Caves are a great energetic pop punk band from Bristol, UK. Last year, they posted mp3s from their first seven inch on the Fest MessageBoard and those songs really grabbed my attention. The band is fun, passionate and really remind me a lot of the defunct Discount. When I saw them at the Fest 9, they did not disappoint and were amongst the best sets that I saw that weekend.
Since last year, Caves has been a busy band. They have combined the songs from their first 7″ and split 10″ into a Collection CD. They have also recorded their first full length, titled Homeward Bound, which was just released on vinyl by YoYo Records on and on CD by Specialist Subject. From what I hear the album will make it to the states through the No Idea distro.
This summer, Caves will be touring the UK with the Richmond band Sundials. In fall, they will be crossing the Atlantic for the Fest 10, which is where I’ll be sure to be seeing them again.
