New England sludge crew Cable have been silent on new music for a decade now. Last album The Failed Convict was released in 2009, with only the It Cost Me Everything 1994-1995 compilation and a reissue of 2003’s Never Trust a Gemini coming in the time since. That ends today, with the announcement of new record Take the Stairs to Hell and the debut of new song “Rivers of Old.”
The heavy, grooving new track makes one thing abundantly clear: Cable are back and firing on all cylinders.
“Take The Stairs To Hell has an overlying theme of anger, hatred, depression, negativity, etc,” bassist/vocalist Randy Larsen tells Decibel. “It was born out of songs I wrote as far back as 2014 and as recent as 2018. If I had to sum up the feeling and theme of the album its a slow decent into my own personal hell.
“After a 10-year break from releasing an album Cable is back. We put our blood, sweat and tears into this one. Enjoy the venom. It’s time to set the river straight.”
