We’re huge fans of both bands and moreover, they’ve been friends of ours for a long time.

CAPRA continues to tour in support of their full-length debut, In Transmission, released via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records last  year. 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), Trevor Alleman (guitar), and Ben Paramore (bass) to their ranks, everything came together. In Transmission —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) — is literally 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,” says Paramore. “It’s the best set of songs we’ve ever had, and we’re all extremely proud of them, and each other, so we hope it sounds like a total passion project — because it is.” Preview and purchase In Transmission at

“…the album is quite simply heavy-as-hell, with roaring guitars, earth-cracking drums, and bellowing basslines, and moving through the record feels like observing some kind of metaphysical cleansing in which audience participation is required.” – New Noise Magazine

“Effortlessly moving from classic hardcore stomps, sludgy southern crawls and shades of atmospheric black metal, every note feels like it is absolutely necessary immediate, and tightness with which the band operates is something that many bands with five times as much experience as CAPRA wish they could attain.” – Nine Circles
