Captives Announce Tour and New Track ‘Vines’

Tassie punk ‘n’ rollers Captives are gearing up to drop their first ever full-length froth-fest: the album is due sometime before the end of 2016/once they find a moment to sober up, but in the meantime, here’s a sneaky peek at what to expect from the opus!

“Vines” is Captives’ first chunk of shred since 2014’s Butterflies, Diamonds and Lightning EP; while that record was nothing short of mind-blowing, two years have treated the band well. The new cut booms with thumping drums, scathing lead riffs and a chorus that fans of any genres will see themselves singing along to uncontrollably. Like the rest of the as-yet-untitled LP, the single was laid down with long-time producer Tom Larkin (of Shihad glory), and sees them further challenge the boundaries of genre.

Channel [V] have pledged their allegiance to the forest horror federation, and Rolling Stone threw their two cents in by likening the boys to “the visceral thrill of being throttled by razor-sharp guitars, slapped around the head by thundering drums and screamed at by a man gargling glass” – a fitting description, if we do say so ourselves.

So when can you see this speaker-slaying crew tear shit up in the flesh? We’re glad you asked!

Captives will be heading off on a massive tour across the country this September, bringing their boozy brand of flaring punk and face-melting rock to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Hobart, Devonport, Brisbane, Geelong, Bendigo and Ballarat. It’s gonna be a big one, but not just because of how many dates they’re notching their calendars with: anyone that’s seen Captives take to the stage can agree, their live show is one you won’t soon forget.
