MUSIC NEWS: Bokassa Reveal New Single ‘Captain Cold One’
Bokassa have revealed their new single Captain Cold One, taken from their forthcoming album Crimson Riders.
“Captain Cold One is another character in Bokassa’s ever growing character universe,” explains frontman Jørn. “Captain Cold One follows in the footsteps of the Hellbilly Handfisher, the Crocsodile Dundee, and our ever mythical Immortal Space Pirate. The Captain is a man who lives for the weekend, and every day is a weekend for Captain Cold One! He’s your friend with a devil on his shoulder, he’s the lovable anti-hero, he’s the person voted most likely to not succeed at his graduation, and he is (most importantly) a man who lives like it’s Friday even though it’s only Monday! Musically it’s everything from a hardcore Beastie Boys verse to a pop-punk woah-extravaganza-chorus to a Slayer-esque metal breakdown. I wrote the song after hearing a radio special about songs with woooahs in them, and decided to write the most epic woooah song out there.”
Crimson Riders is due for release on 21st June, available to pre-order HERE.
See Bokassa live at one of their remaining dates supporting Metallica.
