A healthy blend of pop and punk, with just a splash of emo, Scranton band Captain We’re Sinking has been making (and sailing on) waves since their triumphant reunion in 2021. Made up of Bob Barnett and Leo Vergnetti on vocals and guitar, Zach Charette on bass, and Bill Orender on drums, the quartet started out strong back in 2006, immediately connecting with their local Scranton and Philly audiences (following the footsteps of Barnett’s brother Greg, a member of punk rock group The Menzingers). After a nine-year, three-album run, the group took time off to focus on other aspects of life and expand their own solo musical careers, however, with the release of 2021’s self titled LP, Captain We’re Sinking was officially back.
The band has been consistently performing ever since, rediscovering each other’s grooves and redefining what it means to be in a pop-punk band. Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their third record, The Future Is Cancelled, Captain We’re Sinking comes to PhilaMOCA this Sunday, July 23, joined by Five Hundred Bucks and Sun Organ. The band will be performing the record in its entirety, and will have 10 Year Anniversary special edition vinyl copies at the show.
