||Heavy metallers Cage are returning to the stage from an 18-month hiatus with an all new line-up. This long running band will re-emerge with original members Sean Peck and Dave Garcia and three new additions: drummer Sean Elg, bassist Dwight Magic and guitarist Casey "The Sentinel" Trask. And there is more, Cage is currently in the studio working on their next release which is a horror-concept album set in London in 1869.
Dave Garcia says about Sean Elg, drummer from So Cal thrasher Nihilist: "This guy doesn't stop! He is a machine! He has played literally thousands of shows and just loves metal. We dig that about him."
About bassist Dwight Magic from the band Detonated, Sean Peck states: "He plays a six string fretless bass and has committed his soul to that instrument and the art of metal itself I tell you! He is by far the most skilled guy we have ever had at the position and is a great writer too."
Dave talks about the new guitarist Casey "The Sentinel" Trask, ex of the San Diego band Monument: "At just 22 years old it is crazy that he has such an old school love for the kind of metal that makes Cage go. The first jam we had I knew he was the guy. He has a great feel and just goes wild at practice. He pulls killer riffs out of thin air and is fun as shit to hang out with. We gave him the nickname 'The Sentinel', based on some comic nerd stuff that everyone who knows the X-Men will get, and it is also my favorite Priest song too."
Peck states about the new material: "It is very much influenced by HP Lovecraft and will ship with a 90 page mini novel telling the story in detail. It is really a massive challenge for us but so far we love it! During all this we also knew we had to get out and play some shows with the new guys. These dudes are a young and hungry bunch of thrashers!"
