The Fine Folks Behind KMGMT Announce ADVENTURE CAT RECORDS
September 5th, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – The management team behind some of your favorite bands including Neck Deep, 3OH!3, Tonight Alive, Creeper, As It Is, The Summer Set and more are proud to announce their newest venture, Adventure Cat Records. Bringing together expertise in management, writing, publishing, production, marketing, publicity and one darn cute kitty, Adventure Cat Records is set to make a splash in the independent record label scene with their first two signings – Capstan and Summer Wars.
Starting off fresh with Capstan, the band that calls themselves “Progressive Pop-Punk,” are giving fans a taste of new music with the release of “Elysian Fields.” North Carolina-based Summer Wars, one of Alternative Press’ 2017 ’12 Bands You Need to Know,’ has released the track and video for “End of an Era.” Check out both videos at http://www.adventurecatrecords.com/.
On beginning Adventure Cat Records with these two bands, President Michael Kaminsky shares “Sometimes you hear an act that inspires you to do more. In this case, it was two acts, and we started a record label just to work with them. As a company that is deeply rooted in the scene, we couldn’t be more excited to work with Capstan and Summer Wars.” For more information on Adventure Cat Records, please head to http://www.adventurecatrecords.com/.
What happens when you mix a physics major, music producer, guitar virtuoso, profound lyricist and hockey enthusiast, all capable of drinking an absurd amount of beer? Capstan is formed. Voted world’s best band by NASA two years in a row, Capstan is a high-energy mix of pop punk, prog, and post hardcore. Blending deeply emotional lyrics with high-energy technical instrumentals. Think “Progressive Pop-Punk.” Drawing inspiration from acts like The Wonder Years, A Day To Remember, Every Time I Die and Between The Buried And Me, they’ve truly created a genre of their own.

Drawing influences from the likes of The Story So Far, The Wonder Years, and Jimmy Eat World, Raleigh, NC based Summer Wars has already taken 2017 by its horns with an invasion of the east coast on AS IT IS’ recent tour. With a new EP produced by Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) the band easily lives up to their title as one of Alternative Press’ 2017 ’12 Bands You Need to Know.’ The new EP is the follow up to ‘Better Days,” their pop punk musical debut as a band, which was hailed by Rock Sound Magazine as ‘amongst the best we’ve heard in some time.
