FFO: Make Do and Mend, Ignite, Balance and Composure
From the desk of Reveille Records:
Eagle Mountain, UT is pretty much where you would consider the middle of nowhere being. With literally no alternative music scene anywhere nearby, Captives decided to make the bold move and create music with a raw and deeply emotional sound hoping to become the spark that would ignite their city with the music that they grew up listening to.
Drawing inspirations from Brand New, Neutral Milk Hotel, Thrice, and Seahaven the band set out to record their debut EP “My Eyes Are Open.” A post-hardcore/alternative rock album about losing childhood innocence and becoming bitter over it. The album was recorded at Interlace Audio with Stephen Hawkes (American Me, Vanna)
The release marks the launch of Reveille Records digital distribution program where all digital download proceeds go directly to having the album pressed on vinyl. So if you want to spin this album on wax, you better make sure you pick it up from the Reveille Records online store via pre-order now or from iTunes, Amazon, and all other major digital music distributors on Nov. 13th.
The song we’re streaming is the opening track from the album and it’s titled “Forsaken”. Check it out below and also check out the pre-order HERE.
