Formed in 2016 by guitarist Tyler Harper and drummer Jeremy Randazzo – who had previously worked together in multiple projects – the initial idea for Capra was to create something that would be fresh while still giving listeners a sense of nostalgia for the sounds of the late 90’s and early 2000’s hardcore and punk scenes. After going through a few line-up changes, and adding Crow Lotus (vocals), Trevor Alleman (guitar), and Ben Paramore (bass) to their ranks, everything came together. Capra‘s full-length debut, In Transmission – which was recorded with Jai Benoit (Golgothan, Father Rust), then mixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues) and mastered by Brad Boatwright (Pig Destroyer, Integrity, Torche, Idle Hands) – is literally the culmination of years of hard work, reflecting everything they have been writing and pouring into the band since solidifying the lineup. “We wanted it to be the heaviest and most complete record we could possibly lay down, composed of only the best songs we’ve written over years of playing together. It’s the best set of songs we’ve ever had, and we’re all extremely proud of them, and each other, so we hope it sounds like a total passion project – because it is,” says bassist Ben Paramore.
