As every great New York music story starts, the formation of Caveman began with a few underage kids sneaking into a bar. Fast-forward and they have just released their third album, Otero War, arguably their most self-assured album to date. With the new release, the band has shattered their narrow indie-rock image and has branched out incorporating more classic rock and folk elements. On Otero War, it's clear that they settled into a rhythm, and know exactly what it takes to produce an album that feels grounded and complete.
We caught up with frontman Matthew Iwanusa before the band started touring to discuss the new album, his favorite performance of all time, and what it's like to be a Caveman.
