Ticket Giveaway - Cavo - Stage AE - 8.28.12 - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Cavo will be making a stop performing at Stage AE next Tuesday, 8.28. Also on the bill is Evanescence, Chevelle, Halestorm and New Medicine on what is being called the 'Carnival of Madness Tour'. The St Louis based band is touring behind their new album Thick as Thieves, released this past April. The band has been active since 2001, releasing several LP and EP's. After going through a few lineup changes the band is tighter than ever with the release of the new album. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show courtesy of Cavo. As usual just email us with your name to to enter. 

From their press about Thick as Thieves:

Smith calls the album the unveiling of who Cavo truly is. “It's a collection of vastly different songs with varying tones and tempos, kind of like we’re four completely unique people with different backgrounds coming together to tell one common story,” he said. There are high’s, like “Last Day," which is a potent, up tempo sing-along, while there are low’s, like "Never Gonna Hurt,” a relatable ballad that will yank at your heartstrings. There's "Celebrity," a chunky, guitar-driven song with escalating tension, while "Circles" boasts a fiery riff that refuses to be extinguished…sorta like the band’s spirit.

Overall, writing with Cavo allows the band the chance to work out his life on paper and to say something without having to wait for a response; this is precisely why the fans connect so deeply with them. Walker commented, "You get to say something to someone, and for three-and-a-half minutes, they listen and they take it with them. 'California' is me telling my dad what I’m going through since he passed away. In reality, he’s not here, but that's not important. I get to say it out loud every night."

LaRoy summed up Cavo in 2011 and beyond by saying that this is band is the most successful relationship he has ever been in. "That's the coolest thing about it," he admitted. "We are four guys who hang together, play together and actually want to be friends again." The road to this healthy place could have been littered with a huge casualty. With their relationships repaired, Cavo is armed with a new album that finds the band where they need to be. With Thick as Thieves, there is nowhere to go but up.

Tickets for the show are $35 and can be found here. More information about the band can be found at these links:
