Grabbing you from the opening vocals of Rat Detective and refusing to let you go until the final sing-along chorus of Return To Mars, Melbourne punk-rock 5 piece Captives thrill on their sophomore album Return To Mars.
Lyrically on Return To Mars, the band lean into various themes about power, relationships, greed, living through the boredom of a pandemic in Melbourne, all the while showcasing why they are punk-rock festival favorites with classic pounding drums and electrifying guitar riffs.
Return To Mars features the dark and melodic Buried & Bones, furiously energetic Villain, anthemic track Gold, and their new rock anthem Miles Away. Return To Mars came to life at The Alamo Studio in Melbourne and was produced and mixed by Tyson Fish (Vance Joy, Mammal, Children Collide) and mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Cog, Shihad).
With their songs designed to be sung by festival crowds, Captives will be touring the East Coast of Australia plus Adelaide in April and May, with fans getting the opportunity to hear the new material live and up close. The band have also just been announced on the bill with hard rock legends: Grinspoon, The Butterfly Effect, British India, Bodyjar for the Wallapalooza Festival, Gold Coast on May 7.
