If you’re a fan of rock music, then the chances are good that you’ve happened upon Tasmanian rockers Captives supporting at least one of your favourite bands. Now, after years of paying their dues, the group is about to kick their career up another notch, announcing a number of huge milestones today.

Having spent the last few years writing, recording, and touring relentlessly, supporting the likes of Cog, The Damned, Pulled Apart By Horses, Grenadiers, Born Lion, and Shihad, and seeing plenty of airplay on triple j and Triple M, Captives have slowly been making an even bigger name for themselves, catching the eye of plenty of the Aussie music industry’s big names.

As 2017 drew to a close, Captives were able to work with their management team, Bear Parts Music, to sign some big deals that will see them sign over their work to Cooking Vinyl Publishing Australia for a worldwide publishing deal, receive distribution of their new record through Inertia, and become the newest signing with the Harbour Agency, with the group’s live shows now booked by Jess Wust.

“We are more than ecstatic about these signings,” said Captives’ vocalist Aaron Damon. “To be in partnership with flagship companies like Cooking Vinyl, Inertia and the Harbour Agency – all feeding out of the guidance of our manager Roy, this is the best start to the new year and to the release of new music coming in March!”
