Performing with.... SUGGS!!
WAKE & BREAK - NEW ALBUM THIS JULY!!!
A bit of a last minute gig at the Mercure Hotel in Cardiff saw Captain Accident & the Disasters play a Charity Event in front of the legendary Suggs! After just three songs things got unreal when he unexpectedly jumped up onto the stage to perform Toots & The Maytals classic "54-46" with us! What a legend!! See the video here:
Aswad Main Support!
Super-stoked to have landed a support slot with reggae giants and personal heroes ASWAD! This is a solo-acoustic show. Friday feb 6th at The Globe, Cardiff. Mind=Blown!!
After an incredibly short, but ridiculously enjoyable set at Boomtown Fair last year it is great news to confirm that Captain Accident & The Disasters will be back in 2015!
Rumour has it we will be on at a more sociable hour too! Make sure you come along and see the full set!! Of course, stage invasions & acapella singalongs are still massively encouraged ;)
Stompin' Thru twilight Official Video!
Brand New Video uploaded for "Stompin' Thru Twilight". Taken from The Captain's 2nd album "Slippin Up" This video was directed by Paul Mallison. Massive shout out to everyone involved in makin this video! You can watch the video here:
Looking to get quite a few videos completed this year. Watch this space!
Solo Acoustic Cover Project
Captain Accident will be embarking on a little acoustic cover project throughout 2015, covering popular songs in an acoustic soul & reggae style! For example, "Power Of Love" by Huey Lewis & The News (From the Back To The Future Soundtrack:
2014! An Incredible Year!!
2014 was an incredible year for Captain Accident & The Disasters! Massive love to everyone that has been involved over the past year. The year included include two great tours, both in the UK and in Europe. Played a load of new countries including Slovenia, Italy, France & Austria as well as getting back to Netherlands & Belgium. Gaining a main support slot with Less Than Jake was pretty damn mind-blowing! Another highlight was Boomtown Fair - after being scheduled a 3am slot on a stage which hada major power cut, the night was looking doomed! BIG LOVE to everyone that came along, rammed the tent out and did a stage invasion to sing acappella through the power cut!
2015 will see some changes in the CA&theD camp. Sadly Kai & Sam have decided to part ways - Good luck in their next venture - It's been wicked having them on board for so long and they will definitely be missed! Steven Johns will be taking over on guitar duties as of 2015 and also looking to bring a percussionist into the mix. Official keyboard player is still tbc.
That's right!! This summer will see a brand new album "Wake & Break" straight from the Captain's Quarters into your earholes! Expect a mixture of rootsy, soulful reggae with a hint of rock, dancehall & rocksteady!! This one's gonna be BIG!! Seriously can't wait for you all to hear it! Already in the process of booking up the album tour. Lots of festival bookings in place and a nice run of dates lined up in the UK & Mainland Europe. Expect to hear some new songs creeping into throughout the year as the songs are introduced to the live set... Mega excited to get this one out!!

BBC Radio 1Xtra - Airplay!!
Big massive shout out to the one and only Sir David Rodigan for playing tracks from Wake & Break on his Radio 1xtra Sunda Reggae show!! After receiving some great fredback on the album, it was a real pleasure to hear him playing "Setting The Record Straight" and "Same Style" in and amongst some of the Captain's favourite reggae bands and artists!
Contact was first made with David Rodigan back at Secret Garden Party 2011 when a CD was launched onto the stage during one of his sets. He picked it up, enjoyed what he heard and played it on his Kiss FM show!
Absolutely delighted to officially launch the Captain's 3rd album "Wake & Break" today!! As of this moment, you can now get hold of the album digitally from all major digital music sites and also physically from Amazon, Big Cartel and of course at gigs!
