Captain, We're Sinking

Captain, We're Sinking are a four-piece punk band from Scranton, Pennsylvania that began in 2008. They come from the same scene that bands such as The Menzingers, Tigers Jaw, and Title Fight came from. Though they don't get as much as attention as those bands, they certainly should, because they are fucking great. Their energy is so high, yet they still craft excellently written songs with emotional/relatable aspects to them. I guess they are most comparable to The Menzingers, which isn't much of a surprise considering the fact that their vocalist/guitarist (Bobby Barnet) is brothers with Greg Barnett (The Menzingers' vocalist/guitarist). So definitely check this band out. They put out their second full-length this year with Run For Cover, and it is absolutely amazing. Though everything they've done is great, I would recommend checking out Montreal. Even though it's only two songs, those two songs are quite literally flawless. The only release I'm missing from them is their split Spraynard, so if anyone has it, feel free to share. Enjoy.
