Cave In have announced details of their forthcoming seventh studio album, Heavy Pendulum, and shared its lead-off single New Reality.

Set for release on May 20 via Relapse Records, the 14-track album is the follow-up to 2019's Final Transmission.

Talking up the new release, frontman Stephen Brodsky says, “Cave In’s been around for over 25 years now, and the time has come for an album that scales all of our creative peaks. Talk about a wild and weird ride! And here we are with Heavy Pendulum - it certainly feels like a remarkable event, given the erratic trajectory of our band. New Reality was always the lead-off track - that was pretty obvious during the writing process. New line-up, new label, new album… a new reality indeed, and it all adds up to a new lease on life for Cave In.”
