After multiple premature CD release shows, the wait is finally over for the new Capgun Coup release. “Contextual Doom,” the band’s third album on ORG Music was officially released yesterday and is available to the masses beyond Omaha. It’s a great rock ‘n’ roll cut and everybody should buy the album here. I’m sure we will start seeing these t-shirts available for purchase in the near future before the band takes off for a month-long L.A. residency in the next few weeks.

A few weeks after Capgun Coup premiered their video, “My Boredom is Bored” with Hear Nebraska, they fired back with a new release. This time, the Capgun boys chose to debut their video “Q&A” with the Vinyl District. We’re delighted to see these guys pushing out videos for their third studio album, Contextual Doom, which will be released May 8 on ORG Music. To watch the video, click here.

Local filmmaker and musician Nick Fackler took a crew and a few cameras to Ebando Village in Gabon, Africa. There, Fackler would live amongst the local villagers, study the cultures’ ways of religion and spiritual healing, and indulge on a customary, insanely hallucinogenic plant called iboga. Evidently the plant can somehow overcome addictions and illnesses, but it sounds like a vicious two-day escapade that I personally could not justify paying the ticket to ride.
Nonetheless, I am very curious about how Fackler’s latest film, Sick Birds Die Easy, will turn out. To learn more about Fackler’s experience, read the interview with Fackler here.

She’s a lewd, crude, rude… misguided dude. She also has a huge herp on her upper lip. Herpe Betty is a new webseries created by Harrison Martin and Michelle Murphy that follows the tale of a young, haphazard spinster on her quest for primordial love. The inaugural episode of the series features cast members from Omaha bands such as Tilly and the Wall, The Faint, Icky Blossoms, Capgun Coup and STDZ. Hop on over to the site to read the interview with Murphy and Martin and see the episode here.

Capgun Coup's frontman Sam Martin accompanies HN's Steven Ashford and Thomas Yim on a trip to the rolling hills of Hanscom Park in South-Central Omaha. Shot in the back of an old, brick apartment complex on 30th and Pacific, Sam delivers a slow, spooky folk original with his song, “Morbid Masters,” that gives listeners an eerie chill that emulates the chill weather experienced with shooting this video. To see the video, click here.

Nebraska’s creative and artistic pool flows deep. Your case-in-point can be found with musicians in Capgun Coup and The Benningtons, who teamed up to produce this short film, which you should watch over your lunch break.

‎Team Love Records band Capgun Coup dodged beer bottles, tree-swingers and crappy guitars on their way through a new song in their Midtown Omaha backyard. Feel the heat in this new Love Drunk video.

The guys may not have their Team Love label, but they’re wired to make it happen. See them tonight, midnight, at Brother’s in Omaha.
