Comments the vocalist Chris Bowes:
OF COURSE the title of the album is a reference to “The Golden Age of Piracy”, which was a period roughly between the years 1680-1720 (depending on who you ask), during which time all the famous pirates you’ve probably heard of were doing their thing in the Caribbean. Stealing treasure, kicking the ass of the British Navy, plundering wenches, and so forth. Like all good things, this age had to come to an end, and so we’ve used that as a general theme for this album. There’s also songs about drinking and partying too.
In the coming weeks and months we’ll be giving you more details about the album, including preorder information, special editions, and other stuff…and we’ll maybe let you all hear a song if you’re good boys and girls! Until then, stay piratical!
