New 7inch, "Drawn And Quartered", out on December 1st!
YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS are already well known for their singalong hymns and unmistakably folksy tunes, and now explore the less-traveled waters of yuletide tuneage! With a stiff sea breeze, a wink of the eye and a dose of bloody, dark humor, the pirates prepare for the freezing cold of winter!
YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS on the new single: “In YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS, for the last decade we have had a yearly tradition of defiling a Christmas classic. It started as an internal joke, never intended for an audience outside of the band. Now here we are today, releasing our 2020 annual adaptation on a metal label, haha! This year, it is the traditional carol "Hosanna in Excelsis (Ding Dong Merrily on High)" that has been dragged to the chopping block to be hung, drawn and quartered beyond recognition. We doubt that we will hear this version being sung by your average christmas choir anytime soon though."
The two-track EP presents another stunning, adventurous, yet bloody side of YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS. “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 raspy pirate chanting. YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS tug the listener through dreary winter days and prepare them for the most eerily beautiful time of the year.
