Horrible to hear about the passing of a truly great human and musician. Caleb Scofield was incredibly talented and a part of so much important music. Cave In has always been a very important band in heavy music; A band that showed everyone it’s ok to think outside of the box and experiment with things outside of hardcore. My first tour with BTBAM was opening for Cave In and Converge. (A dream tour for a metal and hardcore kid like me) We made life long friendships on that tour and went on to play more shows together over the years. My most heartfelt condolences go to his family, band mates and fans.
