He's known as Sam Duckworth to his family, but to the rest of the world he is known as (obligatory fanfare and deep voice) Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, with a few added full-stops here and there of course.
Rising to prominence in 2006 after a few independent EP releases, GCWCF became the darling of the 'NME-set' with catchy pop-twang in the shape of "I-Spy", "War Of The Worlds" and "The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager", the latter being the title of the pretty-decent debut album. A follow-up "Searching For The Hows And Whys", appeared in 2008 and sold fairly well, enough to gee our man into action and think about writing more songs.
Whaddaya know? He's gone and done just that by announcing a new (as yet untitled) new album, due for release in September, a new track for downloading AND a tasty tour.
The tour begins in September in Cambridge on the 18th and continues to Oxford (19th), Glasgow (25th), Aberdeen (26th), Newcastle (27th), Leeds (29th), Manchester (30th), Milton Keynes (2nd Oct), Birmingham (3rd), Bristol (5th) Yeovil (6th), Falmouth (8th) Portsmouth (12th) and London (13th) - all but the Oxford and London dates are on sale now, the other two go on sale at 9am on Friday. All are around £13.50 - £15.
The more eagle-eyed will have noticed that the caped-crusader is also playing a few dates before the tour kicks off in earnest - The Playground Party in Garforth, Leeds on 10th July looks like the pick of them, especially with folk-troubador Seth Lakeman topping the bill and all for £15. Three further dates in Manchester (10th Aug), London (11th), Nottingham (12th) and Edinburgh (13th) are also still up for grabs.
If you visit his website(www.getcapewearcapefly.com), you can hear (and download) a new song called "Morning Light". It's rather good and will form part of the new album.
