Capstan Share “Blurred Around The Edges” Video Feat. Saxophonist Saxl Rose — Watch


Florida five-piece CAPSTAN — Anthony DeMario [vocals], Joe Mabry [guitar], Harrison Bormann [guitar], Andrew “Boz” Bozymowski [bass, vocals], and Scott Fisher [drums] — continue to satiate their fanbase with new music in the lead-up to the release of their second album SEPARATE, out July 23 via Fearless Records

Capstan have shared the video for the new song “blurred around the edges,” featuring an unexpected yet stunning guest appearance from sax sensation Saxl Rose. The song is intimate — almost too intimate — and anchored by a quirkily resonant riff and DeMario’s impassioned vocals. Watch and listen here

“It’s a vulnerable look into my mental state at its lowest point, but writing and playing it has helped me work through a lot of what I was feeling. I hope those who are feeling similar things can find catharsis in it too,” says Mabry about the song that goes so deep it hits marrow.

Capstan fire off a high-energy and unique mix of post-hardcore, prog rock, and metalcore, fusing deeply emotional lyrics and melodic choruses with major breakdowns and techy, push and pull instrumentation. The band has toured across the U.S., Canada, and Europe over the course of their career, supporting Silverstein, Bayside, Trash Boat, Set It Off, and taking part in the final Vans Warped Tour in 2018. They released their debut full-length record, Restless Heart, Keep Running, through Fearless Records in September 2019. 

As the world locked down in 2020, Capstan took advantage of their time off the road to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct songs for what would become SEPARATE. Having recently gone through a divorce, it was a tough time for guitarist Mabry. Most of the songs are about the depression and reflection he experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Capstan entered the studio with producer Machine [Lamb of God, Fall Out Boy] with one goal in mind: To make a record with no filler and all bangers.

Mission accomplished.

SEPARATE is ultimately a definitive statement for Capstan.
