We come from an island. Not your typical Caribbean type place surrounded with palm trees and coconuts, this is a convict island. In the 1800’s somebody came up with a great idea to throw all the dregs of society onto a wooden boat and ship them off to the other side of the world. Around 200 years later and here we are; a punk rock band by the name of "Captives".

Captives have featured in "Rolling Stone Magazine", have had film clips played on rage and Channel V, been played on Triple J and Triple M, and have toured the country a number of times.

"The visceral thrill of being throttled by razor-sharp guitars, slapped around the head by thundering drums and screamed at by a man gargling glass" - Rolling Stone Magazine

"Like a champion greyhound exploding from the gate with the fluffy bunny already torn to shreds in its jaws. It's a sound that kicks you in the back of the skull with every drum beat, slices at your eardrums with every guitar lick, and tears at the back of your throat with every shriek." - Channel V

"Captives are arguably one of the most badass bands to walk out of Tasmania in the past decade" - Matt Doria
