Caleb Scofield, best known for his role as bassist in bands like Cave In, Zozobra, and Old Man Gloom, tragically passed away last week at 39 after being involved in an accident along the highway in Bedford, New Hampshire. As his friends and family, as well as the rock and metal community grieves, label Hydra Head Industries is planning some special releases to benefit Scofield's family.
Among those releases are Zozobra vinyl reissues, an EP of unreleased Zozobra music, and an Old Man Gloom t-shirt. It's also worth mentioning that Hydra Head Industries is the record label owned by Aaron Turner, Scofield's bandmate in Old Man Gloom (among other bands).
Rest in peace, Caleb.
With the blessing of Caleb Scofield's family, Hydra Head is preparing to initiate a music based fundraising effort on their behalf. This will take shape in the form of a special reissue of Caleb's Zozobra albums on vinyl, an unreleased EP of Zozobra songs, and an Old Man Gloom Caleb tribute shirt. All proceeds will be donated to the Scofield family. This serves as our recognition of love and appreciation for Caleb, as well as a gift to all the people who've been positively impacted by his music. We are honored to help carry the torch of his creative voice into the future. The fundraiser will be launched later this week, details to follow. Thank you.
