Capsule are back with brand new EP, titled Ferox. It’s out on December 12. Pre-order it here.
The band formed in 2005 in Miami, Florida with Eric Hernandez (drums, vocals) and Colin Smith (guitar, vocals). Performing as a three-piece with Shane Starak on bass, Capsule released a 7-song demo on Robotic Empire and toured extensively across the U.S., until 2007 when Ryan Haft replaced Starak on bass. Their first full length album, Blue, was released in 2008 on Robotic Empire.
By 2010, Capsule became a four-piece, with Haft moving to second guitar and Hernandez moving to bass guitar and vocals. Capsule released their second full length record, No Ghost, on Rorschach Records in 2011. Performing with various drummers in both the U.S. and Europe, the lineup was finally rounded out with Derrick Flanagin on drums.
After some touring around the U.S., including a stop at BEST FRENDS DAY in Richmond, Virginia, the five song EP,[A], was released digitally on April 20, 2013.
On October 31 of this year, Robotic Empire and Rorschach Records released [A] on vinyl for the first time. The release and other merch is available here.
After nearly a decade of no live performances, Capsule performed at the Fest 21 in Gainesville, Florida.
“Our priority is to make more music,” the band states. “We’d all be doing that anyway in some form or another, and with Capsule, we can push things as far as we want, both musically and technically. We don’t have any expectations other than producing the best art we can.”
