New Release: Oh Captain! - Pistols Out (9th October 2014)

Something a little different today with the upcoming release of Pistols Out by Brighton's newest post-rock export Oh Captain! As unlikely a gathering as you could find, a performance artist, a social scientist, a drummer who works with coffee and a guitar mangling glasses salesman started a band and called it Oh Captain!, blending a diverse range of experiences and influences into a crazy mass of apocalyptic post rock goodness.

Oh Captain!'s debut album was funded by a Kickstarter campaign supported by a lot of generous fans, providing the band with the funding they needed to properly launch, promote and support the album. Also, to produce some natty merchandise. To further promote the album launch Oh Captain! are engaging in various promotional activities, including giveaways and streaming, leading up to the launch night at The Hope in Brighton on October 9th.

The track listing of Pistols Out goes as follows:

  1. Intro
  2. I Can See Your Heart
  3. Legs
  4. Day Of The Dead
  5. Body Of This Man
  6. Pistols Out
  7. The Noise
  8. 16 Bit
  9. White Rocket

To give you all a better idea of what to expect Oh Captain! have released the final track of the album on Bandcamp. Have a listen.

There is also an album teaser giving a short snippet of each track.  It's great to hear new, fresh and inspired music being made here in the UK - can't wait to hear more from Oh Captain!
