And, of course, we’re going to wrap up with the new track and video from Cave In, this one being for “Reckoning”. But that’s not all! They also have some live dates that unfortunately I won’t be able to catch. But you should! Anyway, Heavy Pendulum is out on May 20th through Relapse Records. Everyone at Nine Circles preordered it.
