Pirate themed thrashers Swashbuckle have revealed the cover art for their upcoming album "Back to the Noose." The art can be viewed here. Swashbuckle also issued the following statement about the artwork:
"Aye, we pirates three commissioned the likes of the finest artisan we could scour amoungst the blackhearts of digital designers for the artwork for "Back to the Noose". Adam Vehige is his name, and kicking conceptual ass is his game. We brought this legend of graphical creation our "Back to the Noose" concept of Captain Crotchrot (our recurring decaying mascot miscreant) breaking free of the gallows to join an intense cannon warfare battle upon the ocean's blue. Adam accepted our payment of stolen gold shillings and doubloons (aye, blood money, and cursed it be) and rendered us some brutal cover art. If ye be seekin' nautical nonsense and high-seas hijinx, vicious splash-n-thrash attack and malicious moshing madness, ye will certainly be needin' no more persuasion than gazin' yar weary eyes upon our album art!"
