Captives are a ferocious hard-hitting Rock 'n Punk 'n Roll band from Melbourne. With the release of their debut self-titled EP in 2013 and the follow up ‘Butterflies, Diamonds and Lightning’ EP the year after, they quickly gained the attention of national radio in Australia with the first single ‘Insomnia’ becoming one of the top fifty most played songs on Triple J Unearthed radio in that year.
In 2018 Captives released their debut album ‘ Over the Rainbow’ charting at number fifty-six on the iTunes Charts, which was backed up with some hectic touring around the country and support slots for bands such as The Damned, Pulled Apart By Horses, Cog, Shihad, The Mark of Cain, The Hard-Ons and more.
Shortly after the band went back to the studio to track two new digital single releases with the latest hit 'Tommy Gun' gaining masses of attention from Spotify playlists around the globe... even making the cover of the 'Rock Out' playlist in Waynes world type scenes landing in the company of the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Green Day and The Darkness.
The last twelve months have seen Captives hit the shores of Japan for an almighty successful first tour with additional shows added to the schedule in New Zealand and Australia.. then there was a massive world pandemic announced mid-tour of Taiwan, the band soldiered on and completed the final shows in Japan as the world crumbled, the borders closed and Australia ran out of toilet paper.
