PIRATES PRESS RECORDS: The label has always been driven by a love for music and vinyl, and a desire to combine the two and make records that turn heads – after making literally millions of records for other people, the Pirates found it a natural progression to put a few out for themselves – highlighting the music, bands, projects and products that they as a company choose to support and reinvest their money in!
The last few years have found this advertising arm of the manufacturer a flourishing success in its own right, getting some of their favorite bands’ music out there in truly spectacular ways. The position they are in as the most cutting edge vinyl manufacturer in the world allows them to highlight some of the most innovative projects anyone has ever made – before anyone else does – for the bands that they love. That is a very special position to be in, for everyone involved.
The support seen on a retail level, and just in the general support of followers and fans is overwhelming, and continues to fuel that desire to put out more records that they feel can benefit from that Pirates Press touch!
