Belgian punks Captain Kaiser are delighted to share with the world their huge new single ‘DRIVE’, released today via [PIAS].

‘DRIVE’, produced by Jay Maas (DefeaterTitle FightDeath Of A Nation), can be streamed here:

Check out the video for ‘DRIVE’ here:

Captain Kaiser‘s vocalist Sascha Vansant comments: “DRIVE” is about that moment I took the car to get away from the reality of losing someone I dearly loved. With the song we’re taking a different direction in our sound and working together with someone like Jay Maas was a major help to create a more mature- sounding track.”

One stage at a time, Captain Kaiser have conquered the punk scene while driving the van, celebrating life and making the walls drip with sweat.

The band have grown, but that word means more than bigger rooms or stages. It refers to a new stage in their musical development, a level of emotional depth they’ve never explored before. Captain Kaiser sound more raw and pure than ever, without having lost their knack for catchy melodies.

Hitting perfectly the boundaries between hardcore and post-punk, the band’s newest single lets you just feel it, right there where it hurts. It is the loud and clear announcement for a new phase in Captain Kaiser‘s life. A punchier, heavier and more emotional sound following the passing of vocalist and frontman Sascha‘s mother – ‘DRIVE’ perfectly encapsulates the pain of loss and the feeling of driving senselessly into nothingness.

Captain Kaiser will be touring England shortly.
