"Sad songs for almost happy people"

CAGES is a new five piece screamo/emotive hardcore band from Ludwigsburg, Germany - and I'm so thrilled to make an exclusive full stream of their debut EP called "Second Thoughts". The members played in some of my fav diy bands - We Had A Deal, RĂȘche and Schönleben - so it's kinda a diy-supergroup.

"Second Thoughts" is a thriving ode to diy and punk - raw, highly emotional and heartfelt. They took the best ingredients from the decades and put them in these five amazing songs. Everything was mastered by scene legend Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios and released by these lovely labels - Through Love Rec., Middle-Man Rec., Shove Rec. and Long Legs Long Arms Distr. 

schwarzer.rand did again a brilliant job on the artwork and the vinyl packaging - check the website for more - just love everything he does.

Hope you all like this release as much as I do. Enjoy.
