Cave In Members To Pay Tribute To The Late Caleb Scofield At 2018 Roadburn Festival

Cave In‘s Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath will be paying tribute to the late Caleb Scofield with a special performance at the 2018 Roadburn Festival. The set will take place on April 21 at the Het Patronaat in Tilburg, NET. Brodsky and McGrath commented:

“Please join us for an afternoon of Cave In songs and cover tunes dedicated to Caleb Scofield, our best friend and bandmate who passed away tragically and suddenly on March 28th, 2018. Sincere thanks to the good-hearted people of Roadburn for swiftly and gracefully giving us an opportunity to honor Caleb’s life and legacy.”

It’s one of our greatest joys at #Roadburn to be able to bring you special sets and exclusive collaborations over the course of the festival. Today we have one to announce that is presented with somewhat heavy hearts. On Saturday, 21 April, @stephenbrodsky and @adamcmcgrath will unite to play a very special set at Het Patronaat in honour of Caleb Scofield, their long time bandmate, collaborator and friend, who sadly passed away last month. The pair comment: “Please join us for an afternoon of Cave In songs and cover tunes dedicated to Caleb Scofield, our best friend and bandmate who passed away tragically and suddenly on March 28th, 2018. Sincere thanks to the good-hearted people of Roadburn for swiftly and gracefully giving us an opportunity to honor Caleb’s life and legacy.” We, at Roadburn, are honoured to be able to host such a special tribute to Caleb – a musician who not only performed at Roadburn himself (as part of Old Man Gloom in 2014), but whose influence can be seen in many of the bands that pass through the festival. Please note that entrance will be on a first-come-first-served basis; doors will open at 12.30 and the performance will start at 1pm. #roadburnfestival #roadburn2018 @sonicdeathwall
