CAPDOWN notched up nearly 250 gigs in 12 countries in 2000: and with it this explosive young Milton Keynes four piece have found themselves the most name-checked new band for a new generation of punk/hardcore kids across the whole European continent.
Along the way they shared stages and impressed the likes of Less Than Jake, Pennywise, Reel Big Fish, The Lunachicks, King Prawn, Snuff, Cosmic Psychos, The Slackers, The Damned, Madball, Link 80, Against All Authority, Knuckledust, 28 Days and The Toasters amongst a horde of other diverse ska/punk and hardcore acts.
Maintaining a low profile in the UK mainstream press: they have been tearing up the underground press/fanzines, and since the release of their debut album on Household Name Records 'Civil Disobedients' it been hard to avoid their name. Much of the excitement has been generated through the Internet with a host of CAPDOWN fansites starting up with fans and the band communicating direct making for packed gigs. Evidence of their chaotic gigs can seen on the 4 live CD-rom tracks on 2001 Household Name Records Sampler out now
A series of hit and run split singles kept the fans happy while the band completed their hectic touring schedule in 2000. Snatching a day off on their tour with California ska'core stars Link 80 they recorded 2 new tracks each with ace producer John Hannon (Kids Near Water, Hundred Reasons).
Early 2001- CAPDOWN took some time off during which they only did 3 sold out supports to US ska-pop all stars Reel Big Fish.
CAPDOWN returned to the full live arena in March/April with 45 date tour through the UK and Europe, including support to Less Than Jake on their sold out UK tour including a show at London
