Produced from summer 2018 to autumn 2019, Caves was recorded entirely in Rocket Empire members Dave Dish and Jonathan Cates’ hometown of Portland, Oregon.

Caves showcases the history of Rocket Empire - from the distant past of working in record stores and the excitement of the first notes from a favorite artist’s freshly dropped track to the vastly different musical landscape of today. Social media now allows Rocket Empire to connect with fans from across the world, giving them insight into who they are and which songs speak to them.

With that connection in mind, Rocket Empire wrote Caves as a love letter to the fans. With this album, Rocket Empire were able to do what they do best – collaborate and have fun! The brotherhood and working relationships of the band remains the best part. Making music they love and sharing that music with the world has always been the goal. Have fun, make music, and see where the journey takes you!

Caves can be dark, but holds mystery and beauty. You never know what you might find around each bend, and the journey can be even more extraordinary than the destination.

We hope you enjoy exploring this new collection, and we’re so grateful to the fans for all the support and love over the years. Thank you for allowing Rocket Empire to be a part of your journey. – Credit: Nastassia Reichel
