Today sees the release of the new Caution Boy single “Silence The Screams”. It’s a hard hitting, static, mid-tempo, alternative grungy composition about “harbouring frustrations and lying to others for the sake of those around, even if this affects you in a negative way & leaves you blind to the effect it actually has on them & yourself” as the band explain.

The times are changing… and so is Caution Boy, what began as a demented, alternative punk rock “karaoke from hell” solo project; has metamorphosized into a monstrous trio, who’s only mission is to destroy stages, ear drums & the normalized standards of society. Andi Cappo on the strings & screams, Treveshan Pather on the oh so low notes & Archie Kinnon on hides & twigs.
“Silence The Screams” Is taken from their forthcoming album Alligator, which is set for release on the 10th of September 2021 via Mongrel Records.

“Silence The Screams” is very pleasing to my eardrums. It’s slightly different from Caution Boy‘s other stuff, but in a way I think it’s a step up (or forward if you really want to get technical). I’m definitely curious as fuck to find out what the rest of Alligator is going to sound like.

What started as a sardonic reference to the cheesy phrase “see you later, alligator”, turned into a ferocious animal, relentless, waiting to tear you limb from limb. The upcoming album is a near perfect resemblance to this time of pandemic we find ourselves in – everything is going to shit, but shit is still funny.
Alligator was co-produced and recorded by the band in a few days, spread over a few months from late 2020 to early 2021, with Evert Snyman (Pollinator, Ruff Majik) from Pariah Studios; in the co-producer’s driving seat, and in charge of the recording, mix and master.
