In their first run, the ever-changing Cave In began as a screamy and fiery hardcore group, then became space-rock astronauts and later turned into some weird amalgamation of the two. Their growing pains were obvious, and it's no wonder they had to take a break in 2006. Now, after reforming in 2009, the quartet is releasing their first full-length, White Silence, on Tuesday. It's like they never left: On it, they meander, nick a few Pink Floyd chord changes here, and make oblique astronomy references there. Catch them before they run low on life support again. With Make Do and Mend and James Plotkin.
