As vocalist Casey Walker likes to tell it, at the time “there just wasn’t anything left to give.” They had tried everything. ‘More guitars,’ ‘scream it don’t sing it,’ ‘pick up the pace,’ etc, etc.It didn’t work. Not for Cavo. No one believed it anyway. So they decided to stop. It was time to put this aside. And they did.
But then something happened a while later. The want slowly started creeping back in. But the want this time was different. It didn’t feel the same.For once, it wasn’t about what someone else wanted.No label, no producer, no agent, no manager, no one but them. And it felt right. So, they decided to try again, but this time, their way.
Over 50 songs. It was actually so much easier than they thought it would be. Cutting it down to just 12 songs was the hard part.
They decided to call it “Bridges,” because they felt like they had crossed over to someplace new.
“This record is completely ours,” Walker adds. “The fans will understand this record, and we feel we have to honor their support by creating something that is 100% Cavo. They would see right through it if we didn’t.”
