A Pirate Stole My Christmas


´Tis the jolliest of seasons! Swedish sea dogs YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS have come rowing through rough seas and salty winds to steal Christmas in the most swashbuckling of ways. Wrapped in the swag of pirate folk rock, the newly interpreted, grim covers of beloved Christmas classics on A Pirate Stole My Christmas (out December 3, 2021 via Napalm Records) draw the listener into a dark underworld of blood and bones! YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS put their shanty and pirate folk infused spin on Christmas tunes like “Twelve Days Of Christmas” and the captivating album opener “Ring The Bells”. The well-known classic “Oh Christmas Tree” gets a new coat of paint when YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS re-word it to “Oh Cannonball” - most definitely making Christmas eve a special occasionfor the most beautiful time of the year. “Drawn and Quartered” features a dancing, dangling pirate as he experiences a curious macabre Christmas marvel, whilst “Deck and Hull” captivates with a frenetic tavern-like atmosphere and a beguiling female voice meeting...
