Old Man Gloom’s New Album Will Include Tracks From Late Bassist Caleb Scofield

Old Man Gloom drummer Santos Montano has confirmed that late bassist Caleb Scofield will be featured on the band’s upcoming album. He said the following about that on the “This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours Podcast“:

“We have a bunch of songs that Caleb wrote coming on this record. And some of them are even tracks that he did multi-tracks at home, just on an iPad. And so we’re gonna be including those songs on this album.”

“…Caleb‘s wife was generous enough to give us the iPad and let us take all the stuff off of it and there were 15 songs on there.”

Old Man Gloom Have Finished Recording Half Of Their New Album

Old Man Gloom have finished recording the first half of their new album. If all goes according to plan, the second half will be completed later this summer. The effort will be the band’s first since the tragic death of Caleb Scofield.

The group commented:

“The travel day away from my Gloom family is always tough, but today feels very bittersweet. We had an amazing week with Matt Bayles recording half of our new record, including a song Caleb and I wrote many many years ago and never finished.

It still amazes me that 20 years on we still find so much joy in each other’s company, and we still laugh out loud with excitement at the music that comes out of us. Although Steve and Matt are new to the gloom fold, the comfort and output was instantaneous, and we are all working to honor Caleb in everything we do.

Not having Nate there was tough, and very sad, but that’s adulthood. We’ll be in God City with him and Kurt later in the summer to finish this thing, and I can’t wait for you all to hear it. There are more surprises to come.

All the love in the world to my brothers in Gloom, and all of you! #calebscofield”
