Swashbuckle Posts New Album Update

New Jersey based thrash pirates Swashbuckle have posted up an update on the writing process for the band's upcoming, yet untitled, fourth LP and the first since 2010's "Crime Always Pays..." The band has also promised to cover the Weird Al song "Dare to be Stupid" in the next couple of weeks, as a result of the fans voting them the winner in the recent Thrash Magazine March Metal Madness. The following was posted on the band's Facebook Page:

Piratical News Update: Well folks, we've been hard (read: hardly) at work on new demos and such and recently have finished up 7 new jams that will appear on our as yet unreleased record sometime in the near future (read: end of humanity as we all know it.) The best way to describe it is - Thrashy as fuck, punky as hell, more grinds than a box of Foldgers, and the utmost weirdly epic songs under a minute and a half that songs under a minute and a half can possibly be. Expect utter shenanigans and tom foolery on this one and get ready to mosh your taints off.

We also promised you dorks that if we won Thrash Magazine's Metal March Madness, we'd grace you with a cover of Weird Al's "Dare To Be Stupid," so be on the look out for that in the next couple of weeks.

That's all folks. Now kick rocks, nerds.

I was able to tape the first few songs of Death Angel’s set for your viewing pleasure. More...
