Hello CC Nation! In one day we depart for our fall tour of the USA! This is a short three week tour (short by our standards) -our first show will be in Dayton, OH on Sept 30th and our last show will be in Great Falls, Montana on Oct 21st. We only have a few states we haven’t played in so we’re thrilled to cross another one off our list and make our Montana debut with not one, but TWO shows! We have a lot of exciting new merch for you, including a new cactus-themed shirt and our first ever embroidered patches! Tour dates below, hope to see you at a show! Oh yeah, and our best buds and psych sludge rock gods IRATA are coming along for the first week and a half! (** means w/ IRATA).

Our new Melvins-worshipping 7 inch, Pantheon: Vol. 2 is now available to purchase and stream at Bandcamp! You can also get Pantheon: Vol. 2 at itunes, and hear it on Spotify, Pandora, and all the other usual streaming services. At bandcamp you can get a digital download, or purchase a really awesome, limited edition 7 inch record with one of a kind artwork (that comes with a download). One pressing only!
Check out this premiere feature in New Noise Magazine. Before the 7 inch was released on this past Friday, they previewed our Melvins’ cover on Side B of the record. It’s a crazy, double theremin noise rock extravaganza freak out version of “Cow,” the closing track to the iconic 1991 album Bullhead. We’re pretty proud of this recording, and proud of our tribute to some of our biggest rock and roll heroes. It’s very different from the Melvins’ version of “Cow” – there’s no replicating that Dale Crover drum solo – but it’s quite in the spirit of the Melvins, who do some of the most original cover songs ever. We’re happy about how it came out.
Side A features “Lord Pinto” – an old, very silly song from the William and Mary days (about a fictional National Portuguese Cricket team) reworked and given additional kicks in the ass – now it’s one of our favorites to play live – a total riff fest with hardcore, thrash and sludge elements! The artwork (above), as with all Pantheon releases, is a tribute to the band being covered – so this is our weird riff on the Bullhead art, by our right hand man from Australia Jase Harper.
Pre-orders are shipping out, so hang tight, you’ll be getting yours soon! Again, if you haven’t picked up a copy, listen and BUY HERE. Keep up-to-date with any reviews of the 7 inch, as well as any CC coverage generally, at our PRESS page.
Hello beloved CC fans! Our second ‘Pantheon series’ 7″ is now available for pre-order! Beginning last year Caustic Casanova decided it would be really cool to re-record and re-arrange some of our favorite older songs, and then press them into a 7″ with an additional cover song on side B! Last year’s PANTHEON: VOL 1 was ‘Glossolalia’ from our Imminent Eminence record plus a cover of Pentagram’s ‘Forever My Queen’. This year’s PANTHEON: VOL 2 features ‘Lord Pinto’ from the earliest of Caustic Casanova days, plus a cover of ‘Cow’ by none other than the Melvins! The PANTHEON series will be ongoing so that we always have new releases for you in-between full length albums. ROCK ROCK ROCK around the clock is the goal!
PANTHEON: VOL 2 will be officially released on September 8th, 2017, but in the meantime you can stream side A ‘Lord Pinto’ and pre-order it from bandcamp at this link –> https://causticcasanova.bandcamp.com/album/pantheon-volume-2
The PANTHEON series art will always be inspired by the album art of the artist we cover on side B! See if you can guess the Melvins record…………

TIGHT C U THR.
Tonight, Friday, May 19th we have the distinct honor of headlining the newest edition of the long-running Capital City Showcase, the Washington, DC area’s best variety show! We’ll be playing at Iota in Arlington, VA with three comedians (Rahmein Mostafavi, Elahe Izadi, and Jon Yeager) and music from Cassie Urbany! Something new for the CC – we’re all big comedy fans so this is really exciting for us. Come check it out! Show starts at 8:30, CC goes on at 9:30! $12!
Iota is at 2832 Wilson Blvd. in Arlington, Virginia. Facebook event page with further details is HERE.
Hope to see you there! We’ll be playing two new songs that we’ve never performed live, and that we just recorded for our new album!
This April 2017 your beloved CC will enter the studio and begin recording a new album. Once again we’ll record with the multi-talented J.Robbins at his Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD! Woo! April will see the first two of four sessions completed, with the rest of the album to be completed later in the summer. Expect a heavier and more experimental album than 2015’s critically acclaimed ‘Breaks’. Remember, Fortune Favors The Bold. Keep an eye on our social media for progress updates! And don’t forget to pre-order our newest 7″ in the Pantheon series – Pantheon: Volume 2 – out this Summer!
It’s been a while since we rapped at ya on the ole official CC website! We’ve been busy planning big things for 2017 and writing our new record. Exciting news to come!
On the local show front, we’ve got our first ever gigopolis in Annapolis, Maryland TONIGHT at Metropolitan Kitchen and Lounge! We’re pleased to be celebrating Mark Cruikshank’s birthday – the man organizes Maryland Doom Fest and does a lot of promotion for the local heavy music scene. We’re happy to call him a friend and we were honored to be asked to play his birthday bash! We’ll be sharing the stage with our old friends Foghound, a most excellent, fuzzy, trippy stoner rock band, and good buddies Cavern, Maryland’s finest instrumental rock band, as well as our friends-to-be Mantis Toboggan, who will open the show! This particular musical concert is also a benefit for Dave Benzotti – his Benzotti Live radio show has done a lot for local heavy music over the years, and the show is in financial trouble. The proceeds from this riff fest will go directly to keeping this important radio show afloat.
Doors are at 8, and the show starts at 9. Tonight, Saturday night, February 25th! The show is $10 and is 18 and up. The facebook event page is HERE. The Metropolitan Kitchen is at 169 West St. in downtown Annapolis.
Mantis Toboggan: 9-9:45
Caustic Casanova: 11-11:45
Let’s recap shall we?
Birthday Bash? Yes!
Benefit Show? Yes!
First CC show in Annapolis? Yep!
Outstanding bill? Absolutely!

IF THAT WAS UNCLEAR

On to the details of the show of our final show of 2016 – it’s tonight, December 17th, with the new-ish heavy rock band Virginia Creep. We are quite excited to play with them.

FREE show, early 6 PM start time, CC on first. It’ll be over by 8. No excuses! And it’s at the brand new home of Mobius Records, the best record store in Fairfax City, Virginia! Come shop for records and listen to the jams! Can’t wait to see you there! Facebook event page HERE.
