Capture The Crown have announced their breakup. The band didn’t offer any explanations for the disbandment, but they did post the following image on all of their social media accounts:
Capture The Crown have premiered a new song titled “The Lake,” via Alternative Press. This song is from the band’s new album, which will be released later this year.
Jeffrey Wellfare said the following:
“This is the first Capture The Crown album where the band has written the album in its entirety, no help, no writers, just four band members who came together and wrote some kick ass songs. I’m so proud of the boys for all the hard work they have put into this album.
It truly shows when listening to the content. This is the best material the band has written to date. The songwriting, the content and emotion creates a special stage for the most epic roller coaster ride. Assume nothing, be surprised.”
Capture The Crown have announced the addition of new guitarist Mitch Rogers. His addition finishes off the band’s new lineup which also includes original vocalist, Jeffrey Wellfare, new bassist, Maurice Morfaw, new drummer, Ryan Seretti and new guitarist, Kyle Devaney.
The band issued the following statement:
“We would like to officially introduce our new guitarist Mitch Rogers. This completes the permanent CTC roster. We are currently writing new material and can’t wait to show you the HUGE progression this band has made musically and on all stand points. Get excited & stay tuned for upcoming news.”
Capture The Crown have parted ways with three members, including Kris Sheehan, Jye Menzies and Tyler March. The band will now continue on with original vocalist, Jeffrey Wellfare, new bassist, Maurice Morfaw, new drummer, Ryan Seretti and new guitarist, Kyle Devaney.
Wellfare issued the following statement:
Word is starting to get around that there have been changes made to Capture the Crown’s lineup. This is true, but what is also true is that we are looking forward and moving ahead full force onto the next, bigger & better chapter of Capture The Crown.
Kris Sheehan, Jye Menzies & Tyler March are no longer a part of CTC and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
This band started touring in late 2012. Since the beginning not a single member has made a single cent. From day one, the band has been in copious amounts of debt. Factors contributing to the debt: the big one is relocating from Australia to the United States. Moving a touring band across the world is a very serious undertaking and a lot of money is used in the process, think of it as a start up investment. Along with relocating, unfortunate luck with reoccurring vehicle issues on top of numerous other factors have not put us into a great place financially. With that said, not being paid or seeing any financial gains for almost 3 years is extremely rough! I would like to think that this is a HUGE contributor to the departure of these members.
Having said all of that, we are currently on the ‘Not Your American Idols Tour’. There are some new faces and personalities in the family and in all honesty it has never been better. For now we’d like to officially welcome Maurice Morfaw on bass, Ryan Seretti on drums and Kyle Devaney on guitar. For second guitar, we currently have a close friend filling those shoes and we will be announcing them shortly.
Capture the Crown have started writing new material, we have some big announcements and a whole lot on the horizon. Capture the Crown are here to stay, it’s time to finally kick some ass!
Capture The Crown have parted ways with two members. Guitarist, Jye Menzies and drummer, Tyler March have both left the band. Menzies left due to the band becoming a “negative force” in his life, and March left to pursue other interests.
Menzies issued the following statement:
“I’ve had a lot of questions lately regarding Capture The Crown. Some of you may know that I left the band after the last tour. Unfortunately, I was unable to continue to be a part of something that had become such negative force in my life. I was a founding member of Capture The Crown and put my entire life and myself into it which made my decision very difficult and saddening. The fans I met and the friends I made will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for believing in my and helping me achieve a lot of my crazy life goals. I intend to continue writing music and following my passion! If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask; I’ll answer them all honestly and to the best of my knowledge. Thank you all and see you soon.”
March issued the following statement:
“Well here goes nothing. To all that’s been asking, I have officially left Capture The Crown. It was my choice to leave the band but that doesn’t mean that I am in any way upset or on bad terms with the current members in the band. I love those guys to death and only wish them the best. The new drummer is a good friend of mine as well. My heart isn’t in metal anymore. Believe it or not I will be debuting as a pop country artist in the near future. Thanks to all the fans and everyone who made my experience in Capture amazing. I am so stoked for you guys to hear what I’m working on. Even if you don’t like country I’m positive that you will appreciate it. Thanks guys.”
Capture The Crown have released a new video for their song “Firestarter,” via Revolver. This song is from band’s new album, Reign Of Terror, which was released on August 5.
