Editor’s Note:  Capstan drummer Scott Fisher talks mental health, their latest album “Separate”, dogs, and coping with anxiety and drumming techniques on the Madness To Creation Podcast.  “Separate” was released July 23rd via Fearless Records and the album is whimsical one moment and absolutely brutal the next moment.  Because of this, Capstan has built quite the underground following by sounding pop/punk while incorporating sick breakdowns while writing thought-provoking lyrics about relationships, mental states and reflection.  In this album, a lot of the songwriting was based on the guitarist’s divorce and the emotions he was feeling from the separation and divorce of his wife.  It’s a record that so many people can relate to and “Separate” catapults Capstan to the next tier.  Fans can find Capstan on Facebook and their official website.
