Following a victorious UK headline tour last month that culminated with a packed London gig at Islington’s Assembly Hall, GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY announces a string of dates for early 2019. As part of Independent Venue Week Get Cape… will play five shows in five days together with his extraordinary live band.
The Get Cape live show has been a must-see spectacle all year – at times amassing 14 musicians on stage including a nine-piece horn section. This juggernaut of a live performance has wowed audiences at headline shows; supporting Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls at Lost Evenings 2 at London’s Roundhouse and across the festival circuit all summer.
Speaking about the new album Sam Duckworth AKA Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. says:
“It’s been over a year since young adult was recorded and a good year it has been. The band has grown in size and in spirit, there have been mixtapes, new songs and some really fun shows. I wanted to convey some of the joy and energy of the live shows from 2018 and what better way than to release some of the live shows we recorded.”
2018 has been something of a benchmark for the Essex-based artist, with the release of this buoyant new collection a true testament to Duckworth’s re-invigorated return as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. Reviving the moniker after a lengthy hiatus, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. dug-deep to unearth his finest and most forthcoming work in years in latest studio album: Young Adult.
Catch him at the Picture House Social in Sheffield on January 31st.
