The new Cavo EPK saw its premiere on Monday (11/14) on AlternativeAddiction.com http://www.alternativeaddiction.com/musicnews/article/2308/Casey-Walker-Talks-About-the-Cavo-Follow-Up. The storyline traces Cavo’s evolution over the past few years, and also features an Alternative Addiction exclusive interview with singer Casey Walker.
Cavo experienced an incredible measure of success with its debut, 2009’s Bright Nights Dark Days, which yielded the No. 1 hit “Champagne.” The band’s rise to the top of the charts and subsequent touring nearly tore them apart, leaving their relationships with each other and as a unit in shreds. After a brief break and careful examination of their friendships and motives, Cavo decided to soldier on together. Thick as Thieves is the band’s testament to their bond that was once broken and has now been rebuilt and even strengthened. The title track and first single showcases front man Casey Walker’s soaring vocals with a message furthering the notion that things are tighter than ever in the Cavo ranks.
