Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly announce new single and tour (2010)

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly

Story by Jack Foley

GET Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. are set to release the first single from their new album on August 9, 2010 .

Described as a “dance-floor masterpiece”, Collapsing Cities – a collaboration with Shy FX – will be available on their new label Cooking Vinyl.

The release features two exclusive tracks, Abandon Ships on the 7” vinyl version, and a cover of Justice’s D.A.N.C.E on the digital version.

Sam Duckworth says about Collapsing Cities: “I’ve been working on and off with Shy FX for about two years and if I’m going to do a track like this – kind of big beat, slightly slower than jungle but quite up-tempo – then he should be the guy to do it with.

“It’s about two visions of what people think poverty is. If all the buildings fell down we’d all be alright but what would be the ethos we should take – that of community or that of greed?”
