Individually, the musicians making up ATC are ridiculously talented- together the talent is unreal. Without a doubt Alright The Captain are THE Hardest working band in the UK. When not booking their own gigs and tours, UK and Euro based, the band’s guitarist books other bands under the moniker of Button Pusher- and helps keep their local live scene thriving bringing in touring acts from afar and playing alongside DIY acts from their Nottingham hometown and deserving artists based elsewhere in England. Their bassist creating all the bands artwork/design being done in-house. Alright the Captain represents true hardworking passionate touring musicians. Dedicated to their love of music and uniting people with the love they share- with this new single and their forthcoming album release in tow, the men are in for another rewarding year.
“although there are a lot of bands around at the moment making Math-Rock, there aren’t many who are doing it like this. Buy the album, fill your house with mates and booze, stick it on the stereo and turn the volume up to full. You’ll see what I mean” – The 405
