In 2007, the haunting roar of traditional sea shanties inspired a few misfits to start Vancouver’s drunkest, punkest folk band. Now, in 2019, The Dreadnoughts are coming back to the music they love. We are proud to announce the release of INTO THE NORTH, a collection of traditional and original sea shanties recorded deep in the Canadian hinterland. Our official release is November 15, 2019, and the album will be available for vinyl, CD and digital pre-order in just a few days!
Holed up for a week in a small wooden cabin with nothing but whiskey in our glasses, four microphones in front of us, and hordes of mosquitoes outside singing along, we belted these damn songs over and over until we had them just right, and the result is the album we’ve always wanted to make. Stay tuned for pre-release info and track-by-track introductions, all coming soon!
