Captain of Industry
Following rave reviews in the Cincinnati and Dayton press, Captain signed to Do Tell Records, an independent label with a strong catalog of artists including The Slackers, Enon, Pulley, and Skeleton Key. Captain of Industry embarked on three successful tours of the United States in 2004-2005, performing at such notable clubs as The Troubadour (Hollywood, CA), Slim's (San Francisco, CA), The Bottom Lounge (Chicago, IL) and the Knitting Factory (New York City, NY). Captain of Industry has performed over 60 shows in late 2005 alone, taking the stages with acts like Toots and the Maytals, The Slackers, Enon, Ambulette, Maritime, and many others. Captain of Industry's music can be found everywhere. Digital distribution by iTunes, the Orchard, Amazon, Interpunk, AOL.com Music, pureVolume.com, and GarageBand.com has brought the band to listeners all over the world. Captain of Industry's music has also been licensed in various media including a college-rock compilation featuring Guided by Voices, Fuse TV and Fox Sports Net television programs, Toyota's Driving Expectations website, and a myriad of music blogs, online radio stations, and podcasts. In October 2005 Captain of Industry released their second full-length album, The Great Divide, out now on Do Tell Records.
This album finds a more mature band expanding their musical horizons to Beach Boys-esque vocal arrangements and rhythm-driven dance music as complements to their signature brand of melodic rock. With strong radio support from college stations across the country and a large online fan community with over 16,000 plays on Myspace, Captain of Industry's latest release is poised to become a major success in 2006. Captain of Industry are preparing for their first European tour in 2006, and will continue touring the states and the world to spread their music to the masses. Read more on Last.fm.
