Ye Banished Privateers Present Bloody New Christmas Single
Yo ho ho… ho! Notorious fabled folk rockers Ye Banished Privateers have gathered under the Christmas tree to gift their devoted crew something swashbucklingly special this holiday season! The band is thrilled to reveal a brand new full-length album of pirate-packed Christmas favorites – A Pirate Stole My Christmas, out December 3, 2021 – interpreted in a way only your favorite Swedish scallywags could.
“In our song “Sulphur Ahoy“, we were running out of space on the album, and managed to slay two traditional carols with one stone. By stealing from the original works of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Pat-a-pan” we tell the story of a fatigued group of freedom fighters trying to get a good night’s rest before a deadly battle. The only problem is that, armed with drums and bagpipes, two assholes of the army musicians try to wake,” saisd about “Sulphur Ahoy”.
