release on the band’s Magic Man! label last year.
In 2011, Caveman garnered critical praise for their debut album CoCo Beware from outlets like NPR, The New York Times, and The Fader, and for their big-sounding, impressive and completely unforgettable live shows alike. The band shines live, noted by NPR as their #7 live show of 2011 HERE and after touring with Here We Go Magic and The War On Drugs, Cavemanwill be heading to Europe for the first time next week, before embarking on their North American tour.

Caveman is made up of five proud New York natives: lead singer/songwriter Matt Iwanusa, who also adds percussion and drums to the band on record and live on stage, Guitarist Jimmy “Cobra” Carbonetti, who designs his hand-made Cobra Guitars from scratch, drummer and native Manhattanite Stefan Marolachakis, bassist Jeff Berrall, and Sam Hopkins on synths. Caveman’s 10 song debut CoCo Bewareis produced by Nick Stumpf (French Kicks) and shows front man Matt Iwanusa‘s ability to craft melodies and lyrics which tackle topics of life and love, reflections on hope, joy as well as moody observations, all sung in grandiose four-part harmonies, wrapped in timeless melodies.
