Merry 2015 from the Mirth


Gar! We’re freezing our respective arses off out here but the new album is taking shape like a colossal stinkbeast. It’s going to be called “Hark! The Headland Approacheth”. We’ve got a couple of shows lined up at the end of Jan down southwest way before we return to apply the final touches to the album and then return to rock the UK with some more shows in the spring. Hark!


There’s only four chances to get your Mirth injection at live shows before the year turns, as the new album takes the helm on the duties… the first of which is going to be a gargantuous affair of spooktacular groggery! Sea poster for details… (design by pictographik)


SAT 1 NOV – LONDON Battersea Barge – Halloween Ghost Ship Party with special guests Bird Radio & The Well Rested. Tickets nearly selling out so get yours ‘ere – (mini link). The Big Noise are puttin this on so expect a banger and get mashed!

FRI 14 NOV – BRISTOL Old Malt House – with John Langan Band. Details to follow

FRI 19 DEC – DERBY Ryans Bar – with guests tbc – free entry!

NYE 31 DEC – NOTTINGHAM The Maze – with Bendigo Band and more


Blubber blubber blubber!

Yes it’s been an emotional one again, now as the chills of the brutal winter creep through the planks we reflect on our far flung forays- we’ve thoroughly enjoyed many festies this summer including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Beat Herder, Funny As Folk, Big Noise, Off The Tracks, and a recent one day tour of Devon where we righteously pilfered the county of all its Buckfast supply. 

Be sure to catch us sea dogs at Alchemy festival – we be commandeering the main stage at 5pm with a few cheeky tricks up our sleeves! Not only that, we’ll be joined by Hallouminati, Grace & The Magic Roots, Geofest crew, Earth Bound Misfits, Will Tun & the Wasters, Crinkle Cuts and many more acts of stupendous splendour!


Sorry for the lack of posts here, we’ve obviously been having far too much fun.

Well, we’ve been hanging out of our collective arses for over a week now, but it’s safe to say our EuroTour was beyond immense. Thanks to all and everyone that we met in the Netherlands and Germany, we had an absolute barrel of laughs to say the least! We played 8 shows in 10 days – Den Bosch, Amsterdam, Leeuwarden, Karlsruhe, Freiburg, Aachen, Helgoland and Emmen. All were solid party pirate dancing times!

Plenty more snaps on our Facebook page, but here be a picture of us making friends with the locals on the dunes of Heligoland, home to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Butterfahrt festival, most definitely one to remember!

More news – we’re confirmed for GLASTONBURY! Playing the Hellfire stage on the Saturday 6-7pm. A tankard is well in order. More shows just confirmed, this is our final list of gigs for the summer, while we still try and batter out the new album!



TOUR posterToday we shall be commencing our European foray o’ doom!! We’re all dripping in excitement to be playing in Amsterdam on Kings Day weekend, and our first festival of the year – Rock ‘n’ Roll Butterfahrt – a pirate punk festy on the isle of Heligoland… answers to “where on earth?” are welcome, tis in the middle of the German bight sea area of course!! If you’re planning on comng to a show out there, please come say ahoy and chat to us, we’re ready for an abnormally awesome adventure!! XD

New Music Video! FOG

Yes yes y’all! Biggidy big ups to our man with the lens, Mr Jack Smith for splicing this feast of a vid. All footage is taken from our Euro tour of yesteryear, The Piratical Sabbatical I. What a gay ol’ time we had. More of that to come this spring when we re-visit Belgium, Netherlands and plunder Germany!

Anyways, enough talk, hit that play button!

Happy 2014 from the ‘Mirth

Absolute pandemonium at the Canalhouse in Nottingham last night. We had soooooo much fun, cheers to all that came for our best New Years show yet!

Here’s to another year of buckling swash by the gallon, more bangin’ festivals, a European tour and a new album!

…and to obviously purchase this fabulous light fixture.
