It is in the heart of the Western region that the Cave Story emerge, a Caldonian trio – later promoted to quartet – that in 2016 arrived on national radios through the hand of the first LP “West”. Embraced by the guitars of the present, but with their ears on the punk of the past, they now publish “Punk Academics”, a dissertation absorbed by the DIY scene that cuts across the most extreme styles, but which is both suburban and jovial and it’s in this nostalgia for the anarchist songs of old that they travel. From the absolute anarchy of the Black Flag, to the afternoons surrounded by gray concrete on top of a skateboard with friends, moving through stretches of unavoidable rebellion, of exacerbated freedom, sweating from classic punk, however, without losing track of the progressive nuances and indie inclusions of the past. From the track “Punk Rock Academy” by Atom & His Package comes the new “Punk Academics”, and it’s here that Cave Story renews their vows of rock liberation, a new stage of rude guitars in unbridled cataracts.
As Cave Story returns to ZDB, “Punk Academics” is the manual to study and the lesson will culminate in their release party. Let’s celebrate!
