Caveman announces nine brand new tour dates in September. The tour will be kicking off in Buffalo, NY at Ninth Ward on September 9th. Tickets are available now.
Caveman previously shared “River”, alongside a visualizer, the latest single off their upcoming LP, Smash, out August 13th via Fortune Tellers.
On the track, Matt Iwanusa of Caveman says “’River’ is mostly about how you survive when you have suffered a big loss; how to look at yourself and your actions moving forward. This song is about my cousin Ashley “smash” who we lost about 4 years ago. She was one of my best friends and sidekick in trouble-making all around NYC. She was one of the only people in the world who never judged me. Since she was my youngest cousin I felt like I had to protect her, but in the end, we protected each other. I miss her every day and this song coming out makes me think about the process it’s been to continue life without her and have the good memories continue to help me when I get down.”
Smash is the first new Caveman record since 2016’s “Otero War.” Much of it was composed just after the death of Iwanusa’s cousin – her nickname Smash becoming the album title and much of the music inspired by her.
