Welcome to Captain Black Beard's official website!
Here's the first video/song from our coming album, a the track called "Somebody". On the 23rd of May we're releasing our sophomore album "Before Plastic" on Dead End Exit Records (a division of RoastingHouse) and Sound Pollution Distribution. The album contains 11 melodic kick ass-rock tracks and also features guest appearances by Bruce Kulick (KISS, Union, Grand Funk Railroad) and Mats Karlsson (220 Volt, The Summit). Check it out!!
In the new issue of Sweden Rock Magazine you'll find an interview with Robert Majd, a review of the new album and for everyone who subscribes there'll be a free Captain Black Beard EP. The EP features four songs from the first album as well as a live version of "New York City". It will probably hit the stores next week (Sabaton on the cover). Check it out!
Here's a quote from the review:
"Ill-mannered and charming hitseeking rock like it was made by KISS, Billy Idol and Pat Benatar - together and in their prime." SWEDEN ROCK MAGAZINE (rating 8/10)

We're proud to announce our participation in this year's Hard Rock Hell AOR Festival in Wales!! This three day festival will be headlined by UFO. We are playing on Thursday the 20th of March.
After that we're heading to Wakefield where we'll be opening for one of the best singers in rock, Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, Alcatrazz, MSG, Impellitteri) and then we're playing in Chelmsford, Essex at the Asylum with the mighty Last SuperHeroes.
But the fun starts already next week when we're playing with The Spin (who's also playing with us in the UK) at Pitcher's Uppsala.
Thanks to all our friends and fans who rocked with us in Södertälje. Space Elevators played a great set and we will do more shows with them next year.
In the latest issue of the Södertälje-based entertainment magazine NEWZ, there is an interview with Robert Majd about the gig in Södertälje and the new album. Check it out here.
Oh, and Heavy Christmas & Happy New Year!!!
Last Saturday we did a gig for the Woken team at the annual Wokfest. It was a blast and it was the first gig with our new guitarist Christian Ek.
We've parted ways with Kevin due to reasons that are just too bizarre to get into. However, his contribution was minimal so the new album won't be affected at all. Christian is a better fit in every way. He has recorded a few blistering solos for the album that we're finally done recording! Now it's time to mix it with a release expected this coming autumn.
Thanks to all our friends and fans that rocked with us at Pub Anchor! The place was packed and we had a great time. Special thanks to Anders Tengner for the introduction and to our hard working crew. For more pictures go to our facebook-page.
Today is the last day in the studio for a while. In June we'll be back to add more vocals, some overdubs and mixing. It all sounds great but have taken a little longer than expected. But don't worry, this album sure will be worth the wait!
This weekend we're going to Gothenburg to film a video for the song "Somebody" with the mighty 11 Frames. Gonna be awesome!!
In April we're making a music video for our first single "Somebody" from the upcoming album. It will be made by 11 Frames Productions who have made a bunch of awesome videos. Check them out on youtube.
On the 8th of May (at Pub Anchor in Stockholm) we'll be throwing a release party for the single where we'll premiere the video and of course perform live.
Don't forget to check out our facebook-page where we're keeping you updated with pictures and stuff from the studio. As we speak Victor is laying down the drums... HARD!
Captain Black Beard would like to wish all of our friends and fans a happy new year! 2012 was a good one but 2013 will be even better. We've got our new CD coming out. The songs are all written and sounds great. There are plans for a big release party as well. See you in 2013!!
Here it is "New York City" from our upcoming new CD, performed live at Summer Nights Rock Fest. Enjoy!!
Soon we'll be uploading a second live-video from "Summer Nights Rock Fest". This time it's a song called "New York City" that will be featured on our upcoming album. In other words, it's a little taste of what's to come. Enjoy and share it with your friends!
We just had a meeting with producer David Castillo about the new CD. If everything goes according to plan, we'll begin recording on January 21st. There's plenty of great songs, riffs and ideas being worked on at the moment and we're confident that we'll be able to make an even better album this time around.
Here it is... "Don't Turn Your Back On Love", live from Summer Nights Rock Fest, enjoy!!
