Reviving the moniker after a lengthy hiatus, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. dug-deep to unearth his most forthcoming work in years.
Speaking about the new release, Sam Duckworth AKA Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. says:
"It's been over a year since 'Young Adult' was recorded and a good year it has been.
"The band has grown in size and in spirit, there have been mixtapes, new songs and some really fun shows.
"I wanted to convey some of the joy and energy of the live shows from 2018 and what better way than to release some of the live shows we recorded."
"The Reading/Leeds "Yung Adult" mixtape was fun to make and included some reworkings of the tracks from the album, as well as the debut of 'Try'.
"'Quite Right" was recorded just before the tour and feels like it's of the same era as the songs of 'Young Adult' but also with one foot in the new.
"It's exciting to enter this forthcoming tour with a celebration of music from throughout the year."
Sam Duckworth who is sometimes referred to as Get Cape, Cape, GCWCF and Slam Dunkworth (the latter title apparently first coined by Emmy The Great).
According to Duckworth, his original stage name came from Retro Gamer magazine, from an article about superhero games such as Batman containing the heading Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, although a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon by Bill Watterson has also been cited.
In addition to the Get Cape name, and his given name, Duckworth has released music under the moniker Recreations.
Get Cape was signed to Atlantic Records in March 2006, after playing many gigs, both with punk rock band Silverskin and as Get Cape.
As Get Cape, Duckworth has collaborated with Billy Bragg, Nitin Sawhney, Shlomo, Killa Kela, Baba Maal, Flea, Kate Nash and many others with his participation in many events for Africa Express.
"The more I listen to this album, the more I respect the fact that Sam didn't revert to his heartfelt teenage self. This is an up to date snap shot of the Get Cape story.
"He's no longer crowded in a barrage of teen angst and genre mash ups and has managed to refine his approach into making something that has heart but at the same time doesn't take itself too seriously.
"From one young adult to another, this is a relatable and enjoyable return to form."
