Throughout the pandemic in the absence of live music, metal-specific talk show Two Minutes to Late Night have served the greater heavy music community well with their Bedroom Covers series.
Pooling various artists from different bands, the collective has amassed an archive of collaboration performances that would make an insane album anthology. Enlisted some of the very best from the worlds of punk, hardcore, and the various enclaves of metal, the Bedroom Covers series was ambitious enough, but now Two Minutes to Late Night have opted to up the ante.
Announcing their new Splitsville series, Two Minutes to Late Night are paying tribute to the classic 7" split records that have long been the jewel of most fans' music collection. For the first installment, TMtLN have tapped hardcore veterans Every Time I Die and paired them spacey post hardcore amalgam Cave In.
"Two Minutes to Late Night presents Splitsville: a new recurring live stream where we get two bands we love to cover a song from each other’s catalog. It's a homage to the classic 7" cover splits nerds have to own but with two kick-ass music videos to go along with it.
This first Splitsville is going to be between Massachusetts space rock legends Cave In and Buffalo hardcore party kings, Every Time I Die. The stream will feature Cave In covering Every Time I Die and Every Time I Die covering Cave In with videos of the quality you come to expect from Two Minutes to Late Night PLUS exclusive crossover merch for both bands you can only buy during the 24-hour stream. Also, their song choice will remain a mystery until the premiere of the stream - even from each other!"
The inaugural Splitsville featuring Every Time I Die and Cave In takes place on January 29th and begins at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. Tickets are all of $5 and get you access to the stream for 24 hours - they can be purchased - HERE
