Five years after their début EP was released to critical acclaim, The Pirate Ship Quintet have recorded their first full length album entitled ‘Rope for No-Hopers’, to be pressed courtesy of Denovali Records. The record is a compendium of pieces chosen and refined from an abundance written over the past few years, during which time the band disappeared from the live scene. The band’s fantastically talented cellist, who has played with the likes of The London Symphony Orchestra among others, recently accepted a full-time position with the National Orchestra of Wales which is based very close to the band’s home town. With all members of the group living in the same part of the UK once more and with their own small studio in the heart of Bristol they will be writing, recording and performing consistently again. The five tracks on this record move through the richly melodic foundations of contemporary classical and minimalist rock.
They’re now coming to France and Germany to present the debut album live for the first time.
You can listen to 3 pieces via www.denovali.com/thepirateshipquintet.
The preorder for the records starts on May 17th.
Thanks a lot
