Well, Southern Californian boys Capsize are back and have ditched their hardcore roots to bring a sophomore record that would rival Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Finch in their prime. Yes, the nostalgic appeal makes the record more appealing, but Capsize have produced a relevant album in a world that nobody else is doing right now. We're back in the studio this week, but we've got a lot of album announcements to catch up on as well as a review of the surprise hit second album from Southern California hardcore punk band, Capsize. A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me A Reintroduction is an energetic, barbaric display of no-holds-barred bitterness and brooding. The lyrics are raw, emotional and aggressive, this band certainly make this album seem like cartharsis, as it goes on, with lyrics that sound as fresh as the day they were written with a mixture of clean and screamed vocals, the mix really works for the band giving this album a whole new level of intensity.
I think I did that. This Summer, the band will perform on the second half of the Vans Warped Tour, from July 17 to August 13. The popular throwback style of incorporating once forgotten styles has driven freshness into genres that were thought to be dead, and given them a new lease of life, but the Underoath era of early noughties emo post-hardcore is surely too outdated to warrant a revival.

The cover is one of his original paintings and I purchased it from him as the cover and used that as a starting point to make the art.
Capsize's Reintroduction is hit-and-miss as a whole, but it's a worthwhile listen for fans of their influences. The songs are well structured, complete with breakdowns highlighted by dissonant guitar shots, and the hooks are catchy, but they begin to plateau as the album moves along. A bold move by the Californians that has paid off massively. Lyrically exploring personal demons and vulnerability, as well as love and loss, and musically exhibiting an impressive blend that ranges from driving, in-your-face chaos to unexpectedly ambient, dreamlike soundscapes — A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me pushes the band into new musical territory, while remaining true to their roots. The title represents what the album does for the band, and me personally.
It was a group effort and everyone involved absolutely killed it. Do 15-year-old punk girls have diaries? You Got the Wrong Idea 10.
