New single from the Danish Rock band Dead Smiling Pirates

Dead Smiling Pirates has just release the new single ‘Dandruff Killer Punch’ for their upcoming album 'Harvest On A Hype'.

Copenhagen, Denmark, February 12, 2012 - Dead Smiling Pirates has just release the new single ‘Dandruff Killer Punch’ for their upcoming album 'Harvest On A Hype'.

Lead singer Kim Burmeister said: ‘Dandruff Killer Punch’ was the song that most testers believe is a potential hit. Therefore, we release it as a single.

Dead Smiling Pirates hails from Copenhagen, Denmark. The three pirates set sail on the musical oceans for a life of music piracy in 2006 and released a debut album in 2007. This power packed trio plays catchy alternative rock filled with an eclectic mix of influences highlighted by lots of tight breaks, trashy guitar riffs, and punk influenced vocals. They back up their sound with attitude focusing on the irony of life, and lyrics about egoism, ethics, and beyond.

The new album 'Harvest On A Hype' is going to be released on February 27th 2012.
