Pete and The Pirates are a misfit gang of five friends wonderfully out of step with all other bands and scenes.
Together, they produce music which is raw, joyous, melancholic, raucous and tender.

The band’s debut album – Little Death– was produced by Gareth Parton (the Go! Team, Foals)

Pete and the Pirates headline the Stolen Recordings April tour (with support from Let’s Wrestle and Artefacts for Space Travel)
