Ben Stiller’s high school band to release first new music in 36 years
10 Oct, 2018
Capital Punishment reissued their one and only album last month
Ben Stiller’s high school band will release their first new music in 36 years next month, it has been announced.
The actor was a member of Capital Punishment while studying at New York’s Calhoun School in the 1980s. The noise band played no gigs under the name and only released one album in the form of ‘Roadkill’.
He continued: “I remember feeling like ‘I just wanna get through this and actually be able to play something that’s usable.’ […] I wasn’t really that good at playing the drums, which you can pick up if you listen. You don’t even have to listen that closely to get that.”
Stiller’s bandmates included documentarian Kriss Roebling, professor of Czech literature Peter Zusi, and justice of the Supreme Court of Arizona Peter Swann.
