Formation (2010 - 2011)[edit | edit source]
Formed in early 2010, Capture The Crown quickly gained success through their YouTube Channel, and first release "You Call That a Knife? This Is a Knife!", quickly reaching three million views in under one year. Jeffrey Welfare, Jye Menzies, and Blake Ellis were all previously in another metalcore band known as Atlanta Takes State. While their music video quickly rose them to popularity in the scene, it also gained them criticism for resembling other bands in the genre. Their drummer Tyler (known by his nickname, Lone America) is the only member not from Australia, being from Pennsylvania in the United States. The other members met him online and he was later asked to join the band.
