Sail away with the most authentic pirate rock masterpiece since the golden age of the dreaded sea-pillagers!
Batten down the hatches! Swedish sea pillagers YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS will capsize your ship with their third single “Rowing With One Hand” from the upcoming album Hostis Humani Generis, to be released on February 7, 2020 via Napalm Records. Along with an atmospheric audiovisual, YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS present another snapshot straight from the pirate capital Nassau.
In the cinematic video, the Swedish pirates prepare the great escape from court and fight for their freebooter rights, clashing with the upscale bourgeoisie. Unmistakably folky, charming and with a bunch of drunken humor, YE BANISHED PRIVATEERS draws you into their maritime universe. “Rowing With One Hand” presents the hard life of pirates on the wild ride through the ancient times.
This intense sing-along hymn and its catchy rhythm lets the listener take part in the ferocious side of the pirates and lets them flee in a cheerful frenzy from the clutches of decency. They find their way in the storm, setting course for the next adventure and keep fighting for their rebellious freedom.
