Note: This is a record label. For the manufacturing company please use Pirates Press.

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 - 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, and projects that they as a company choose to support and reinvest their money in! The last three years have found that hobby turning into a profitable venture, allowing them to help some of their favorite independent bands (both big and small), and get their music out there in truly spectacular ways. The position they are in as a manufacturer allows them to highlight some of the most cutting edge and 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!

I love the music that this company puts out and distributes. I have been a part of the scene since 86 and try to support it financially and through shows when I can. This is why I was very disappointed when I ordered the Bishops Green album through their online store.
At checkout I was given one mailing option, with a disclaimer to choose the cheapest and that they would send media mail if available and only send priority of it is the only available means. My only option was priority, making it 9 dollars and change to ship two albums in America. I sent emails about this and received convoluted responses. I chose to order the albums anyway, believing that since priority was my only option then it fit the category of their definition as to when available. When I received my shipping order it said they sent it media mail. I emailed them and received an apology for my not understanding their verbal gymnastics.
They said their website provider causes this confusion, but they choose to use them. I stated, before I ordered that I do not want to order if I am going to be charged for priority, which is double hat of media mail, if I was not going to receive the service,
As I said, I love this music. I really like what Pirates Press distributes. I must warn potential buyers through their website however that they will potentially scam you on shipping.

****Follow up. After some back and forth with them they sent it priority, and included some extra stickers and paper records. I have to commend them for doing so, but as far as I know the site may still only offer priority or a more expensive option for some shoppers and their policy is still to only ship media mail. I will let the review stand until I see otherwise.
