Formed in 2016 by guitarist Tyler Harper and drummer Jeremy Randazzo, the initial idea for CAPRA was to create something that would be fresh while still giving listeners a sense of nostalgia for the sounds of the late ’90s and early 2000s hardcore and punk scenes. Following various lineup changes, and adding Crow Lotus (vocals) and Trevor Alleman (bass) to their ranks, everything came together.
The band’s most recent full-length, In Transmission (2021) – recorded with Jai Benoit (Golgothan, Father Rust), then mixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), and mastered by Brad Boatwright (Pig Destroyer, Integrity, Torche, Idle Hands) – represents the culmination of years of hard work, reflecting everything they’ve been writing and pouring into the band since solidifying the lineup. “We wanted it to be the heaviest and most complete record we could possibly lay down, composed of only the best songs we’ve written over years of playing together,” said Paramore upon its release.
The band is currently putting the finishing touches on new material with details to be unveiled in the weeks to come. In the meantime, preview and purchase In Transmission at THIS LOCATION.
