Cavo Hits No. 1With “Champagne”


Burbank, CA – After steadily climbing various Rock radio charts for the past several months, “Champagne,” the propulsive debut single from St. Louis’ Cavo, has hit No. 1 on the BDS/Billboard Active Rock chart.

The track has reached an audience of more than 117 million, scoring more than 150 radio adds at all Rock formats across the country, including 60 stations in Top 5 Power Rotation and 80+ stations with Top 5 most requested phones. The single has also broken into the Top 10 on the Mainstream Rock Chart, and the Top 25 on the Modern Rock Chart.

“We are really excited to have hit Number One on our first single,” says Cavo’s frontman Casey Walker. “It’s a huge milestone to reach, and we’re so appreciative of all of the support we’ve gotten from radio stations and new fans around the country. Hopefully, this is a sign of more great things to come!”

“Champagne” is the first single from Cavo’s major-label debut album, Bright Nights Dark Days, which was released by Reprise Records on August 11th. The album debuted at No. 48 on the Billboard album chart and is currently sitting at No. 3 on the Hard Rock album chart, No. 10 on the Alternative album chart, and No. 13 on the Top Rock album chart.

Produced by David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, All Time Low), Bright Nights Dark Days is a passionate collection of powerful rock-and-roll and keenly felt lyrics. The album also includes the track “Let It Go,” which is featured on the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack, released June 23rd.

Cavo, which is singer Casey Walker, guitarist Chris Hobbs, drummer Chad La Roy, and bassist Brian Smith, have been on the road all summer performing on the Monster Energy second stage line-up of Mötley Crüe’s hard-rock extravaganza Crüe Fest 2.
