PIRATE COPY EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE!
Unruly punk rock quartet PIRATE COPY are plotting a fresh journey of rambunctious shenanigans, commencing with the launch of the new video ‘Reckless Alice’, premiered exclusively with Vive Le Rock and taken from the band’s forthcoming album, Swashbuckle & Swagger, out on Friday 26 October via Black Sail Records.
Says frontman Cap’n Kernow’, “‘Reckless Alice’ is based on the real-life story of Alice Whelan, who took misadventure to a whole new level by drunkenly commandeering a ferry in Torquay while attempting to escape the police! The song incorporates quotes from her subsequent trial, while the visually-stunning video, courtesy of Purple Knif, sees The Reckless One reimagined as ruthless bandit seeking to liberate Pirate Copy of their ill-gotten gains!”
Cleverly merging the vigour of punk rock to the buccaneering backstory that underpins their Cornish heritage, Pirate Copy have caused a stir across the South West and beyond, leaving a plethora of livewire gigs, indomitable fun and memorable songs in their wake.
Although based in Cornwall, the band have made regular jaunts across the land, establishing themselves as festival favourites, in part thanks to the interactively inclusive mayhem of their live show. 2013’s The Shape Of Piracy To Come EP was the band’s first tangible sign of bounteous booty. Further runs of festival appearances and shows followed, including a glut of memorable trips to the capital, before a second EP, the mighty Goin’ Down A Storm, dropped in May 2015.
Now, Pirate Copy are ready to unleash their dynamite debut album Swashbuckle & Swagger, which displays a dirty dozen of devastating ditties, marinated in rum and other unmentionable fluids, ready to attack your eardrums. Vive Le Rock‘s Dick Porter remarks about the album, “To experience Pirate Copy in full flow, as Poseidon intended, is a joy indeed. Swashbuckle & Swagger is a treasure chest of pleasures; combining live floor fillers such as ‘Somalian Pirates Suck’ and legendary set closer ‘I’m On A Boat’ with devilishly crafted new material like ‘Outlaw Pirates’, they have opened a Pandora’s box of piratical punk power.”
