With just one week to go until their UK co-headline tour with Puppy kicks off, today stoner-punk scapegraces Bokassa release a new live version of infectious single “Captain Cold One”.

Bokassa frontman Jørn elaborates on the track, declaring: “"Captain Cold One" is another character in Bokassa’s ever growing character universe. Captain Cold One follows in the footsteps of the Hellbilly Handfisher, the Crocsodile Dundee, and our ever mythical Immortal Space Pirate. The Captain is a man who lives for the weekend, and every day is a weekend for Captain Cold One! He’s your friend with a devil on his shoulder, he’s the lovable anti-hero, he’s the person voted most likely to not succeed at his graduation, and he is (most importantly) a man who lives like it’s Friday even though it’s only Monday! Musically it’s everything from a hardcore Beastie Boys verse to a pop-punk woah-extravaganza-chorus to a Slayer-esque metal breakdown. I wrote the song after hearing a radio special about songs with woooahs in them, and decided to write the most epic woooah song out there”.

Bokassa fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk. Their 2017 debut album, “Divide & Conquer” was lauded by critics across the globe. Metal Hammer UK hailed it as one of the best debuts of 2017, describing them as “intense, unpretentiously creative, and relentlessly rhythmic”.

“Crimson Riders” was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian “Big Bass” Gardener. The record is out now and you can get it here.
