Melbourne punk-rock band Captives have once again created a thundering new single that turns the volume up to eleven! Miles Away is the latest track to be released from their forthcoming album ‘Return To Mars’ out on March 31 ahead of their East Coast and Adelaide tour.
Their new record features the fierce rock anthems Buried and Bones, Villain and Gold.
Like their previous singles, Miles Away was recorded at The Alamo Studio in Melbourne and produced and mixed by Tyson Fish (Vance Joy, Mammal, Children Collide) and mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Cog, Shihad).
The song was written during lockdown in Melbourne, where the band longed to be anywhere other than the most locked down city in the world in 2021. “Miles Away has got all the feels about feeling trapped, stuck in a cycle, partying to excess and being so far away from everything and anyone you love. It sounds romantic in a sense. It also channels some inspiration from the Hoodoo Gurus, which was a band I grew up loving and still admire, so that’s ok with me” – Aaron Damon (Vocals)
Excluding Perth, Captives will be touring Australia this April with fans getting the opportunity to hear their new album ‘Return To Mars’ live and up close.
“The time between our last show in Japan 2020 and the first ones back will be almost two years and two months between drinks. Craaazzzy!! It’s kind of nerve racking but exciting at the same time to think we get to do it all again really soon. Can’t wait!” – Aaron Damon (Vocals)
“It’s a good feeling having a tour lined up for 2022. I think everyone is a bit fatigued from the last 2 years and just want to get back to their business. It’s basically the same for us, being back in some rooms with heaps of mates is what it’s about for us. I won’t take seeing a live band for granted ever again I don’t think.” – Matthew Damon (Drummer)
