Captives once again worked with Tom Larkin (Producer) and Samuel K Sproull (Mixing Engineer) in the now-Homesurgery Recordings Studios (nee Studios in the City.) for Over the Rainbow!

Captives have enjoyed rotation play on triple j and triple j unearthed (they were one of the top 50 most played artists on triple j unearthed in 2014!), some love on Triple M, and have supported the likes of Cog, The Damned, Pulled Apart By Horses, Grenadiers, Born Lion and Shihad, as well as toured their own hectic, raucous shows and tours.

“Over the Rainbow” will be released into the world on Friday March 30 via Inertia Distribution and will be available to pre-order in iTunes and Digital Outlets from Friday February 9th. Single “House Parties and Black Balloons” will be available in iTunes (as a grat track with the pre-order) and Spotify from 23rd March as well.
