October 18, 2021, a month ago
Capricorn is back with their second full-length album, For The Restless, offering 10 tracks of burning rock n' roll. The lineup for the new record consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Kristoffer Ekberg, bassist Pontus Blom, guitarist Peter Söderberg, and new drummer Tomas Eriksson (Imperial State Electric, Captain Murphy).
For The Restless, the sequel to the 2019 debut album Soul Engine, is Capricorn's first album to be released on Wild Kingdom, and is set for release on March 25.
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 was 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).
