Bridging the gap between pop-punk/post-hardcore, Calling All Captains are excited to announce their debut full-length album ‘Slowly Getting Better.’ Additionally, the band has shared their new single and music video ‘Wasted.’ ‘Slowly Getting Better’ is set to be released on October 29th, 2021 via Rude Records and Equal Vision Records and is available for pre-order HERE.
On the new single, the band shares: “‘Wasted’ is for the ones who are stuck in their vices. It’s tiring being a slave to addiction or substance abuse. Sometimes you play along and act the part, so you don’t lose those closest to you. Do these people have your best interest at heart? Do you only hang out and drink? Will they be there for you at 3:00 am on a Tuesday when you need it? This song reflects on the type of lives that we fall into as a young adult. Your twenties are not supposed to be a giant party. It is a difficult time transitioning between adolescence and adulthood. I wish I could tell my younger self to put down the substances and focus more on life’s essential aspects.”
Originating from small towns outside of Edmonton, Alberta, pop-punk/post-hardcore band Calling All Captains, consisting of Luc Gauthier (vocals), Brad Bremner (guitar/vocals), Connor Dawkins (guitar/vocals), Nick Malychuk (bass), and Tim Wilson (drums), has been manifesting the release of their debut full-length record, ‘Slowly Getting Better,’ for the past few years and are eager to finally share their creations with the world.
‘Slowly Getting Better’ is a compilation of hardships, persistence, love, and acceptance, and is a thrilling follow up to the 2019 EP, ‘Nothing Grows Here.’ Calling All Captains‘ unique sound allows them to dip their toes in both the pop-punk and post-hardcore realms using poppy instrumental elements with a punk-like, aggressive vocal style.
