Video Premiere: The Dread Crew of Oddwood – ‘Leather Ship’

Pirate metal is no laughing matter but this new song from The Dread Crew of Oddwood might be. Calling their music “pirate metal,” the group of ruffians play acoustic folk metal-influenced tunes about life on the high seas. With new album Rust & Glory on the way, The Dread Crew of Oddwood are singing tunes of their travels so that their names become commonplace in the pirate history books.

New song “Leather Ship” is a mighty important tale, as The Dread crew tell Decibel:

“After years of abuse and neglect, our mighty sea vessel was in dire need of repairs. Wood is cool and all, but since our crew lacks a shipwright, and Wolfbeard O’Brady is a master leatherworker, the solution was simple. Replace all parts of the ship with leather! ALL parts of the ship. We assembled at our favorite fancy tavern (you know the place), to discuss what the video for ‘Leather Ship’ would look like. How many people could we turn into leather? What’s our budget? What even IS a budget?! After three hours of arguing and racking up a bar tab not fit for this economy, we were left with only enough money to have ONE leather crew member. Come witness the whole glory of our leather parrot!”

How does a man turn to leather, you ask? Why are they shooting at a priest? Where did they find a blunderbuss in 2024? For all these answers and more, tune into the video for “Leather Ship” below. To avoid getting thrown in the brig, make a pre-order or check out Rust & Glory on Bandcamp now.
