Our video of the week is from Sick Puppies for their song “You’re Going Down”
Their new album just came out this month and the band is currently on tour so check them out! You can also check out our recent interview with lead singer/guitarist Shimon Moore here.
With their first single “Champagne” off of their debut major label album “Bright Nights * Dark Days” Cavo has experienced some quick success, but getting to this point wasn’t an overnight affair for these guys. The band, together almost nine years, was rocking the St. Louis music scene long before hitting the airwaves with ‘Champagne.” None of it is taken for granted though, the band is relishing the moment and savoring each new opportunity that comes their way to share their music with the world.
The band went through a bit of a rebirth a few years ago when they lost one guitar player and bassist Brian Smith joined the band. The loss of one member allowed guitarist Chris Hobbs to take the lead role and really shine and the addition of Smith took the band’s sound to a whole new level. He gave them a shot of pure energy, a bit of new found aggression, and helped steer the band towards a more collaborative writing process where everyone is involved.
Currently rocking the second stage on the Crue Fest 2 tour the band jumped at the opportunity to get out there and reach out to new fans. Once Crue Fest 2 wraps up Cavo will be hooking up with Sick Puppies and Shinedown on the road and then on to an arena tour with Daughtry.
Lead singer Casey Walker recently took some time to talk to TWRY about their debut album, how he’s been inspired by Eddie Vedder as a musician, and the band’s next single!

Danish indie alternative rock sensation Mew played to a packed Paradise Rock Club last Saturday and had the whole place dancing. Despite some sound issues that seemed to swallow Bjerre’s vocals, Mew kept the concert alive and kicking. Helping to pull together the ethereal feel of their music was a projector screen depicting some otherworldly, trippy visuals. I was vaguely reminded of Nine Inch Nails shows by the escapism element of the show…you really felt like you were being transported to some mythical place, a not altogether wholesome place, but one with dark caves and valleys amidst the utopian landscape. Mew also brought to my mind the likes of Sigur Ros, New Order, and a mix of “The Neverending Story” and Guilllermo del Toro-style movie soundtracks. Adding to the feeling of concert astral projection was Bjerre’s unnerving, but captivating voice.
Color me surprised to find that Mew’s music translates over to the American audience. That’s not to put down their sound, by any means (in fact, I’d argue that American listeners need to be jangled out of their musical comfort zone as often as possible), but I feel that it likely startles some listeners that are used to the typical alternative music they hear on their radio stations. However, the venue was full of an interesting mix of both Americans and Danes. The latter group holding their home flag up like a pride banner and singing every single word along with Bjerre. Their energy, combined of course with Mew’s electric performance, fed the more reclusive crowd of concert-going Americans.
Mew is currently on tour with Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction in Europe alongside doing their own tour to promote their latest album: No More Stories/Are Told Today/I’m Sorry/They Washed Away//No More Stories/The World Is Grey/I’m Tired/Let’s Wash Away. I didn’t make that title up, I swear. Crazy album title aside, Mew can count me in as a new fan. I highly suggest that if you find Mew coming to your town this summer/fall that you get your butt in line for tickets on their musical voyage.
