Planets of Old is an extended play released by American alternative rock band Cave In. This EP is the first release of new material from the band since their split in 2006.

Recording and release[edit]

Cave In intended to record and release an EP rather than a full-length album so that any new material could be quickly recorded and released.[3] Planets of Old was originally made available at Cave In's reunion show on July 19, 2009[4] and was later made available to the general public on July 28, 2009 through Hydra Head Records.[5] The song "Retina Sees Rewind" was released on July 8, 2009 on iTunes.[6] Planets of Old was originally exclusive to 12" vinyl, but was later released on CD in January 2010.[7] The CD version includes a DVD featuring the live performance from Cave In's reunion show on July 19, 2009.[8] Some versions also included a limited edition CD featuring audio from the same live show.[citation needed]
