Dead Smiling Pirates
Dead Smiling Pirates
This take on life is bound to appeal to young and old alike, with the prerequisite being your own punkrock like attitude and undying nonconformist view of life itself with dead aim at the modern day corporate establishment. If you feel this way join the club and give the music a good listen. In 2007 Dead Smiling Pirates released their debut album ”Dead Smiling Pirates” in Denmark (Gateway Music Aps.) and in USA (CD baby inc.) and played a release tour in Denmark. In 2008 the first single ”Strictly Ballroom” had airplay in numerous countries and was the winner of Broardjam's college radio contest.
”Strictly Ballroom” was also selected to be on three different CD collections in the US together with other selected bands and artists from different parts of the world. The band made a press release about the debate on the subject illegal copying and streaming of music. They said that their single was now free to download. “The music industry has lost anyway so we might as well go the opposite way and give out our single for no cost what so ever!” After the free downloads the band got a lot of positive feedback and their 2nd single “I 18” went on rotations in Germany.
In 2009 the bass player of Dead Smiling Pirates Lasse Hansen left the band going in other directions on his musical path. The band started looking for a new member, but Kim the lead singer, got a heavy back injury and they had to put the band on hold for 6 months. Erik the drummer of Dead Smiling Pirates had to arrange all the outside band related connections, while Kim was at home waiting for an operation. In the fall when Kim was back on his feet, regaining his strength the band went back on the scene playing several gigs with the guest star bass player (and technician on their debut album) Frans Lindell. In 2010 Dead Smiling Pirates were promoted by Bad Beat Booking and they played many gigs with their newly discovered bass player Barnardo Fesh.
Finally the band was ready to record their 2nd album and they began with all the preparations. When the tracking of drums and guitars were done the new bass player was in Holland. Then the bad news came around. Bernardo had to move back to his home country Portugal.
With guidance from Mattis (Bad Coffee Studio) Kim recorded the bass on all of the 13 album tracks. But when all recordings were finished the band got very sad news. The Producer Lars Overgaard Christensen (Medley Studio) who was going to produce the album had suddenly died, only 52 years old. After a break from the studio the guys started working with Mattis and together they mixed and produced the album in Bad Coffee Studio. In 2011 Dead Smiling Pirates finished their 2.
album and the master was done by Flemming Hansson Jr. (Sweep Studios & Mastering). The band started looking for a new baseplayer and soon they hooked up with Rasmus Christensen who besides rocking the bass also rocks as the 2nd vocalist. Read more on Last.fm.
