about

Armellodie Records is proud to present "Sounds Mean", the second full-length album from Sheffield’s best kept secret, Kill The Captains.

Leon Carter (Vocals, Guitar), Ric Booth (Guitar, Vocals), Giles Robinson (Bass) and Paul Collins (Drums) are the honourable Captains. "Sounds Mean" sees the band ramp up their brand of new-wave pop and suspense-filled rock’n’roll with shout-along choruses, fizzing dual-guitars and propulsive rhythmic skulduggery.

You can Pre-order "Sounds Mean" now on totally lush 180g heavy vinyl which also comes with the full album on CD.

Just cos we live to give we'll also send on a full album download link the week prior to the release date, and give you a free instant download of lead single, 'Disco Nazi', when you Pre-order.

So what are you waiting for...? Mutiny!

Track Name: Umami
Been sick in my mouth
Can't stand the taste of it
Blue cheese and broccoli
The umami mocking from deep in my gut
And the Peking duck
Best not to talk about it
I'm still spitting feathers about the bill

I gorged on butterflies and sparrow wings
But the sweetest thing
Is the swan that's still repeating
Stuffed full of fifty pound notes
Now I need a bigger boat
I'll never skip dessert

They swept up at my table
Brushed crumbs from under my feet
Broke bread and poured me drinks
The stink of desperation hung uncomfortably
As my waste broke free
Best not to talk about it
Because I'm still spitting feathers about the bill

And there's movement downstairs
Someone's cleaning up the mess
But what bothers me
Is who will clean me up
When I soil my dress
It's my Sunday best
I'll never skip dessert

Umami gets what umami wants
That's the rules
And umami tastes how umami tastes
Don't be fooled
Such unsavouriness has no place at my table
Track Name: Refutenic
All Hail, all Hail to the new emperor
He doesn't wear any clothes
He kicks the stone
He kicks the stone to see it travel
It never reaches the end
A month of games
A month of games to mark the occasion
I don't want to play
Lays out his plans
Lays out his plans
To build a future
And I refute it thus

They threw me off
They threw me off the tallest building
To watch me fly
They dropped me in
They dropped me in the deepest well
And I can't swim
Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I
I won't confess it
Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I
And I refute it thus

Rip out my heart
Rip out my heart and see it beating
It beats to the drum
Tear out my voice
Tear out my voice and hear it screaming
I won't confess it
Screw my thumbs and stretch my limbs and I
I won't repeat it
Screws my thumbs and stitch my limbs and I
I will refute it thus

I won't repeat it, won't confess it
I will deny it, I won't accept it
I won't repeat it, I won't confess it
I will refute it thus
Track Name: The Trial
Your prescription is ready
Make your way to the waiting room
Your feedback is valuable
We'll swipe your loyalty card
See you next time
Enjoy your medicine
Swallow it whole
It will cure your contempt
If you do what you’re told

It was tested on animals
With near matching DNA
If you have a reaction
Use the survey to have your say
See you next time
Enjoy your medicine
Swallow it whole
It will cure your contempt
If you do what you’re told

Your lungs might collapse
But that's a one in a million chance
It's a small price to pay
I'm sure we all agree
See you next time
Enjoy your medicine
Swallow it whole
It will cure your contempt
If you do what you’re told

Expect mild inertia and bouts of nausea
Lack of appetite and loss of libido
Pangs of regret and visions of demons
A new personality for each of the seasons
A rattling cough and shooting chest pains
Cauliflower ears and needles in the brain
A rattling cough and shooting chest pains
Cauliflower ears and needles in the brain
Expect mild inertia and bouts of nausea
Lack of appetite and loss of libido
Pangs of regret, visions of demons
A new personality for each of the seasons
Track Name: Share The Load
You are the rogue nation
And I'm the task force
Lets start with embargo
Undermine your beliefs
Cut off air supply
Blockade and crusade you

You're the uncultured
And I'm democracy
Lets take a vote you'll see
And you can buy our planes
I might let you fly them
Share the love by the payload

Hands up
Hand it over
You think it's yours
Because you live there

You are the civil unrest
And I'm the resolution
Arm ourselves up to the eyeballs
You can fly my flag
I might let you burn it
Share the love by the payload

You're the uncultured
And I'm democracy
Lets take a vote you'll see
And you can buy our planes
I might let you fly them
Share the love by the payload

Hands up
Hand it over
You think it's yours
Because you live there
Track Name: Disco Nazi
Shake your haircuts
Blow out your bulbs
Keep rotating disco flashlight
Your arena
Take centre stage
Your own every inch of that space go out and flaunt it
It's your birth right
Don't be denied
Time for a rewind you may not want it but you need it
The full reverse
Keep repeating overheating

Say you want more of the four to the floor
You got it
Harder and faster again and again
It’s yours
It's what you were born to do, what you were born to do
The meaning of your existence on the dance floor

Act like you mean it
Don't phone it in
Who the hell do you think you are?
John Travolta? It's not the movies
It's a war out there
Don't dare slow it down
Keep up momentum
Dig up your totem
Hop, skip and jump to the bumps in the night
You feeling freaked yet
We haven't peaked yet
Keep returning
Always yearning

Shake your haircuts
Blow out your bulbs
Keep rotating disco flashlight
Your arena
Take centre stage
Your own every inch of that space go out and flaunt it
It's your birth right
Don't be denied
Time for a rewind you may not want it but you need it
The full reverse
Keep repeating overheating

Say you want more of the four to the floor
You got it
Harder and faster again and again
Its yours
It's what you were born to do, what you were born to do
The meaning of your existence on the dance floor
Track Name: The Taking Of
What became of the summer?
A year passed through a sieve
Broke my mind into component parts
Debris scattered on my back lawn

Senses drained of hurting
In a needle thread
Loop it back and start again
Hum a sub bass note
And dream of worlds far away

Do whatever that is asked of you
Duty bound by the blood you share
Hold esteem, love and suffer
Before you're ready the life is gone


Senses drained of hurting
In a needle thread
Loop it back and start again
Hum a sub bass note
Fertilise the pockets of posies, poppies and roses
Nests that have flown, legacy sewn

On these shoulders encumbered
Gravity shapes a crooked back
Twists into a question mark
Begs of who why we have to lose

Senses drained of hurting
It can't hurt you anymore
Hum a sub bass note
Fertilise the pockets of posies, poppies and roses
Nests that have flown, legacy sewn
Track Name: Nowbiter
You came
You saw
You conquered
Felt admired
Desired
Not by least
All and sundry
Man or beast

In and around
Your home town
You're like a minor celebrity
You'll storm the cities
Loan some real estate on a settee
It's yours for the next hour

You came
You saw
Felt ecstatic
Yet distracted
Elastic
Stretched to breaking
To prove that you're not faking

Fell in love with your reflection
Came across as Oedipal
Won't you tell it like you see it?
Wrestle with your inner child
Tried to kill and fuck your parents
Tore a chunk from the bad apple
Prone to spouting psychobabble
About the weight with which you're saddled
Feeling unfulfilled, unfulfilled
Your guts have spilled

In and around
Your home town
You're like a minor celebrity
You'll storm the cities
Loan some real estate on a settee
It's yours for the next hour

Fell in love with your reflection
Came across as Oedipal
Won't you tell it like you see it
Wrestle with your inner child
Try try try tried to kill and fuck your parents
Tore a chunk off the bad apple
Prone to spouting psychobabble
About the weight with which you're saddled
Feeling unfulfilled, unfulfilled
Your guts have spilled
Track Name: Safety Words
Burning the mood
Picture book style
Make sure the noose isn't too tight
French polishing
What does this mean?
So many rules
To the obscene

No I won't believe in
Any system that is closed
Now step on my throat

Undo the noose
So I can breathe
But leave me hanging
Gives me time to think

No I won't believe in
Any system that is closed

Put your weight on my throat
Put your weight on my throat

No I won't believe in
Any system that is closed
Now step on my throat
No I won't believe in
Any system that is closed
Now step on my throat
