One of the most exhilarating new forces on the global rock scene, Capital Theatre create the rare kind of rock music that triggers both raw catharsis and intense reflection. In the making of their debut album A Hero’s Journey, the New Zealand-based trio mined inspiration from Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces, using that seminal study of the archetypal hero as a lens for exploring the human condition in chaotic times. Made with legendary producer Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Megadeth, Steve Vai), the result is a truly singular body of work, powerfully illuminating yet viscerally thrilling.
“The hero’s journey is the blueprint for so many great stories of our time, and so we decided to map out the album based on that framework,” says Capital Theatre frontman Adam Stevenson. “It begins at the status quo, then moves through coming-of-age and the call to adventure, the trials and tribulations and then finally the moment of triumph over adversity. It was such rich territory to write against, and ended up giving us this amazing template for examining the human experience.”
