In addition, GCWCF’s Sam Duckworth will give fans an exclusive preview of his new eponymous  album on Wednesday 25th August at 7 p.m. via a web chat on UStream.

The Uprising” is the key thematic track on the album and a fine addition to the classic tradition of the plucked and passionate rock-out protest anthem. Sam Duckworth, who is Get Cape.Wear Cape. Fly., says “It’s about being in a mass of people, looking around and seeing people of all different ages and backgrounds and celebrating that solidarity of people coming together for one reason.”

After being one of the first ever acts to be championed by Radio 1's Huw Stephens at a BBC Introducing open mic session at In The City in 2005 Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., returns to the Introducing Stage at  Leeds Festival as special guest headliner.  They will play the Dance To The Radio Stage on Thurs 26th August.
