This Is Your Captain Speaking is a post-rock band based in Melbourne, Australia.

History[edit]

This Is Your Captain Speaking released their debut album Storyboard independently in Australia in May 2005 and quickly sold out of the first pressing.

The band was then signed to UK label Resonant Records (Do Make Say Think, Tarentel, Kepler), who re-issued the album in Europe in 2006. The band then toured Europe and the UK, including performing at Belgium’s Rhaaa Lovely Festival, where they played alongside Deerhoof, 65daysofstatic, Piano Magic, Grails and 31knots.

Storyboard received critical acclaim from around the world, with reviewers describing the album as "66 minutes of pure musical bliss."[1]

In November 2008, the band released their second album, Eternal Return, which is released on the band's own label, with digital licensing through London-based Diogenes Music.
