Exclusive: Captain Trips Premiere Video for ‘Chances’

South Coast skatepunks Captain Trips unevil their new single from their upcoming Stand By EP.

Portsmouth skate-punks Captain Trips are primed to release a brand new Ep Stand By on October 5th, via the lovely chaps at Umlaut Records (you can pre-order now). The video was shot at their practice rooms at Quay West Studios in Gosport, using a grand budget of £0.

“This tune is lyrically based on the irony of having all the knowledge of the world in your pocket, at your fingertips, and how sometimes that has caused some of the biggest divisions in society,” said vocalist/guitarist Rich Mayor.

“This is the first nod to the created echo-chamber theme that runs through other parts of the EP, and an acknowledgement that we do at least a bit of ‘opinion-cleansing’, primarily to make room for more videos of animals doing cool sh*t, but also because we get tired. Tired of checking out what seem like suspect facts, tired of the anger and hate in the comments sections, but also realising (perhaps in a defeatist way) that far less is checked and it’s sort of out of control. Shame that. ”

Pre-order Stand By now direct from Umlaut Records.

Captain Trips are hosting an EP launch show in Portsmouth on October 6th with Layman’s Terms and Laughing In The Face Of, plus a gig in Ashford with The Human Project, Spoilers and Eat Defeat on 15th November. They’ve got some cool plans for future, so make sure you follow them on Facebook.
