CAPSIZE PREMIERES “I THINK IT’S BEST WE DON’T TALK ANYMORE” VIA ROCK SOUND

Capsize has partnered with Rock Sound today, for the premiere of “I Think It’s Best We Don’t Talk Anymore”. The new song can be heard HERE and comes from the band’s sophomore full-length, A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me, which will be released on July 22.

“This song is about knowing someone is probably better off without you, but not being able to walk away from it yourself,” reveals vocalist Daniel Wand. “I really like the aggressive energy this song carries without needing to have a defined “heavy part”. I pushed myself really hard on this song and it was the first song that I had ever recorded that had more singing than screaming in it, which was a very new and exciting feeling for me and the rest of the band.”

The Southern California-based post-hardcore outfit also recently debuted a music video for “XX (Sew My Eyes)”, which can be seen now at capsizemerch.com, where album pre-orders are also available. The first pressing of vinyl is limited to 1000 across three color variants, including a newly released clear with haze (limited to 400), a tour exclusive variant of gold with black splatter (limited to 500), and an extremely limited edition version of black vinyl (limited to 100) that has already sold out. All pre-orders include an instant MP3 download of “XX (Sew My Eyes)” and “I Think It’s Best We Don’t Talk Anymore”.

A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me features a more prominent post-hardcore sound than on the band’s debut, The Angst In My Veins, with the incorporation of clean singing throughout. The new album, which was recorded in Atlanta, GA at Glow In The Dark Studios with producer Matt McClellan (The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean), showcases the band’s undeniable energy and intensity – and signature darkness. Lyrically exploring personal demons and vulnerability, as well as love and loss, and musically exhibiting an impressive blend that ranges from driving, in-your-face chaos to unexpectedly ambient, dreamlike soundscapes – A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me pushes the band into new musical territory, while remaining true to their roots.

Capsize is comprised of Daniel Wand (vocals), Andrew Tamayo (drums), Ryan Knowles (guitar), and Nicolas Lopez (guitar). All upcoming tour dates – including new US headline shows, dates on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, and Bloodaxe Festival in Japan – can be found below.
