Cap­tain to re­turn

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

MUSIC Ill Starred Cap­tain, Satur­day, July 22 at Tom Price Ho­tel Mo­tel, and Thurs­day, Au­gust 3 and Thurs­day, Au­gust 17 at Whalers Restau­rant, Ex­mouth.

Ill Starred Cap­tain are re­turn­ing to the Pil­bara for a se­ries of gigs ahead of the re­lease of their up­com­ing al­bum, Get Lu­cid on the Tran­scen­den­tal.

The duo will hit stages in New­man, Port Hed­land, Tom Price and Ex­mouth this month and in Au­gust with their folk-punk “sur­fadelic” tunes.

Singer and gui­tarist Scott Bassham said the Pil­bara and Kim­ber­ley had been a huge part of the band’s tour­ing since they started tour­ing out of their home State of South Aus­tralia more than 15 years ago.

“The amaz­ing land­scapes and fan­tas­tic char­ac­ters we’ve met over the years keep us com­ing back ev­ery win­ter,” he said.

Drum­mer Justin Fran­cis said they could not wait to visit their WA friends and play some new music for their fans.

“We’ve been per­form­ing for about a decade now in WA and we’ve built a loyal fol­low­ing,” he said.

“The fans, they’ve be­come a road fam­ily.”

Fran­cis said they would be play­ing a bunch of songs that would fea­ture on their al­bum, due to be re­leased next year.

“It’s a good way to work out which songs work out live when it comes to sort­ing out track-list­ing,” he said.
