Oh.

That awkward moment when you realize Redwall Abbey is the richest place in the entire Redwallverse.

Things The Abbey Has That Blow Vermins’ Minds:

  • Stained glass windows. Windows that aren’t just a hole in your wall.
  • Fruit trees. All in one place. With several varieties available.
  • Really big well-built stone walls.
  • Fireplaces constructed so the room doesn’t fill with smoke.
  • Actual beds. No seriously. Think about it.
  • A hand-woven tapestry that decorates an entire wall.
  • Multiple ovens.
  • A fish pond. And it’s not just for decoration. But it kind of is.
  • A deep cellar that keeps drinks cool. (That’s like the future.)
  • Stone floors, not dirt floors.
  • An apiary. Just… just go in your backyard and grab some honey. Do it.
  • Wall sconces.
  • Random assorted objects made of metal and not wood. Whoa.
  • Books. Parchment. Quill pens. Ink. More than one of these items each.
  • A well-stocked food and beverage collection.
  • Abbess Germaine’s spectacles. Like, glasses.
  • Legitimate stonework. Decorative gargoyles, statues, etc.
  • Martin’s sword.
  • Furniture. Chairs that are at least mildly comfortable. Cabinets.
  • Two ridiculously huge, shiny metal bells.
  • Soap.

It’s funny that in June 2012, almost exactly a year ago, I went straight from my high school graduation ceremony to the studio where we recorded our first songs as a band.

And now, one year later, we’re headed to back to the same studio to do it again. 

A lot is different. We have some different members, and we have some very different songs. We’ve had some fights and there were times when things didn’t look so good for us. There were periods where we didn’t do much at all. 

But without a doubt I can say that for the past few months, we have been working harder than ever before. And we are showing no signs of slowing down. 

We are all really excited to return to Getaway Recording a week from today, where we will be recording a six-song EP. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.

CAPSIZE ANNOUNCES NEW
US AND EUROPEAN HEADLINE DATES

EU/UK TOUR SUPPORTING
COUNTERPARTS AND SENSES FAIL
TO KICK OFF SEPTEMBER 25

US TOUR WITH
SILVERSTEIN AND SENSES FAIL
NOVEMBER 18 – DECEMBER 19

San Diego, CA’s Capsize will head out on a massive run of Fall and Winter tour dates, which will all kick off on September 25 in Paris, FR. The band will begin with a full EU/UK tour supporting Counterparts and Senses Fail, followed by a set of headline dates that will bring them through France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Austria.

Just one week after Capsize returns to the States, they will set out on a newly announced headline run - with select dates featuring support from Equal Vision Records labelmates Gatherers - that will bring Capsize to the start of their full US tour with Silverstein, Senses Fail and Hundredth. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.

Capsize has also just completed recording two new songs with producer Matt McClellan (Being As An Ocean, Better Off) that are expected to be released later this Fall.

The band has been on the road nearly non-stop since the September 2014 release of their debut full-length album, The Angst In My Veins, including US tours with Being As An Ocean, Defeater, ’68, Gideon, and the Common Vision Tour with Counterparts, Hundredth, and more. This year, the band also completed their first ever tours in Japan and Australia.

The Angst In My Veins was recorded with producer Jay Maas (Bane, Defeater) at Getaway Recordings in Haverhill, MA and is out now through Equal Vision Records. The album impressively debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard New Artist Chart, No. 27 on the Hard Rock Chart and No. 53 on the Independent Artist Chart.

Capsize’s latest music video from the album - featuring intense live performance footage of “Calming, Crippling” that was filmed in Europe on the Impericon Never Say Die Tour, can be seen now at Youtube.com/equalvision.

The band will enter the studio to begin recording their sophomore full-length in early 2016.
