capacities are a four-piece screamo/hardcore band from New Jersey that began in 2012. Members of this band were also in The Saddest Landscape, You And I, Black Kites, and a bunch of other great bands. Regardless of their association with other amazing bands, capacities have certainly made a name for themselves. They play intense, chaotic, and emotional screamo with pummeling force. Lyrically, they explore many social/political/philosophical themes in addition to some personal ones. Seriously, check them out if you aren't already familiar with them. They're probably one of my favourite modern screamo bands around now, they're just too fucking good. Enjoy.

One quick note: Preliminary Recording was just a sampler thing that the band first put up on their Bandcamp. It's been removed now because all of those exact recordings also appear on The Unexamined Life.
