KILL THE CAPTAIN - NORTHERN HARDCORE SCAMPS DROP ROUSING DEBUT ALBUM THIS SPRING!
Unstoppable Yorkshire quintet unleash self-titled debut ready for public consumption from 14th March 2011.
Sparking glowing comparisons to the likes of Bring Me The Horizon and The Devil Wears Prada, Kill The Captain spring from the traps with ferocious pace, bonecrushing riffs and earnest intent. KTC are rapidly picking up speed throughout the underground and are set to crank up velocity with their impressive self-titled debut mini-album, out this March.
Kill The Captain were initially conceived back in 2007, originally featuring vocalist Danny and bassist Sam from highly rated metalcore crew ‘Asking Alexandria’. In 2008, both Danny and Sam left Kill The Captain to forge Asking Alexandria, and the remaining members Edd and Andy commenced with the dubious task of gathering new recruits to allow Kill The Captain to continue. After an eventful search, the dynamic duo enlisted Abram, Ryan and beatmaster Robbie to form a brand new line-up and chapter for KTC. After numerous rehearsals and a series of sweat-drenched shows in their hometown of York, the fiery five-piece pressed forward and began work on penning new tunes for their eagerly awaited debut record. During this time, the Yorkshire Terriers also extensively toured throughout England and Wales and racked up supports with Bury Tomorrow, Asking Alexandria, Postmortem Promises, Sylosis, Viatrophy, Exit Ten, The Casino Brawl, Fei Comodo, Trigger The Bloodshed, Empires Fade, and many more.
The band’s self-titled debut features seven blistering beefy slabs of hardcore infused metal. Kill The Captain have broken down their influences and meshed together their own unique take on hardcore metal and in turn have produced a record that is genuinely compelling and sure to pull new fans from all quarters.
The metalcore crew are now all geared to nationally stamp their mark on proceedings with their debut mini-album and full blown touring onslaught set for the Spring of 2011. Hit up http://www.myspace.com/killthecaptainktc for tour updates.
