Going through our merch boxes, we noticed that we have a ton of stuff, little odds and ends that needs to go to make room for new stuff. This is the chance of a lifetime to get a discounted bag of crap that no one else wanted. Every package will have buttons, stickers, a t-shirt, and a CD. The price is discounted from what it would be at the merch table, so we both win. It’s like a garage sale that you don’t get to rummage through before you buy something.
Here’s how it’ll work: you give us $15 (plush shipping) and tell us your shirt size. We send you a package that we stuff at random from our odds and ends box and we all go on with our lives happier because we both have something we didn’t have yesterday. We can promise that there’ll be way more than $15 worth of stuff in the bag, but we’re sitting on a lot of stuff that needs to go, so everyone walks away happy.

We’d like to announce that have completed work on their fourth studio album “The Privateer”. The album contains 10 all original tracks, some of which people who have seen our stage show recently may be familiar with. Though there is a lot of nautically themed songs, most everything sits well within the subject matter that they are noted for; war, loss, depression, drinking and tragedy. This will be our second record to be distributed by East Grand Record Company, following
the successful 2013 release of “Have You Been Drinking?”.
The tracks are a great mix of our take on various styles of music, ranging from western, to pop, and not excluding our own brand of storytelling heavy folk tunes. One thing we have strayed from our regular formula on is the title track of the album, which is a 16 minute epic about a tragedy at sea, it’s like nothing we’ve done before, but sits very comfortably within out catalog.
The album release is planned for August 11, 2015 and we’ll begin presale on June 5th.

With nine classic albums under their belt, the band experienced a tremendous surge in popularity upon the release of their 10th album, The Black Irish. It was voted Best Punk Album at The Independent Music Awards (USA), and the band’s hit song “Paint The Town Red” was featured in the climactic final fight scene of Academy Award winning film The Fighter. The band was determined to follow-it up with an even bigger, better sound. Their 11th studio album, Angels & Devils, certainly rose to the challenge. It was the 2012 winner of Best Irish Punk Album, as voted by leading worldwide Irish Punk authorities Shite N Onions (USA), Paddy Rock Radio (USA), Punk.ie (Ireland) and Vandala Concepts (Canada). It made the top 100 new releases on iTunes worldwide, and the top 10 in Germany.
