Miami's Cave of Swimmers on Touring the U.S.: "You Leave the State, It's a Brand-New World"

Of the wild and weird animals in Miami's menagerie of heavy bands, Cave of Swimmers (formerly known as The Tunnel) is a particularly unique anomaly. Childhood friends Arturo Garcia and Guillermo Gonzalez have taken the power duo concept to a completely unexpected place.

Expanding and exploring their respective musical palettes and abilities together since the 4th grade, these two have developed a fire-breathing prog-metal style, fusing unbridled musical athleticism with gut-level chunk in a most satisfying and unexpected way.
