CAPSIZE SIGNS TOEQUAL VISION RECORDSPREMIERES “I’LL TAKE THE BLAME”MUSIC VIDEORELEASES TWO-SONGDIGITAL SINGLE ANDLAUNCHES PREORDER FOR 7” VINYLANNOUNCES US HEADLINE TOUR AND DATES SUPPORTING BEING AS AN OCEAN


Today, San Diego, CA’s Capsize has announced their signing to Equal Vision Records and is premiering a music video for their new song “I’ll Take The Blame”. The video, which was directed by Tyler Ross (of Being As An Ocean), can be seen on capsize.merchnow.com.

The track comes from I’ve Been Tearing Myself Apart, a new two-song release from the band, which is also out today through digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon.
The songs will also be released as a 7” vinyl in four color variants: white (limited to 150), coke bottle clear (limited to 150), transparent blue (limited to 150) and black (limited to 50). Black and blue variants will be available on tour only, while the white and coke bottle clear variants will be available exclusively through MerchNOW. Preorders for the online variants have launched HERE.
“We could not be more excited to finally release new music and continue to grow as a band. We spent last December on the road to and from the studio, where we worked with Brian Hood at 456 Recordings in Nashville, TN on the new tracks. We’re super happy with the outcome of our time there. Right when we got home we shot a video with our best friend Tyler Ross, from Being As An Ocean. We’re already really deep in the writing process for our full-length and are anxious to get back in the studio,” shares Capsize vocalist Daniel Wand. “The new songs are the perfect transition into a new chapter of the band that we have been working towards for a really long time.”
He continues, “Putting out music through Equal Vision Records - a label that we have all respected since we were getting into underground music - is truly a rewarding experience. Having any association with bands that were once a part of it like Converge, Armor For Sleep, Refused is just wild, really. It’s awesome to see Bane releasing a final record this year on Equal Vision as well. We can’t thank Dan and the rest of the EVR team enough for taking us in and having faith in our band.”
Capsize formed in 2009 and is comprised of Daniel Wand (vocals), Ryan Knowles (guitar), Andrew Tamayo (drums), Chris Darton (guitar), and Joey Toarmina (bass).
The melodic hardcore outfit will begin recording their debut full-length album in May with Jay Maas at Getaway Recordings in Haverhill, MA. Prior to recording, the band will head out on a west coast run supporting Being As An Ocean, followed by a coast-to-coast headliner with Choir Vandals. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.

POZ Interview: Gameface

propertyofzack:

image

PropertyOfZack Senior Writer Jesse Richman sat down with Jeff Caudill of Gameface at SXSW a few weeks ago. We chatted with the band about SXSW, reuniting, the release of Now Is What Matters Now, potential touring, and much more. Check out the interview below!

by Jesse Richman

POZ: Can I get your name and what you do in the band?
JC: Jeff Caudill. I play guitar and sing.
 
POZ: So you guys just rolled into South By?
JC: We came in last night, and just hung out and tried to stay safe.
POZ: Had you been down here before?
JC: Back in the old days, we played a very un-un-un-unofficial thing. We tried to always have our tours correspond to this, just because it’s a fun place to be. But we were never a South By band. In recent years, I’ve come just to hang, and play a little acoustic thing here and there.
POZ: How has it changed from back in the day? Is it even recognizable?
JC: It gets bigger and bigger and bigger every year. It’s crazy. It’s absolutely crazy now.
 
POZ: So like you said, you guys played unofficial back in the day but then weren’t here for a long time. That’s because there wasn’t a band for a long time! You’re now back together. How does it feel? Has it settled in that you’re really doing this again?
JC: Maybe after this week it will. Our record [Now Is What Matters Now] comes out on Tuesday [March 18th]. It has been; it’s been very surreal. We got together in 2012 for some reunion shows — just a few — and that went really well. We didn’t mean to start the band again. Basically, we wanted better closure. Our break-up was messy; we basically imploded in 2003. It had been icy since then. It took ten years for us to be friends again. And then when the opportunity to do the Revelation Records anniversary shows, we said if we’re going to do it, we should do it now. Let’s just see how it works. We got back together just to rehearse for those shows. It was awesome. It feels different now because all of the expectations, and just all of the stuff you deal with when you’re really trying to do a band, it kind of means something different now because we don’t really care about all of that stuff. Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself. When we got back together to do the shows, we had no intention of doing new material. We just wanted to see if we could be friends, see if we could have fun, and revisit those old songs. I even said “we’re not writing new material, this is not a thing.” But it just felt good, it felt good enough. And then I started writing a lot. Like a lot, like all last year I wrote. It got to be really, really exciting.
 
POZ: So is the new album all stuff that was written in the last year? Were there songs that were leftover from the old days?
JC: It’s all brand new. It’s all from 2013, pretty much. We were pretty good about editing ourselves, and not having too much run over, even in the old days, so there weren’t any old Gameface songs lying around. And even if there were, I don’t think we would have touched that anyway?
 
POZ: Was it tough to start writing for Gameface again? Or does it come back to you like riding a bike?
JC: Oh man, honestly it just happened. And the thing is, I do other projects and play with other bands and write music all the time. I didn’t even have to write specifically for this band. This is just how we sound when these four people play music together. A lot of people have asked, “did you consciously try to update your sound? Did you try to sound like you did back in the old days?” And we didn’t really try anything at all. This is just how it works. And I think, it doesn’t sound dated, but it doesn’t really sound like be tried to be all 2014 either.
POZ: Did you have to keep stuff out that didn’t fit you guys?
JC: No, not at all, it was completely natural. This is just what this band does. I’m sure that, to some people, we might sound like belong in the 90s. But whatever, that’s just who we are.
POZ: Well I’m not sure you guys fit into the 90s, in the 90s!
JC: Nope! That’s a whole other conversation.
 
POZ: Well let’s have that conversation! You guys kind of were odd ducks in the 90s. No one really sounded like you, and I think maybe there wasn’t a natural fit in terms of a scene. Do you feel like that’s changed now? Do you still feel like you’re way out there?
JC: Now? I have no idea. I really don’t. And the beauty of it is, that’s not important to me anymore. It used to bother me. It used to bother me that we didn’t have a scene. We didn’t fit in with the emo thing but we were embraced by part of it. We also didn’t really fit the pop-punk thing, but we were embraced by part of that. We’re not a Warped Tour bad, and we’re not a Jade Tree band — that was kind of how we felt. But now, it’s great. We’re fuckin’ 40 years old and we don’t give a shit. We’re just playing what we love to play. And thank god for Equal Vision, and for people who still care about our band. That’s the only reason we’re doing this.

love Gameface.
