Caveman announce new album and 30 date Spring tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2012 by E.N.

Tour Will Run Through SXSW, LA 3/28 and end at Webster Hall on 4/10

Caveman_PhilipDiFioreA lot has gone down in the year and a half since the men of Caveman released their debut album CoCo Beware, much of it out on the road. They played through a blackout in Dallas as a tornado tore the power lines down, hunted for crop circles in middle America, and saw first-hand the place where aliens landed in New Mexico. They visited the castles of seaside France and got lost in London more than once.

When a group goes through all that together, they’re bound to grow as a team. What’s more, while all of this was going on, each of the band’s members happened to be undergoing significant changes in his own personal life. All of this combined to produce the band’s follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album CoCo Beware, slated for release this Spring on Fat Possum Records.

Fat Possum is an independent label home to an illustrious roster including The Black Keys, Band of Horses, Wavves, Yuck, Spiritualized, The Walkmen, Smith WesternsLissie, etc.

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 Carbonetti Instruments from scratch, drummer and native Manhattanite Stefan Marolachakis, bassist Jeff Berrall, and Sam Hopkinson synths.
