The Lost River Cavemen, the Bowling Green, Ky.-based Americana/Roots rockers, are coming through Chattanooga in support of their new self-titled album. They will be at The Honest Pint on Thursday, Sept. 19, with Mathien.
Review for The Lost River Cavemen:
Formed in 2005, The Lost River Cavemen consists of Michael McMillian (guitar/vocals), Geno Wilson (bass), Joshua Riddle (drums) and Steven Stewart (violin/fiddle).
Since then, their energetic and charismatic live shows have earned them a devoted and growing fan-base, and their first two albums, Taste of Life (2008) and ...And the Circus Goes On (2011) received wide praise.
They have shared billing with talent such as Keller Williams, Darius Rucker, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, J.D. Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers, Black Lillies, Ronnie McDowell, The Delta Saints, Moon Taxi, and more, and have completed multiple national tours since 2008.
The set list will include songs from their upcoming self-titled album, which will be released in late August. Riddle says the band really grew into its own sound with the new batch of songs. “It’s all about mixing styles and finding something old that can be polished and made new again. This new record keeps some of the American roots feel, but we've expanded our palate to include a more European roots aspect on some songs.”
McMillian says he is eager to take his new songs on the road. "Touring is the real payoff for all the hard work. You’ve honed your songs, sound and show, and are ready to present it in new places to new faces.”
