"We've got a handful of shows set up around the Maritimes for the release of this album." commented vocalist and guitarists Scott Miller "Cavern hasn't played a lot of these places so it'll be great to get that music out to a whole new audience. The shows we have set up so far are all with Dumpster Mummy from Halifax, who are also releasing their album 'Life Compacter' in March. It's going to be a different experience for Scott Lilly and I, with us both playing 2 sets every night with Cavern and Anthesis. I'm really looking forward to getting out there and playing for people."

About Cavern

Cavern creates a unique sound of doom and sludge influenced grind that barely lets you breathe. The southern New Brunswick, Canada trio formed in early 2013 and put an immediate focus on writing and recording. The outcome is short bursts of aggression with a thunderous low end thanks to drummer Chuck Roherty and bassist/vocalist Scott Lilly. Guitarist/vocalist Scott Miller adds detuned noise and dissonance to the mix for a perfect blend of barely controlled chaos.

About Anthesis

Anthesis (formerly The Daisy Anthesis) originally started as an acoustic duo formed by guitarist/vocalist Scott Miller and bassist/vocalist Scott Lilly in 2004. Once they met drummer Andrew Martin in early 2006 they quickly burnt their acoustics and cranked their full stacks. Releasing their debut full length album "Surface and the Sky" on Diminished Fifth Records in 2010, Anthesis has evolved and been perfecting their groovy sludge/noise fusion without any restrictions.
