Calling All Captains Announces “Nothing Grows Here” Vinyl Pressing

Canadian quintet Calling All Captains is thrilled to be bringing their infectious brand of pop punk to vinyl for the first time ever, with the pressing of their latest EP Nothing Grows Here. Originally released on February 8th, 2019, Nothing Grows Here marked the band’s Equal Vision Records debut. Fans can pre-order a copy here, and check out a brand new music video for “Fools Gold,” here.

‘Fools Gold’ is a song that comes from emotions we felt missing our friends and family at home while on tour. It was a new emotion for us to experience while we toured heavily this year off the EP,” shares lead singer Luc Gauthier. “We wanted the video to represent some of the best moments and heartfelt places in our hometown Edmonton, Alberta. It’s meant to create our distant listeners a visual of where and who we come from, showing what we miss most while we are gone.

Calling All Captains recently announced an upcoming co-headline tour with Summer Wars. The run kicks off in Lansing on October 20th, following a performance at Blackout Fest on October 19th. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, please see below or visit:

About Calling All Captains:

Supported by relentless touring and a homegrown attitude, Calling All Captains have been able to push the boundaries and limits of being a band from the Prairies of Canada.

After announcing their signing to the seminal Equal Vision Records, the group released their label debut EP Nothing Grows Here on February 8, 2019. The five-song EP was written and recorded in Edmonton, Alberta teaming up with local producer Quinn Cyrankiewicz. Contrary to the name of the EP, the band has seen an impeccable amount of growth within their home region selling out local venues, most recently supporting The Offspring in Alberta, as well breaking ground touring nationally in Canada and internationally in the UK & USA.

We’ve always been a band that did what we wanted for ourselves because we had been told for years that it didn’t matter,” explains vocalist Luc Gauthier. “Western Canada and more specifically Edmonton is not a music mecca that would ever offer us an opportunity to ‘make it’. In a way, this album was cathartic, that our hard work was worth it. In another way, it was the middle finger to everyone who doubted us and told us ‘Nothing Grows Here.’”

With an open road and a busy tour schedule, there’s no slowing down Calling All Captains. They plan to bring their emotionally energetic show to cities around the world, defeating all odds against them. The main focus is simple: release music, tour, show the world what they’ve got.
