Calling All Captains are an insanely talented pop-punk band who hail from Edmonton, Alberta. After announcing their signing to the seminal Equal Vision Records, the group released their label debut EP ‘Nothing Grows Here’ on February 8, 2019. To overwhelmingly positive reception which led to the band touring nationally in Canada and internationally in the UK & USA.
I recently caught up with Luc Gauthie (Vocals) to discuss 'Nothing Grows Here', their upcoming LP, 'Chasing Ghosts - Reimagined' and his top ten scene albums...

Firstly, I have to ask this at the moment, how have you guys been coping in the lock-down, what kind of things have you been up to since the lock-down came into effect.
We had a bit of a quarantine period when it all first started. But we kept our distancing practices and we only went to the grocery store and home. Like, super holed-in. But we’ve all been staying safe and healthy so we decided to get back in the jam space and start finishing the latest demo tunes for the LP. As for right now, we’re recording five days a week with QuinnCMusic. Its been a great time and the studio itself has made precautions during the COVID Crisis.
How did you get into writing and creating music? Was there a decisive moment or event that you remember that made you stop and think, wow, THIS is what I want to do with my life?
