Interview with Stephen Brodsky on The Bostonist - Cave In Ends Hiatus

"Metalheads, punks, and Boston music fans rejoiced last week at the announcement that local metalcore quartet Cave In are ending their hiatus with a new EP and a little gig at Great Scott on July 19th. Word quickly spread throughout the Internets about the "reunion" [as an aside, Bostonist would like to note that the band never broke up, and reunions are usually the result of a break up], and the band issued a little statement on their Myspace:

"After 3 1/2 long years, Cave In has decided to end its hiatus. Please join us for an EP release show at Great Scott's (1222 Commonwealth Ave., Allston, MA) on Sunday, July 19th @ 9PM. Also playing will be our friends Disappearer and Phantom Glue. Copies of the "Planets Of Old" limited 12" (recorded by Adam Taylor, Alex Hartman & Johnny Northrup @ Camp St. Studio) from Hydra Head Records will be available that night."

Needless to say, the show is sold out. Though Cave In were never on the cover of Rolling Stone or seen carrying loads of Grammys in their first go-around, in the few years that they've been hiatus their fan-base has only grown as blogs, magazines, and inspired musicians across the world have dedicated wistful words in the group's honor.

Still, it's all a bit of a surprise for the band, as frontman Stephen Brodsky tells Bostonist. In an exclusive interview, Brodsky answers a few questions that have been on Bostonist's mind since last weeks announcement.

Bostonist: What was the key element that's ended the Cave In hiatus? Did the four of you guys decide to start practicing together again, or was it one person's persistence, or something else?..."
