Today marks the release of Swedish rockers Capricorn’s sophomore album “For the Restless”. Offering the listener 10 tracks of burning rock ‘n’ roll.
Doffe Ekberg (lead singer) comments on the album:
For the Restless is by far the best 10 songs that we have ever done (to this day). Definitely a proud moment with this one, it felt like we were on our toes throughout the whole process. I usually have a couple of favorite tracks, but this time it’s hard to pinpoint even one! I think you can hear that we like what we’re doing! It’s got pretty much everything you need in a rock & roll record!
Capricorn consists of the singer and guitarist Kristoffer Ekberg, bassist Pontus Blom and guitarist Peter Söderberg with a new drummer; Tomas Eriksson from Imperial State Electric and Captain Murphy.
Capricorn was founded in 2015 by Kristoffer Ekberg, who was nominated for “Stämskruven”, an award given in memory of Robert “Strängen” Dahlqvist. Both Kristoffer and bassist Pontus Blom played on Strängen’s record “Rock På Svenska” and played on the Strängen tribute gigs at Debaser and Sweden Rock Festival!
The band comments:
– It feels amazing to release this record on Wild Kingdom / Sound Pollution, a label with a lot of great albums under their belt throughout the years. It is a big honor to be a part of their legacy!
And how does it sound? Picture rock ´n´ roll with influences from; Detroit, New Jersey, Muscle Shoals, Tom Petty, Jackson Brown, Bob Seger, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
The album is mixed by Frans Hägglund at Riddarborgen (Imperial State Electric, Last Days Of April, Nicklas Frisk, The Datsuns) and mastered at Redmount Studios by Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna, Robyn, The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electric, The Datsuns).
For The Restless, the sequel to the 2019 debut album Soul Engine. For The Restless is Capricorn’s first album on the Wild Kingdom label and is set for release on March 25, 2022.
