In The Company of Thieves with Cavo at Rock On The Range 2012
It was a great way to kick off a killer weekend of rock ‘n’ roll by sitting down with Brian Smith (bass) and Chris Hobbs (guitar) of Cavo. The guys were set to play later on that day, but stopped by to chat for a bit about the new record, Thick As Thieves, and current tour. Brian said TAT it’s a heavier album, and the band had a lot of fun making it. Chris added that the band has really enjoyed mixing songs from the new record into the setlist. He said the band now has the beautiful and fun problem of having too many songs to choose from! Later that day, Cavo delivered a stand-up rock show as they always do. They playing songs from the new album and threw in the hits here and there, as they always do.
In 2009, the band released their sophomore effort and major label debut, Bright Nights Dark Days. With their fresh brand of alternative rock,Cavo catapulted to stardom. The album hit #47 on the Billboard Top 200. The singles “Champagne” and “Crash” ruled the rock radio airwaves, and “Let It Go” was featured on the soundtrack of the blockbuster film Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen. Cavo released their third album, Thick As Thieves, on April 10 via Eleven Seven Music. The album debut at #96 on the Billboard Top 200, and is still climbing the charts.
Since Rock On The Range, Cavo is continuing on their U.S. Tour with a stop at PointFest in their home state of Missouri. This summer, the band scored a slot on the Carnival of Madness Tour along with ROTR acts Chevelle, Halestorm, and New Medicine.
