Vocalist/bassist Admiral Nobeard commented: “Ahoy scallywags and asshats! There's been a bit of a change in the ’buckle rank as of late. We have recently parted ways with drummer Captain Crashride. He brought us five years of service and utter shenanigans, and we wish him nothing but the best in combating that extreme outbreak of scurvy. With that being said, we now have a new drummer stepping up to fill the boots and more, so to speak, and that man be none other than Bootsmann Collins. He's a killer drummer so we couldn't be more stoked to have him aboard. Please give him a warm welcome with yar internet shit-talk and utter disgust for everything piratical. We wouldn't have it any other way.”
Swashbuckle is currently recording its second album for Nuclear Blast Records at The Sound of Revolution Studios in Ewing New Jersey. Len Carmichael, with whom the band worked on Back To The Noose, will engineer the record once again. The new album, entitled Crime Always Pays, is set to be unleashed in the Summer of 2010!
