Recently reunited Miami-based sludge rock pioneers Cavity return to the stage with support from noise rock outfit Other Body and Prison Warder. No cover. Cavity was formed in 1992 by bass player Daniel Gorostiaga and vocalist Rene Barge in Miami, FL. Initial members included drummer Joey and guitarist Raf Luna. Guitarists Raf and John Bonanno and drummer Jason Lederman joined in 1993. Raf departed soon after to join The Crumbs and was replaced by Anthony Vialon, a member of punk band Load and Floor. After a string of single releases and extensive tour work, Cavity issued their debut album, ‘Human Abjection,’ enlisting Steve Brooks as the band’s second guitarist and Jorge Alvarez as drummer, replacing Joey Luna. Released on Gorostiaga’s own City Of Crime label, ‘Human Abjection’ was released as a limited run of 500 copies. Soon after the album’s release, Cavity drew the attention of punk artist Pushead, who signed the band to his Bacteria Sour label. The ‘Human Abjection’ sessions, along with new material and songs from earlier 7" releases, were released as a compilation, ‘Drowning,’ in 1996. Cavity’s next release, ‘Somewhere Between The Train Station And The Dumping Grounds’, was issued on Rhetoric Records. The ‘Insignificant Laid’ EP featuring Betty Monteavaro on drums was released in 1997 on Bacteria Sour. The band’s profile took a high profile turn when Cavity released their seminal 1999 album ‘Supercollider’ on Mark Kozik’s Man’s Ruin record label. Soon after, the band put out the four track ‘Wounded’ EP on No! Records which included a cover version of the Germs ‘Shutdown (Annihilation Man)’. By this time Rene Barge had departed the band. Ryan Weinstein joined soon after on second guitar, and Vialon assumed the role of lead vocalist. Cavity toured across America with Swedish alternative punk band The Refused, and soon after, both Weinstein and Vialon left the band, the latter relocating to Switzerland. Jason Landrian was enlisted for guitar and Barge reclaimed his position as frontman for a series of West Coast performances. Cavity signed to Hydra Head Records in 2001 and released ‘On The Lam’. Cavity fans who attended Krazy Fest were treated to limited edition copies of ‘On The Lam’, restricted to 100 copies, made for sale only at this gig. Cavity broke up in 2002.
