|Capricorn releases their second single “Long Gone Heroes” from the upcoming album ’For The Restless‘.|
Doffe Ekberg (lead singer) comments on the track:
– Long Gone Heroes is one of those gems that takes time to write. You know the magic is in there somewhere, you just need to knuckle down and find it. I had the riff and the chorus to the song but it was in desperate need of a good vers.. I brought it back and forth to the drawing board, constantly showing Pontus every little change. And after a little while we had all the parts in place, including a killer guitar solo. Nothing wrong about that!
Capricorn is back with their second full-length album, For The Restless, offering the listener 10 tracks of burning rock ’n´ roll. Singer and guitarist Kristoffer Ekberg, bassist Pontus Blom and guitarist Peter Söderberg with a new drummer; Tomas Eriksson from Imperial State Electric and Captain Murphy.
Capricorn was founded in 2015 by Kristoffer Ekberg, who was nominated for “Stämskruven”, an award given in memory of Robert “Strängen” Dahlqvist. Both Kristoffer and bassist Pontus Blom played on Strängen’s record “Rock På Svenska” and played on the Strängen tribute gigs at Debaser and Sweden Rock Festival!
The band comments:
– It feels amazing to release this record on Wild Kingdom / Sound Pollution, a label with a lot of great albums under their belt throughout the years. It is a big honor to be a part of their legacy!
