Melbourne punk-rock band Captives have once again delivered a thunderous new single that turns the volume right up to eleven. Titled ‘Miles Away’, its the latest track to be released from their forthcoming album ‘Return To Mars’, which is set to drop on March 31st 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.
Speaking about the new cut, Aaron of the band explained, “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.”
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.
