First published in Night Life

STOURBRIDGE rockers Of Kings and Captains are celebrating after launch of their debut single All We Have.

The punk rockers burst on to the scene last year and have begun to build a solid fanbase based on powerful live performances.

A busy summer schedule included big shows around the UK and airplay on Kerrang Radio, all of which attracted the attention of industry insiders including DJ and music writer Emma Scott, who said: "There is nothing at all that you can't enjoy about this band."

Of Kings and Captains are signed to Glasgow label BYmonster Records and the single has been produced by Editors studio man Gavin Monaghan and mastered by Dave Mitson whose credits include The Rolling Stones and Michael Jackson.

The track is described as guitar heavy pop-rock along the lines of early Jimmy Eat World which combines lead singer and guitarist Luke Wassell's distinctive vocals with riffs from lead guitarist Joshua Lomas backed up by rhythm section Dean Greatbatch and Kieran Lock provide.

All We Have was released on April 16 and the band marked the milestone with a packed gig at Brierley Hill venue Vagabonds on April 21.

The single is available for download through the usual outlets.
